Company: Alfa Laval, Lund, Sweden
Equipment Snapshot: Alfa Laval says its Rotary Jet Mixer handles liquid and powder mixing, gas dispersion and clean-in-place (CIP), while reducing time, energy and costs. The unit combines high blending precision with minimized mixing times and up to a 50 percent reduction in energy requirements. It can be used in tanks between 100 and 800,000 liters in size. Equipped with two or four nozzles, the Rotary Jet Mixer is positioned below the liquid level in a tank. Liquid is withdrawn from the tank outlet by a pump and circulated via an external loop to the mixer, which helps reduce operating expenses, while achieving fast and efficient mixing. 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.
