When you keep doing something the same way for a long time, a sense of complacency develops. This is also true for old-school manufacturing facilities that have been running operations in the same way forever.
Of course, the urge to change things and adopt something new doesn’t develop unless something is wrong and needs to be changed, so things keep moving in the same, monotonous fashion.
In an industrial setting, sticking to the old ways and resisting change can not only result in poor production value but also lead to rising costs.
For instance, a facility might keep using large tank mixers because there’s nothing wrong with the production and the system works fine. However, tank mixers are old fashioned, and not designed to provide the efficiency that a large manufacturing facility needs today.
That is the reason why static mixers are so preferred by companies today, because they work quicker, offer more control, and provide greater efficiency.
Also called motionless mixers, they have no moving parts and the force is supplied by an auxiliary pump. They are smaller than tank mixers, and also are easier to operate.
Facilities find that using static mixers make their business more efficient and cost effective while also cutting short the production time. The following are a few reasons why Komax static mixers are better than tank mixers.
