What To Know About Industrial mixing technologies

Mixing is an extremely intricate process and often critical in obtaining a quality product. You must adapt in your mixing processes highest standards that guarantee acceptable performance and reliability. Flexibility should be your core asset when handling materials with varying properties. Mixing processes need that you constantly strive to come up with innovative solutions in order to meet the evolving industrial needs.

As demand grows for industrial products, for example in the chemical industry, so is the need for large-scale high viscosity mixer technology for mixing liquids, both miscible or immiscible and both high and low viscosity liquids. For excellent quality, mixers are normally equipped with several agitation systems to give fluids a tri-directional displacement: Tangential, radial, and axial flows.

Mixers should be selected depending on the properties of fluids to be mixed and type of emulsion needed. You need mixers designed to give an optimum combination of turbulence shearing and circulation. Shearing is, for instance, needed when you need small diameter emulsion globules.

In case your application requires heat transfer, your choice of a mixer will be as important as the design of the entire system itself. You need reactors or dispensers designed to ensure a quick turnover for any particle coming into contact with the heat exchange surfaces. Mixers should therefore be chosen which ensure proper circulation of the fluid within the agitation system. The fluid should get sufficient tangential flow along the walls of the agitation systems and increased turbulence.

Food mixers

Selected mixers are applied to produce a product of a certain effect or appearance once mixed with other materials. Food mixers, for instance, are commonly used to whip, beat, blend, knead, fold, and mix edible ingredients. Stemming from stringent health and food regulations, food mixers must be sanitary.

Industrial mixers

Industrial mixers often consist of a large tank or vat to hold the materials as well as the blades that agitate the materials. Industries that adopt large-scale commercial production will most likely use industrial mixers to process materials in large quantities.


It possible for an industrial mixer manufacturer to customize a mix equipment. This comes with the benefits of having more control over the mixing process, which is something worth considering. In addition, custom agitation systems wear down less quickly compared to standard models. Some common specializations include, using high velocities to mix and agitate multiple materials and customizing the mixer to be able to handle significant variations in pressure.

Mixing is a modern process that’s almost in every industry. Whatever the industry, construction, chemical, or cosmetic, efficient mixing processes are highly desired, and this is why you need quality mixers.
