What are Static Mixers?
Our Static mixers are a series of geometric mixing elements fixed within a pipe, which use the energy of the flow stream to create mixing between two or more fluids. Throughout the years Koflo has optimized the design of our static mixers to achieve the greatest amount of mixing with the lowest pressure loss possible. Whether your application involves low viscosity fluids, high viscosity fluids, fibrous materials, or just the need for a quick flash blend, we have a static mixer design available to optimize your blending process.
Blade Design Static Mixers
Our blade design static mixers were designed primarily for low to medium viscosity applications. Our unique counter rotating high velocity spin cycles increase the number of fluid divisions as the flow velocity increases, making this the most versatile static mixer on the market.
Helical Design Static Mixers
Helical design static mixers have two fluid divisions per element, almost regardless of fluid viscosity or velocity. These static mixers are used primarily for high viscosity blending or the folding of two or more ingredients.
Non-Clog Static Mixers
Koflo developed non-clog static mixing in response to a segment of the market that avoided static mixers due to their inherent nature of clogging when strings or fibers were present in the main flow. This design has proven itself from municipal wastewater to the effluent of meat processing plants, and is recommended anytime a flow stream contains a material that has the potential to attach itself onto an element.
Wafer Style Mixers
These units are designed for applications where length is critical, or for mixing light viscosity chemicals into a water stream with a very high velocity. Although these are good for a limited amount of applications, a static mixer should still be used if adequate room and headloss permits.
