Product design & development
All of our new products are designed using the most advanced CAD 3D modelling systems by our team of experienced application and CAD design engineers.
Static Mixers basically consists of a set of serially placed twisted, helically shaped elements with a pitch of 34°. After a rotation of 180°, a new rotation starts in reversed direction. Each leading edge of the succeeding element is rotated 90° from its predecessor. Euromixers - Primix static mixers can be constructed with diameters ranging from 3.5 mm up to 2,000 mm.
|The Quatro static mixer |
Construction of the quarto element is comparable to the standard helically shaped element, but it is manufactured by bending a flat metal strip and grinding afterwards, to the final shape and diameter. The finished profile depends on the diameter.
Flow through the static mixer element is diverted into two separate streams. Optimisation of the profile induces equal radial and axial flow, the helix pitch creates a rotation of the fluid, by which the fluid flows from the outside to the inside and reverse. The differences in velocity that occurs creates a shearing of the fluids.
|After one rotation through the static mixer element a second diversion takes place and simultaneously a reverse of the succeeding rotation in the next mixing element occurs.|
As the number of streams or layers increases, the layer thickness decreases.
After only 20 rotations in a 50mm diameter Static mixer, mixing at molecular level is achieved 20 diversions of the fluid creates 220 separate layers, each 0.05 micron thick.
