- Top Entry Mixers – material goes in from the top and is used to mix varying degrees of viscosity. It can also be mounted through various options.
- Mag Drive Mixers – contains an outer and inner magnet where the outer one provides power to a gearbox and the inner magnet and provides power from outer magnet to the shaft. Also has a shroud that blocks contaminates from drive components.
- Dynamic In-Line Mixers – powered by an electrical motor and contains one or more mixing elements that perform a rotary motion about the axis of the flow path.
- Static Mixers – not powered and has no moving parts. It just alters the flow pattern of the product by placing baffles in its path.
- Portable Mixers – allow you to use the mixer on different tanks and applications for varying flow patterns and dead spots.
- Simfloc Sludge/Polymer Mixer – innovative engineered inline mixing system that provides a simple and cost effective approach to improve sludge handling operations by promoting greater contact between the sludge and polymer. It increases solid cake concentration, reduces hauling charges and improves centrate quality.
Tank Mixer Applications
- Liquid Blending
- Solids Suspension
- Washing or Leaching
- Gas Dispersion and Absorption
- Heat Transfer
- Liquid Blending – the process of mixing of bulk solids with a small quantity of liquid.
- Solids Suspension – small solid particles that remain suspension in water as a colloid or from the motion of the water. Good for testing of water quality.
- Dispersion – a system in which particles are dispersed in a continuous phase of a different composition. It is classified by numerous ways, including how large the particles are in relation to the particles of the continuous phase, whether or not precipitation occurs, and the presence of Brownian motion.
- Dissolution – process by which a substance forms a solution in a solvent. The outcome of the process of dissolution is dictated by the thermodynamic energies involved.
- Emulsification – mixture of two or more liquids that are normally unblendable. In an emulsion, one liquid is dispersed in the other liquid. Usually used to manufacture polymer dispersions. Many process advantages include prevention of coagulation of product.
- Washing or Leaching – process of extracting a substance from a solid material that has come into contact with a liquid. The liquid is vital in leaching because it facilitates the ability to remove a substance from a solid material.
- Gas Dispersion and Absorption – for mass transfer. The agitator can affect the kla which will ultimately influence the mass transfer rate in the process. Gas absorption or scrubbing is an operation in which a gas mixture is contacted with a liquid for the purpose of preferentially dissolving one or more components of the gas mixture and to provide a solution of them in the liquid.
- Crystallization – chemical solid-liquid separation technique, in which mass transfer of a solute from the liquid solution to a pure solid crystalline phase occurs.
- Heat Transfer – heat is transferred by conduction from the wall of the vessel or surface of the internal heating elements to the contents of the vessel. Mixing helps aid in this by speeding up conduction from heat transfer surfaces, and helps promote heat transfer by forced convection. Heat transfer is similar to blending.
