The Rotary Jet Mixer (photo) effectively handles liquid and powder mixing, gas dispersion and cleaning-in-place (CIP) while reducing time, energy and costs. In many applications, the mixer provides faster and more efficient mixing than conventional methods, says the company. It combines high blending precision with minimized mixing times and up to a 50% reduction in energy requirements. Based on rotary-jet head technology, it can be used in tanks between 100 and 800,000 L in size. Equipped with two or four nozzles, the Rotary Jet Mixer is positioned below the liquid level in the tank. Liquid is withdrawn from the tank outlet by a pump and circulated via an external loop to the mixer. A single Rotary Jet Mixer can handle liquid-mixing, gas-dispersion and powder-dispersion applications — plus tank cleaning — without requiring separate equipment for each process, thereby delivering significant savings, says the company. — Alfa Laval AB, Lund, Sweden
