When to apply the Jet mixer
When solids need to be added to liquids before they reach the tank or when one kind of solid needs to be divided over multiple tanks, the Jet mixer is the ideal solution. If a customer wants to dissolve solids in fluids, Jongia Mixing Technology will examine the best way to do this. Frequently asked questions are: Which solids are involved? Is the system suitable for this mixing process? And which pump is needed? However, when it comes to the Jet mixer, another question arises: What are the facilities behind the Jet mixer? An advantage of the Jet mixer is that it is a static device with a venturi chamber in which the solids are sucked in. However, this does lower the pressure right after the venturi chamber. Therefore, it is necessary to have appropriate piping behind the venturi chamber. The pressure coming from the venturi chamber needs to be greater than the resistance encountered by the fluids on its way to the tank. A centrifugal pump is therefore necessary to boost the Jet mixer in its function.
Test units are of great value
How solids react when mixed with certain fluids, is not always known. Additionally, there are many different kinds of solids in even more gradations and grain sizes. Jongia Mixing Technology’s test units are therefore very important and useful for finding the perfect solution. During a test, critical aspects in the process are identified. For instance, the flow of the solid or the viscosity of the product. If necessary, Jongia Mixing Technology will recommend to modify the installation.
USP’s of the Jet mixer
A big advantage of the Jet mixer is that it makes the mixing process ergonomically ideal for the user, because the solids can be poured in at ground level. The user doesn’t have to work at heights to dispense the solid via, for example, a bigbagsystem on top of the tank. In addition, the Jet mixer makes it easy to keep wet and dry substances separated and it decreases dust formation. Because the solid is not poured directly into the tank, the customer can always choose a place where it’s most convenient, depending on where the Jet mixer is positioned. Moreover, the machine requires little maintenance.
