The Rushton impeller, also known as the Rushton turbine, is a well-known and widely used impeller. It's a type of radial flow impeller commonly used to mix and stir liquids in tanks or vessels.

The primary purpose of the Rushton impeller is to mix and blend fluids efficiently.

Its design creates radial flow patterns that generate strong fluid movement throughout the tank, ensuring that the contents are thoroughly mixed.

Rushton impellers are also effectively used for the suspension of solid particles within a liquid medium. However, the impeller should be installed near the bottom head. The high-speed rotation of the blades creates upward currents that prevent solid particles from settling at the bottom of the tank.
