There is nothing more frustrating than experiencing downtime in the manufacturing process due to mixing issues. Fortunately, there are ways to minimize these problems, or to reduce the turbulence in your turbulent flow, so to speak. It all starts with analyzing your mixer.
Just because you have a static mixer doesn’t mean it’s the right one for your processes. Outdated technology or cheaper mixers are going to require replacement and can create more problems than they solve. In some cases, the mixer simply may not be big enough. Sizing your mixer properly can eliminate some of the issues you are having, and if you have difficulty determining the proper size, contact Komax for help. Modernizing a mixer can often make a tremendous difference in the way your operations are conducted. Komax’s modern designs combine serious innovation with a close understanding of the industries we serve.
Mixers are based on line size, number of mixing elements and pressure drop. A Komax Triple Action mixer is an incredibly innovative product that can revolutionize your position in your industry. Two-By-Two-Division divides and re-divides the process stream with a series of elements set at right angles to each other. Twenty elements produce over a million divisions and recombinations! Cross-Current Mixing uses special cavities to randomize the distribution of material by direct steam impingement, which enhances the two-by-two process. Some early static mixers had tunneling effects that were undesirable. Komax’s Back-Mixing process produces elliptical vortices rotating in opposite directions, marking a significant improvement in mixing efficiency.
Working closely with an expert can help your company solve targeted issues particular to your manufacturing process. Why not develop a partnership with Komax and see how our innovative designs can reduce your energy costs and maximize your efficiency?
