A static mixer is a precision engineered device for continuous mixing of fluids. They consist of an arrangement of mixing elements installed in a pipe or duct. They function without moving parts and are used to achieve specific dispersion and mixing in a continuous process. They are capable of mixing materials with equal or different viscosities and volume flow rates. The fluid flow is provided by pumping.
Static mixers are used to deliver effective performance for a number of mixing tasks. They can be used in a blending operation when two soluble components are mixed together to achieve the required droplet size and mass transfer. They are typically used in a number of heat exchange operations where temperature homogenization is achieved or in gas-liquid, liquid-liquid or gas-gas contacting operation.
In a static mixer based on the laminar principle, the flow is repeatedly split into sub-flow which are merged again. The correct pitch creates a balanced flow from outside to inside and vice versa. The medium to be mixed is thus mixed in a large number of thin layers.
In a static mixer based on the turbulent mixing principle the mixing effect is mainly achieved by internal rotation and the shearing of the layers of fluid at the point.
We have a strong belief that maximum performance in a process can only be achieved with the right design. Owing to our vast experience and technical expertise in the field of mixing technology we carefully consider the parameters and pre-conditions before developing the best mixer to suit your application. As a result we deliver highly efficient static mixers that link 100% to the process with an energy saving, sustainable and maintenance free technology.
