Static mixers play an important role in the treatment of water and waste water. Waste water treatment is actually a form of pollution control. Underneath the streets and roadways across the country is a vast system of sewers and pumping stations that send water to treatment plants. Generally,water is treated at these plants so it can be returned to natural waterways. It is interesting to note that at one time the volume of clean to waste water was so great there was hardly a need for treatment. Purification was natural and bacteria in the waters consumed organic and sewage material, rendering it harmless. However, the sheer number of people on the planet has changed this dynamic and water treatment is essential to avoid an outbreak of water borne illnesses.
The static mixer design used in water and waste water treatment is simply a sequence of stationary guide plates that instigate media mixing as it flows through a pipe – in which the liquid is pushed through individual and short paths of a geometric pattern. The advantage of the static mixer is that it ensures the entire fluid stream experiences mixing enforcement.
We are able to offer mixers in different designs and materials. This is essential because of the wide variety of process requirements that call for it. From options that help ensure polymer dilution to those that are specifically designed for sludge mixing, we have the variety necessary to help make certain your needs are met.
We invite you to contact us for more information if you are a civil engineer or in the field of water and waste water treatment. We are experts in the industry and confident we can address your needs.
