Set the static mixer correctly to improve mixing efficiency
Static mixers are very important machines in industrial production. To make them perform well, you need to set the parameters correctly. In this article, we summarize the things that need to be paid attention to when setting static mixer parameters. Let's take a concrete look at it.
(1) Flow pattern selection
1. There are many types of mixture materials in static mixers. Naturally, liquids are also included. For some liquids with medium and high viscosity, and the overall chemical reaction is slow, the flow rate can be selected from 0.1 to 0.3 m/s. Within the scope of the device, the operation efficiency of the device can be ensured to the utmost extent.
2. If the medium, low viscosity liquid is extracted, mixed, and liquid-dispensed, the flow rate of the mixer can be controlled within the range of 0.3 to 0.8 m/s. Since the viscosity of the liquid is small, it is necessary to increase the flow rate, otherwise it is difficult to mix the liquid.
3. There is also a mixing of low-viscosity liquids. In general, the mixing of such liquids is carried out in an emulsification reaction, a pre-reaction, and a rapid reaction. In order to ensure the mixing efficiency of the liquid, the flow rate must be increased. In the case, the flow is stabilized at about 10 m/s.
(2) Reaction time
After the flow rate of the device is completed, the reaction time of the device needs to be determined. There are many factors to consider when setting the reaction time. It is necessary to make a specific choice based on the type of reaction, the physical and chemical properties of the material, and the operating environment of the equipment.
When setting the reaction time, remember not to reduce the reaction time in order to improve the operating efficiency of the equipment, which will be counterproductive, so that the mixing effect is not obvious.
(3) Temperature selection
The temperature of the equipment during the reaction also needs to be closely watched, because the activity of the mixture has a large difference at different temperatures, and the mixing effect will be quite different. Therefore, it is necessary to pay close attention to the selection of the mixing temperature, and it is necessary to set the specific conditions of the mixture to achieve the best mixing effect.
The precautions for the static mixer parameter setting have been described in detail in the above content. Because the setting of the parameters is correct or not, it directly affects the mixing effect, so we need to pay close attention.
