ISG Static Mixers for High-viscosity Applications

October 23, 2013

Ross ISG static mixerThe Ross Interfacial Surface Generator (ISG) is a patented Static Mixer designed for laminar flow processes such as blending a minor component into a viscous stream. Despite having very different viscosities or densities, fluids entering an ISG Static Mixer are repeatedly combined and subdivided into layers until a homogenous mixture is achieved. Starting with two input streams entering the mixer, over 2 million layers emerge after just 10 elements. The ISG Static Mixer can be supplied as a complete plug-in module or as individual elements for installation into an existing pipe or tubing.
