For the most part, Teflon is a tough synthetic resin made by polymerizing tetrafluoroethylene, which is chiefly used to coat the cooking utensils made of a non-stick base and to make seals and bearings.
In simple words, Teflon is a type of plastic that is often used to coat pans. The main use of Teflon is to provide a very smooth surface so that the food does not stick to the utensil and cleaning is made simple. Static mixers made using Teflon material are known as a Teflon lined static mixer.
Teflon lined static mixers are of great use in the following industries:
It is always essential to have an innovative design and high-quality construction especially in the field of manufacturing equipment. This had paved the way for the introduction of Teflon lined static mixers.
Teflon lined static mixers are constructed using carbon steel, 316 stainless steel, PVC and fiberglass materials. It is lined with Teflon and Kynar. These mixers are good for inline chemical addition along with the concentrated acids or any other aggressive chemicals.
The Teflon mixing elements come with 25% glass filled for the purpose of additional strength. They come with a long lifespan and also with the capacity to handle any corrosive materials.
The Teflon lined static mixer is one of the best static mixers as it provides the highest level of mixing of any static mixer on the market. It is designed to be motionless which is mainly meant for use where additives to the main pipelines have already been introduced upstream of the mixer.
It even allows two, three or even four mixing elements for line size and pressure drop in order to create distinct types of mixing.
There is a unique flow straightener built into each mixer, which thereby eliminates any downstream centrifugal effects.
With the increasing demand and companies expecting fast, efficient low energy inline mixing in a durable and affordable package, the Teflon lined static mixer is undoubtedly the ideal alternative.
