The food and beverage processing industry can not function at peak performance without static mixers. Static mixers allow for the continuous mixing of fluids within a pipeline. In fact, all fluid processing industries use static mixers for their applications. These industries include chemical processing, power generation, wastewater treatment, and food and beverage.
What Makes the Static Mixer an Essential Piece of Equipment?
The static mixer provides efficient, consistent products, with sanitary features, and clean-in-place (CIP). When it comes to consistency, these industries do not have the luxury of an inaccurate blend. An inaccurate blend can destroy the entire batch and slow down the production process. Within the food industry, it can mean just a bad-tasting batch or worse yet, a sour batch causing people to become sick if it is shipped out.
Plants these days are specifically under pressure to streamline and be cost-effective in order to make budget cuts and quotas.
Food and Beverage Density Mixing Examples
Komax Sanitary Static Mixer
The Komax engineers realized that food and beverage needed not only a high-quality static mixer, but one that meets the sanitation requirements of the industry. The appliances must meet these requirements due to the risk of contamination.
The inline motionless sanitary static mixer is well-equipped for producing blends in varying densities. The uniformity of the blends is key, therefore, this is what makes the Komax static mixer ideal. The mixer can convert a multi-component input stream into a flawless uniform blend.
The sanitary static mixer comes with sanitary tri-clover end fittings and removable elements it is very easy to clean. However, it provides a clean-in-place application so that it does not stop production for continuous cleaning and maintenance.
The mixing plates and housing are available in 316-stainless steel, which eliminates any chance of contamination caused by metals. The static mixers are also electro-polished.
Triple Action Static Mixing Elements
All of the Komax static mixers including the sanitary static mixer are built with the patented Equalizer Mixing Module. It provides mixing with two-by-two division, cross current/impingent mixing, and back mixing. Thus, utilizing these mixing methods it produces high mixing efficiency in a short lay length with low-pressure losses.
