If you happen to go back in time and find yourself on an 18th century farm, you would probably be burned as a witch for suggesting that butter doesn’t have to be churned mechanically but can instead travel through a ‘magical’ static mixer. We’re not ashamed to admit those times are thankfully passed, but still today people are unsure about the effectiveness of static mixers. Let us take you through three typical misconceptions and show how Komax Mixers effectively bury these thoughts.
Static Mixers are Easily Jammed: Our static mixers have been implemented as a precursor to mechanical mixers as a way of easing the clogging tension of these mechanical mixers. Not only do our static mixers stand up to the yet un-sheared inputs, they actually complete the job of the mechanical mixers with no problem. There you have it, in an effort to ease the workload of other mixers our products have effectively taken on the entire job with no problems of clogging or breaking down.
Static Mixers are Loud: While this may be true for some, our mixing elements are positioned with the elegance of a Swiss watch, thus completely eliminating sound, vibration, and the tunneling effects of other options. This greatly increases the life expectancy of entire systems.
Static Mixers Create Large Pressure Drops: Again, this is completely wrong with Komax Mixers. Although our products mix more completely than other options, they do so by utilizing existing flow and preserving momentum. By doing so, the pressure drop in flow rates is minimal. With all size mixers and all types of inputs, our mixers operate with miniscule flow reduction.
Hopefully you haven’t scanned this posting and read the headlines, because as you will see when using a Komax Static Mixer all of the bold statements become nothing more than myth.
