There is no one static mixer that is capable of all process applications. Therefore, there are many static mixer designs and builds to assure that the right one for your needs is met. The one thing that all the industries have in common is that throughout the process industries a static mixer is in high demand.
Static mixers also called motionless mixers, a tool with no moving parts and a series of elements within a tube. While it may sound basic, it effectively mixes multiple liquids in what can be complicated process of dividing and recombining into a uniform mixture. Static mixers are not only for mixing but can also be used for reaction processes. While flow in an empty pipe produces some mixing, adequate mixing does not occur. By inserting a static mixer, it accelerates the inline mixing or reaction.
The need is seen wherever a continuous, efficient, and speed in the process is necessary.
The designs vary based on the single or multi-phase applications as well as the flow rate, viscosity, density, percentage of mixing components, and dimensions.
Sanitary Static Mixers are perfect for the Food and Beverage, and Pharmaceutical industries need a static mixer that stands up to the hygiene requirements. A design that can be clean-in-place, ease of assembly, and smooth metal.
Channel Static Mixers have a non-clogging mixing method that makes it ideal for mixing water treatment chemicals. It can be customized to fit either open or closed channels and works for both influent raw water and effluent water treatment.
When a traditional static mixer will not fit into the installation, the wafer static mixer is the solution. Komax created this static mixer to fit between existing pipe flanges for new or retrofit designs. While still mixing to the same exactness as the other designs, this one also allows for three injection ports.
Lined static mixers solve the problem of harsh chemicals and corrosion-resistant mixing. The Teflon & Kynar lined mixers solve the pipe corrosion problem that many industries find due to the aggressive chemicals that are constantly being mixed within the pipes.
The Komax Hi-Pass Sludge mixer is a non-clogging static sludge mixer that will mix a polymer solution prior to the dewatering process. It is the solution for solid fibrous materials and prevents “stapling” and plugging. Municipal Water and Waste Water industries find this to be the best design for their industry’s needs.
Static mixers are not only an important part of manufacturing and processing, it is a need that must be met. Working with a leading manufacturer is a necessity. Komax has been creating custom solutions within the static mixing industry for over 47 years. Whether it is mixing and heating of liquids, sludges, slurries, and gases, they have a line of static mixers and direct injection steam heaters to fulfill your needs.
