Sanitary Hygienic Static Mixer

Custom Static Mixer

Koflo manufactures a complete line of food/beverage quality sanitary static mixers. All sanitary static mixers are constructed of 316L stainless steel. The mixing elements are available in two design configurations. The standard blade design is for low to medium viscosity applications. The helical design is uniquely suited for high viscosity blending and/or folding applications. Each of these mixer designs are available in 6 and 12 element configurations depending on flowrate and viscosity. To meet the critical demands of most sanitary applications, the internal elements and housing are polished to a 20 Ra or better sanitary finish. Lower Ra finishes are available on sanitary mixer elements for ultra critical/pharmaceutical applications.

Standard Features

Sanitary static mixer with Tri-Clamp® end connections

Tri-Clamp® Ends

Tri-Clamp ends are a non-permanent piping connection method commonly used in sanitary applications such as food processing and are joined using C-shaped clamps . Tri-Clamp ends feature grooved indentations on the flange face which mate with a sealing gasket.

Note: Koflo does not provide clamps or gaskets with mixers configured with Tri-Clamp ends.

Sanitary static mixer with removable Koflo Blade™ mixing elements

Removable Elements

In sanitary applications, it is often necessary to gain access to the interior mixer elements for cleaning or removal of pipeline obstructions. Because of this, Koflo offers removable mixing elements. Koflo's removable Blade™ style elements are fully removable and are secured to the mixer by means of an element retention bar on the discharge end of the mixer (shown above). 

Element Design

Sanitary mixer with Koflo Blade™ elements

Koflo Blade™ Mixing Elements

The patented Koflo Blade™ style element provides Koflo's best-in-class efficient mixing ability for turbulent flow applications combined with minimal pressure (head) loss. Koflo's Blade™ elements are available in multiple configurations for demanding applications

  • Standard Design - Recommended for most applications. Koflo's standard configuration provides the best combination of mixing ability, pressure loss, and overall length.
  • Low Pressure Loss Design - For limited head pressure applications where lower pressure loss is a critical requirement. Lower pressure loss than standard design elements.
  • Ultra Low Pressure Loss Design - For critically limited head applications where lower pressure loss is paramount to the system design.
  • High-Mix Design - For space-constrained applications that demand Koflo's best-in-class mixing in a shorter overall length
Sanitary static mixer with removable helical mixing elements

Helical Mixing Elements

Koflo's helical-style static mixer elements are designed to provide optimal mixing for laminar / plug flow applications. Benefits of helical-style mixing elements include:

 

  • Optimal mixing for laminar or high-viscosity flows
  • Low pressure loss design
  • Ensure homogeneous mixing across large flow ranges

Other Options

Sanitary static mixer with optional heating / cooling jacket with inlet and outlet ports and removable helical elements

Heating / Cooling Jackets

Heating / Cooling jackets can be added to most sanitary configurations for heating, cooling, or maintaining thermal homogeneity within the process stream. Inlet and outlet ports are positioned for heating / cooling fluid to flow easily through the jacket system and can be configured to suit your equipment. 

Sanitary static mixer with flow straightening vane

Flow Straightening Vane

Flow straightening vanes can be added to the downstream end of any sanitary mixer to significantly reduce the flow rotation caused during the mixing process. Flow straightening vanes have a negligible impact on pressure loss. 

Please Note: Koflo offers many additional mixer options that may not be listed above. Please Contact Us to discuss other options or requirements for your specific application.
