Mixing is a critical unit process of all manufacturing plants and it is essential to investigate all the variables that will determine the appropriate mixer for each application. Mixing technology is available from Allmix .
A mixer is required to perform one or more of five major duties. These duties define mixing applications and typically are:
- Suspension of solids
- Dispersion (liquid/liquid and liquid/solid)
- Heat transfer
This information combined with the vessel geometry then determines the mechanical design of a mixer. Being such a critical part of the production process unit process consultants believe in a robust design to eliminate downtime and minimise maintenance.
Unit process consulting is able to offer the design, manufacture and supply of a range of mixing equipment to the industry. The range of mixers includes sizes from pilot plant scale to production vessels, from liquids with low viscosities to applications involving pastes and from 0.25 kW to 100 kW (and above in certain applications). These mixers are custom designed to suit different requirements.
Along with these services for the supply of mixers unit process consulting is also able to assist with the evaluation and upgrading of existing equipment and trouble shooting with problem installations.
