Static mixers are mostly known for their uses in mixing two fluids. However, there is a much wider range of applications in a wide variety of industries:

Chemical industry

  • Mixing reactive products efficiently and using a short distance
  • Dispersing immiscible liquids in washing and extraction processes
  • Mixing gases with air before they reach catalytic reactors (e.g., the production of nitric acid)
  • Dissolving gases into liquids (like NH3, SO2, Cl2)
  • Hot and cool viscous product flows

Water and wastewater treatment

  • Mixing different water qualities
  • Aerating drinking water
  • PH control of wastewater with acids and bases
  • Mixing flocculants with wastewater
  • Dissolving gases like CO2, O2, Cl2 and ozone

Oil, gas and petrochemicals

  • Blending different crude oil qualities
  • Desalting crude oil
  • Blending additives into fuel, gasoline, oil
  • Feed mixing steam and methane
  • Mixing oils with sulfuric acid

Food industry

  • Blending different fruit juice qualities
  • Heating and cooling during chocolate processing
  • Adding CO2 to wine, beer and fruit juices
  • Diluting concentrates before filling

Plastics injection molding and extrusion

  • Homogenize colorant, melting temperature and viscosity prior to using a mold or die

Polymer production

  • Mixing low viscosity additives into polymer melts
  • Hot and cool polymers
  • Polymerization in plug flow reactors

2 components processing (2K)

  • Car or boat paint mixing
  • Filler fabrication before use
  • Silicone application on location

Other industries

  • Mixing natural gas of different qualities
  • Pharmaceuticals, medicines, and creams
  • Medical and dental applications
  • Pulp and paper processing
  • Cosmetics and detergents
  • Mineral water treatment
  • Power plants, heating water control
  • Catalyst manufacture and catalytic reactors
  • Environmental and pollution processing
