  • Ketchup manufacturer replaces stirred tanks with static mixer

    Over twenty years ago Hunt Wesson (ConAgra) installed the Komax static mixers in all of their plants in North America. The first Komax installation was in Hunt Wesson"s Southern California plant. One 4 inch diameter Komax Ketchup mixing system out produced fifteen 5000 lb stirred tanks that were used for their daily production. Two months after installation Komax added a short flanged tube ...

  • Inline static mixer simplifies process & reduces cost for yogurt manufacturer

    The increasing popularity of yogurt in recent years-requiring greater production capacity and efficiency-has brought about a need to “re-think” just how best to feed raw materials into mixing and blending systems, and into filling machines. Initially, in most European and U.S. plants, the mixing of milk, yogurt culture, and additives was essentially a hand-batching process. This ...

  • 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 ...

  • Kenics static mixer increased production rates and productivity yield when used for adding pigment color

    Adding a pigment color to a dynamic mixer that is also used for non-colored products creates color contamination of the wetted parts and results in increased labor as well as production time and yield losses that directly affect the bottom line. The Kenics KM Series Static Mixer, manufactured and marketed by Chemineer, Inc., provides an alternative solution to adding pigment color that eliminates ...

  • Static Mixing Technology in the Textile Fibers Industry for Improved Quality and Production Flexibility

    INTRODUCTION A static mixer is a stationary in line device installed in a pipe or flow channel to accomplish mixing and related effects as a fluid flows through its structure. The concept is simple and very attractive for the continuous processing of fluids ...


  • Komax teflon lined mixer simplifies acid injection for power plant

    A major source of waste water in many power plants is the waste stream that results from ion exchange used for demineralizing the boiler feed water. The alkaline regeneration waste stream produced by the ion exchange process requires the addition of an acid to this stream before discharge from the plant. Regulatory authorities typically require the effluent to have a near neutral pH before ...

  • In-line mixer handles tough blending job - tomato paste and water at 100 gpm

    Citrus World, Florida’s third largest fruit co-op, recently expanded its product line to include tomato juices. In doing so, the Lake Wales based processor ran across a difficult blending problem. Daniel Cronin, engineer on the project, says the co-op tried various vessels and mechanical mixing devices, in attempts to blend viscous tomato paste and water. None proved adequate, including ...

  • 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 ...

  • Turbulent Mixing in DeNOx Plants

    Industrial plant designers guarantee certain efficiency. In DeNOx plants for example the mixing process has a major influence on the efficiency. Sulzer Innotec can revert to several years experience in the simulation of turbulent mixing allowing us to quantitatively predict such applications. DeNOx plants In the last quarter century, air pollution has become a global environmental problem. ...


  • Improving Heat Transfer in Heat Exchangers

    Untitled Document 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 ...

  • Cavitation leads to perfect mixes

    Development of accurate classification of cavitation types, as well as any classification, has to be based on a choice of general summary classification signs. For example, it can be different by constructive signs of work parts, by character of a course of process, by cavities types and other general classification signs. In present time distinguish the following types of cavitation: static, ...

  • Steam Heater Pulp Stock Heating Paper Mill

    After upgrading its bleach plant in 1987 to accommodate a two-stage elemental chlorine-free (ECF) bleach sequence, Cross Pointe Paper (now Flambeau River Papers LLC), Flambeau mill in Park Falls, Wis. subsequently added a totally chlorinefree (TCF) sequence in response to market demand. The TCF sequence, however, required heating, rather than cooling, of the mill's mediumconsistency stock during ...

  • Field-scale cleanup of atrazine and cyanazine contaminated soil with a combined chemical-biological approach

    A former agrichemical dealership in western Nebraska was suspected of having contaminated soil. Our objective was to characterize and remediate the contaminated site by a combined chemical-biological approach. This was accomplished by creating contour maps of the on-site contamination, placing the top 60 cm of contaminated soil in windrows and mixing with a mechanical high-speed mixer. ...
