Mixers: Four Innovations Worth a Closer Look

By Christine Banaszek, Charles Ross & Son Company |

Many factors can impact the success of mixing in chemical process operations. The design breakthroughs profiled here address some of the most commonly encountered issues The last few decades have not lacked for innovations in mixing technology. As the chemical process industries (CPI) have made great strides in developing novel raw materials, enhanced value-added formulations and improved processes — in response to ever-changing consumer preferences and legislation — the science and art of mixing has continued to evolve, too, to meet the demands of modern production. Mixer manufacturers have needed to quickly adapt and respond to real issues that are encountered, from research and development (R&D) all the way through scaleup and commercial production. While many of the solutions commonly take the form of strategic modifications applied to prevailing technologies, there are others that ultimately give rise to more drastic innovations and thus become a new mixer category all their own. As with most novel devices and ideas, mixing innovations do take time to spread and gain widespread usage, some more than others. In this article, we review four specialty equipment designs that provide a range of processing and operational…
