Sometimes you don’t need complex or expensive devices and machines for getting work done. A small, simple tool can often accomplish some great purposes. The static mixer is this type of product.
It is motionless, doesn’t take up too much space, and can be used for a variety of industries, from water treatment to petrochemical.
While there are numerous brands manufacturing static mixers, can all of them be trusted? Not really. There are certain factors that build trust in a brand. You can’t just pick any static mixer for your factory or industry. You need only the best.
The Komax Advantage
Komax is one such company that’s been in business for over 40 years, making a variety of inline static mixer. The company is the world leader in static mixer engineering, and has over 40 heat transfer and mixing patents.
The unique advantage of Komax static mixers is that only these static mixers offer the unique triple action performance. This triple action functionality helps deliver the highest level of efficiency.
All static mixers by Komax have high efficiency due to their short mixing length. There are fiberglass static mixers that are used in mills, there are wafer static mixers that are used for additive mixing. Then there is the desuperheater, which is a simple yet sophisticated concept for effective mixing.
Komax supplies their static mixers to several industries, including water treatment, biofuel, agriculture, plastic, petrochemical, and sewage treatment. Over the years, the list of clients of Komax has grown by leaps and bounds. Simple and effective is the mantra of the company.
Komax Hi-Pass Static Mixer
Among its most popular mixers, the Hi-Pass static mixer is one of the best buys. It has smooth contours and a large radius, which prevent clogging and fouling. The mixer has no corners, so there’s less chance of solids or fibers getting trapped in the mixer. This mixer from Komax has a nominal diameter half of the sludge mixer, and easily passes individual solids.
The mixing happens with the help of a four-element set that comes with three inter-set cavities. Being a motionless mixer, the performance isn’t affected by any standing or trailing vortex flow, so changes in the incoming flow don’t affect the efficiency of the mixing.
There are three mixing technologies used by this mixer: counter rotating, two-by-two, and cross current. When these three work together, they deliver high wall-to-wall radial transfer, eliminating tunneling or streaming effects.
