Slurries form an important element of any manufacturing plant. Slurry is a watery mixture that can be made of a number of things, from cement to lime to corn starch. Slurries also contain fine particles of solids sometimes. Slurries have several applications in various industries.
They are usually heavy and flow with the help of gravity, but they may also need to be pumped if the thickness isn’t much. For making the right consistency slurries, a static mixer is vital industrial equipment.
The right way
As we are aware, static mixers are used for making uniform mixtures. It could be used to blend two liquids or two gases. It may also be used to blend solids into liquids. Mixing happens at every manufacturing plant all the time, and given that it’s such a vital task, it should be done properly and cost effectively.
Usually, in large units, huge tank mixers are used for mixing purposes. They are large, take a lot of space for installation, consume electricity, and cannot handle smaller mixing jobs. While tank mixers are still part of every industrial setting, static, or inline mixers are more preferred because of the numerous advantages.
Slurries are of various types and static motionless mixers help blend them like no other. Slurries can be of the following types:
A clean fit and outstanding results
What makes static mixers ideal for making slurries is the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of the tool. Static mixers have no moving parts, don’t require electricity, and can be installed in a small space.
They can easily handle smaller mixing jobs, without adding to energy costs. Static mixers are also more affordable than larger tank mixers. Even smaller manufacturing units can afford to install and use them without additional expenses.
For making slurries, Komax manufactures some of the best inline static mixers that produce the smoothest mixtures.
Static mixers are often custom designed according to specific areas of applications, and so are other industrial equipment like desuperheaters, steam heaters, and heat exchangers, all of which are manufactured by Komax.
