Mixers offer complete mixing and flow division

October 8, 2008

Kenics® KM Series Static Mixers from Chemineer, Inc. feature a patented helical mixing element which produces complete radial mixing and flow division for any combination of liquids, gases or solids. The smooth element geometry results in efficient mixing of miscible fluids in laminar or turbulent flow and dispersion of immiscible fluids or gases while producing very low pressure drop. They have no moving parts and require no external power or regular maintenance. Four distinct styles are offered: fixed-element, removable-element, edge-sealed element, and element-assembly. Ranging in size from 1/8" to 48", it is available in a wide variety of materials of construction including all commercial metals and alloys, FRP, PVC/CPVC, and PTFE.
