Static mixers play a vital role in industries throughout the globe – from bitumen to tomato paste! But just any old mixer won’t do. There are lots of options on the market, some with innovative takes on technology for specific industries. But none can quite match the power, design and purpose of a Komax Triple Action Static Mixer. Need a reason to fall in love? Read on!
The triple action process starts with division and re-division within the process stream. Two by two division with several elements set at right angles generates over a million combinations for mixing, as every element doubles the number of previous divisions. But there is more! In addition to the recombination process, the mixing also includes cross current mixing. This is done through special cavities that randomize distribution from the direct stream. Why is this valuable? Sometimes with lesser mixers, cross current mixing isn’t consistent or strong enough to make the mixture reliable. The randomized distribution optimizes the previous mixing, ensuring a consistent product.
Perhaps one of the most challenging aspects of the mixing process is back-mixing. Many mixers on the market currently do not have the capacity to avoid streaming and tunneling, where the stream doesn’t mix as thoroughly as it needs to. In the end, tunneling can create a batch of product with inconsistent results, and must be thrown out and redone, leading to waste and loss of money. The triple action of a Komax mixer moves material in an elliptical vortex rotating in opposite directions, moving the material from front to back. The back0mixing happens before the mixture ever hits later pipelines, leading to high efficiency rates and a consistent product.
Our Komax Triple Action Static Mixer will revolutionize the way you work on the floor! It just might be the one machine you cannot afford to be without!
