Whether it’s regulations like in the case of tailings management or perhaps a yearning for efficiency as is the case with reducing polymer additions, a Komax Hi-Pass Mixer can help save money and the environment. The extreme effectiveness of this mixer means that less polymer needs to be added to a flow in order to get the same results. In some cases even, less added polymer means a better output. With Komax, our mixer’s efficiency means you will get a better product for cheaper.
The Komax Hi-Pass mixer is just what it sounds like, a unit with the mixing capabilities Komax is known for with a non-fouling design capable of passing solids up to 50% of the pipe’s diameter. This radial transfer of contents ensures a complete mix is taking place and, combined with a polymer injector, this means that less polymer is needed to reach desired consistencies.
The problem with other options is that the extremely inconsistent distribution of materials within sludge means that mixing does not completely integrate polymer throughout the contents. Our Hi-Pass Static Sludge Mixer solves this problem through better mixing, thus decreasing the amount of polymer needed by up to 25%. When this is the case in a dewatering process, this more homogenous mixture also promotes a better output.
The genius of this mixer has also been introduced to bitumen froth production as it helps treat tailings. The better mix of tailings and polymer means wastewater spends significantly less time in tailing ponds and is instead reintegrated into the water table faster and cleaner.
Our static mixers are known for their effectiveness and low maintenance, but they are equally great because they help simplify other parts of production as well. Komax mixers are not just for improving single parts, but the entire production as a whole.
