Static mixer elements can reduce film buildup on the inside walls of your heat exchanger and improve heat transfer, allowing you to reduce heat exchanger size and space requirements.
The design of static mixer heat transfer equipment for adhesives, sealants, resins and polymers.
The fluids handled within the adhesives and sealant industries are amongst the most difficult to handle of any in the main process industries globally. The characteristics which make them particularly difficult to handle include: High viscosities (typically 1-2000 Pa.s, or 1000 to 2 million cP). Often non-Newtonian (viscosity is not constant and varies with shear rate). Some must be processed at temperatures close to their solidification/hardening points where they are close to changing phase from liquid to...
The Right Mix for Clean Air
Reducing air pollution is an increasingly important topic all around the world. Many governments—also in developing countries—set new limits for emissions such as nitrogen oxides in flue gas. Sulzer offers advanced mixing technology for flue gas cleaning. The installation in a large power plant shows that these high-performance mixers can cope with the most difficult requirements. The flue gas generated in combustion processes in power plants and industry needs to be cleaned from harmful emissions...
Kenics Heat Exchanger Increased Production Capacity in Specialty Chemical Plant
Increasing production capacity and setting a monthly production record are targeted goals for all manufacturers. To achieve this, all equipment and systems must work in perfect unison and perform to optimal efficiency. The Situation A large specialty chemical manufacturer located in Ohio was experiencing unsatisfactory production levels due to the plant’s old, outdated, inefficient equipment. The manufacturer was looking to upgrade the process equipment in order to increase the overall level of production....

Coagulant mixing revisited: theory and practice
Are rapid-mixing tanks with intense mixing necessary? Intense mixing applies to the coagulation mechanism of charge-neutralization of negatively-charged particles, but this is not a common coagulation method. More common is precipitation of aluminum or iron for coagulation of particles and natural organic matter, which is often called sweep-floc coagulation. Coagulation by precipitation is indifferent to mixing intensity. Energy and cost savings are realized by designing mixing systems for coagulation that do not...
