- Recommended Mixing Equipment for Biodiesel
Biodiesel is a fuel derived from vegetable oils and animal fats. Oil from palm, jatropha, coconut and soybeans, as well as waste cooking oil, are some of the typical feedstocks for biodiesel production.
- Recommended Mixing Equipment for Water & Waste Treatment
Static Mixers allow for continuous dosing and blending of treatment chemicals into water and wastewater. Flocculants, disinfectants, neutralizing agents, pH conditioners and other chemicals are conveniently added into a flowing water stream and completely mixed within a relatively short length of pipe.
- Improve your extrusion process with a static mixer.
Interfacial Surface Generator (ISG) Static Mixers are particularly ideal for use in injection molding and extrusion applications. Benefits include uniform temperature and viscosity, accurate composition and highly repeatable quality of the finished product.
- Choosing the right static mixer
design for viscous mixtures
Static mixer designs vary widely and proper selection is key to achieving a homogenous mix within the allowed pressure drop or available pipe length. For viscous applications with space limitations but no maximum pressure drop, an Interfacial Surface Generator static mixer is recommended.
- Mixers for continuous dilution
Static mixers and rotor/stator mixers are utilized for truly continuous in-line dilution of concentrated solutions. Advantages include high throughput, low space requirement, easy installation, performance predictability and low maintenance..
- Continuous static mixing of multiple process streams
In many processes, mixing in pipelines is simpler and more economical than in vessels. In particular, continuous large-scale mixing of multiple liquid streams is easily accomplished in a static mixer arrangement. Advantages include fast blending, low maintenance, easy installation, and low energy requirement.
- Inline mixing of gases and liquids
Efficient mixing of gases and liquids is a critical step in many chemical and biological process technologies. Static mixers and inline rotor/stator mixers are typically used in gas-liquid applications where high intensity mixing, short contact time and/or continuous processing are required.
