Elements provide turbulent or laminar mixing
- V shaped mixing element design
- For static mixers with a diameter of approx. 50 mm to infinity
- Very suitable for mixing gases or with large contact surface, mostly suitable for gas, but also for liquids
- Suitable for large tube diameters
- Suitable for short mixing lengths
- Minimal space required for mixing or dispersion
- Quick mass transfer through continuous renewal of the interfaces.
Depending on the element chosen, mixing can be divided into turbulent and laminar. In case of turbulent mixing we are talking about mixing substances where the viscosity is watery or slightly higher. The flow speeds are relatively high. Radial mixing occurs relatively often, and a technical homogeneous mixture has already been obtained in a short section . Laminar mixing occurs with substances with a high to very high viscosity. The speeds are low and the pressure drops are high. Radial mixing hardly ever occurs. The mixing effects are concentrated around the transition of the mixing elements. There the two layers are forced to mix and then forced into each other so that four layers occur, and so on. At the menu item 'operating principle' you can read more about turbulent and laminar mixing.
Dosing Ports or Injectors
In processes in which the mixing ratios are wide apart from each other or in which physical material properties vary greatly, it is important to add the additive to the main flow via an injection unit. One possibility could be a centre line injection, but also injectors in the shape of a clarinet are interesting; the many possibilities can also be supplied as a demountable version . The advantage of an injector is that the additive is injected into the main flow at an ideal point, before the first mixing element, so that the mixing action takes place significantly more efficiently. FLUIDYNE can advise you in choosing the most ideal version for your application.
