  • 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 ...


  • 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 ...

  • 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, ...

  • 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. ...


  • Mixed waste composting trends

    It's been about 25 years since vendors started marketing systems to process mixed municipal solid waste via composting in the U.S. Today, there are 13 plants, most fulfilling their niche in the communities they serve - whether managing MSW in high tourism areas, or processing residual organics from materials recovery facilities. Table 1 provides summary data on the 13 facilities. While we did not ...

  • Shallow Soil Mixing - a case history

    Abstract Shallow Soil Mixing (SSM) is a sister technology to Deep Soil Mixing (DSM) developed to more economically improve soils within ten meters of the surface. SSM was recently utilized to provide a foundation for large effluent storage tanks as well as to contain foundation soils in the event of liquefaction from an earthquake. Two large storage tanks were required to be built ...

  • 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 ...

  • Compost in the mix for storm water management

    Bioretention areas, also known as rain gardens, are increasingly being used to capture and treat storm water runoff from impervious surfaces such as roofs, sidewalks and parking lots. These landscaped areas often feature native plants installed in an engineered soil mixture that includes compost. “Bioretention areas or rain gardens are an attractive storm water Best Management Practice (BMP) ...

  • 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 ...

  • Mixed MSW composting is steady as she goes

    Two new facilities came on line in 2006, while one ceased operation and a second is shifting to a new technology. Annual survey identifies a total of 14 plants. Part I STEADY-STATE may be the best phrase to describe the status of facilities composting mixed municipal solid waste in the United States. In fact, steady-state may be the best phrase to describe solid waste composting in general since ...

  • State Fish Hatcheries and Invasive Species Don’t Mix

    INTRODUCTION The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department is responsible for the protection and management of the state’s fish populations. Cultured fish are stocked in natural and manmade areas that are excellent for growth and survival but have little or no spawning habitat. Other stocking areas include natural water bodies where spawning and nursery habitats have been destroyed or isolated from ...

  • 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 ...

  • Application of initial value method in the static analysis of laterised concrete cylindrical shells under hydrostatic loading

    In Nigeria, the prices of building materials continue to increase sharply that there is growing need to explore the possibility of utilisation of local raw materials as alternatives for farm building construction. This study investigated the performance of a laterised cylindrical shell under hydrostatic loading. The properties of laterised concrete at optimum mix proportion were adopted in ...
