Static Mixer Working Principle

Nov 21, 2017

The working principle of the static mixer is to let the fluid flow in the pipeline impact various types of plate elements, increase the velocity gradient or form turbulent flow of the laminar fluid, laminar flow is "segmentation - position movement - reunion", when turbulent flow, In addition to the above three cases of fluid, but also in the direction of the cross-section produce violent eddy currents, a strong shear force acting on the fluid, the fluid further segmentation and mixing, and finally mixed to form the desired emulsion. The reason why it is called a "static" mixer means that there are no moving parts in the pipe and only stationary components.

Static mixer mixing process is a series of installed in the hollow pipe in different specifications of the mixing unit. As a result of the mixing unit, the fluid is left-handed, right-handed, and right-handed, changing the direction of the flow mixer constantly, pushing the center fluid to the periphery and pushing the peripheral fluid towards the center, resulting in a good radial mixing effect. At the same time, the rotation of the fluid itself occurs at the interface of the adjacent components. This perfect radial circulation allows the material to be mixed uniformly. Static mixers are non-moving, high-efficiency mixing equipment that cuts, shears, rotates, and remixes two or more fluids through a mixing unit trim held inside the tube to achieve well-dispersed and well-mixed fluids purpose.
