When gas/liquid reactions with pure gases have to be created, the Gas Inducing Mixer is used. However, what type of customer comes to Jongia Mixing Technology for this agitator? And what are the next steps? What solution does Jongia Mixing Technology offer? In this article, this process from request to solution, will be highlighted.
Every request is unique
Jongia Mixing Technology receives customer’s requests in various ways. However, regarding the Gas Inducing Mixer, e-mail is often the medium through which Jongia Mixing Technology receives requests. Knowledge levels of customers who are interested in using the Gas Inducing Mixer, are often (reasonably) high. When a customer submits their request, Jongia Mixing Technology always provides a custom and fitting solution, never a standard one. Jongia Mixing Technology considers ensuring the quality of the customer’s product as their main priority. (Potential) customers are interested in Jongia Mixing Technology’s craftmanship, because the Gas Inducing Mixer requires relatively little power consumption and the agitator is placed in a different position (at the top) than with other manufacturers.
Extensive research is important for a fitting solution
Once Jongia Mixing Technology has received and discussed the customer’s request and has created a clear picture of the process, the research into the use of the Gas Inducing Mixer begins. Then, calculations are made based upon the customer’s objective, Jongia Mixing Technology’s knowledge and experience and the required engineering. This then results in a design and a gross estimate which is presented to the customer. The solution offered is always unique, custom-made and user-friendly.
The Gas Inducing Mixer is currently mainly used by customers in the food industry who work with fat hardening, fat oil hardening and edible oils. Their aim is to modify oil fat, to make margarine for example. The oil used for this purpose is too soft and needs to be hardened. By recirculating the substance in the mixing process, in this case hydrogen, the ‘double bonds’ in the oil are converted to ‘single bonds’, which hardens the oil. To implement this modification, one of the methods is to use a compressor to create an external recirculation of the gas. The gas is introduced into the reactor from below, so that the gas will spread everywhere. However, Jongia Mixing Technology advises a mixing system for gas-liquid reactors that creates gas circulation form the headspace of the reactor through the hollow stirring shaft into the liquid, without an additional gas compressor. This means, also without a gas ring or a sparger! This results in excellent mass transfer. Due to the high mass transfer rates, only low concentrations of catalysts are needed in the reactor. This contributes to a shorter and thus more efficient mixing time. The Gas Inducing Mixer creates this precise process of transporting the gas to where it can react with the liquid. This makes that Jongia Mixing Technology can ensure the quality of the products.
