Plastic Disposable 2k Static Mixers

Options of Plastic Static Mixers

StaMixCo fabricates a wide variety of High Performance & Medium Performance static mixing elements in plastic construction. Sizes range from 1.7 mm (0.067”) diameter to many feet in diameter. Materials of construction include Polypropylene, PVC, Kynar, Nylon and PTFE Teflon®. All of the mixing elements available in plastic are also available in metal construction. Many of the plastic mixing elements are standard stock items with shipment next day after purchase order.

The StaMixCo website section titled “2-Component Resin Static Mixers” describes many plastic mixing elements with housings that are designed for use as disposable mixers in the resin processing industry. These identical plastic static mixers are very often used in other industry segments and applications. This website page titled “Plastic Static Mixers” describes the general categories of plastic static mixers that we fabricate which can be used in virtually any fluid processing industry and application such as for general chemical processing, pharmaceutical, food, water & waste water treatment, 2-Component resin processing, etc. Below is an overview of the High Performance and Medium Performance static mixers we fabricate in plastic construction where details are to be found in the below referenced literature.

High Performance Plastic Static Mixing Elements

The high performance mixing elements have the characteristic feature of Crossing Bars (Type GX) or Crossing Corrugated Plates (Type GV) which create a high degree of mixing in a short length as shown in Figure #1:

Figure #1: High Performance Type GX mixing elements create a homogeneous mixing in a short length.

Figure #5: The GXF plastic mixing elements are available with OD=11.7 mm (0.46”) X ID=10 mm (0.394”) in Polypropylene construction. The mixing elements are normally inserted into plastic and stainless steel tubing.

Type GXL Plastic Mixing Elements (High Performance)

Figure #6:   The GXL plastic mixing elements

Figure #6: The GXL plastic mixing elements are available in diameters larger than 3” in PVC and Polypropylene construction. The mixing elements are normally inserted into PVC, FRP and stainless steel pipe. Shown in photograph is a 10” Diameter X 66” Long unit in PVC construction with 2-mixing elements and gas pull-down plate on the left feed side of the mixer to assure unreacted oxygen is contacted with the fracking water to be treated.

Type GV Plastic Mixing Elements (High Performance)

Figure #7:   The GV plastic mixing elements

Figure #7: The GV plastic mixing elements are available in diameters larger than 3” in Polypropylene, Kynar and PTFE Teflon® construction. The mixing elements are normally inserted into PVC, FRP and PTFE lined pipe. Shown in photograph is a 12” Diameter X 36” Long polypropylene static mixing element assembly with homogeneity spacer in the center and mounted in an FRP flanged housing.

Medium Performance Plastic Static Mixing Elements

The medium performance helical mixing elements have the characteristic feature of an alternating left-right twisted bowtie helical shape which requires a long length to create a reasonable degree of mixing as shown in Figure #8:

Figure #8: Medium Performance Type HT Helical static mixing elements create a reasonable quality mix in a long length at low pressure drop.

Type HT Helical Mixing Elements (Medium Performance static mixer)

Figure #9:   Model HT-40 Helical static mixing element

Figure #9: Model HT-40 Helical static mixing element assemblies are available in sizes as small as 1.7 mm (0.067) to 4” diameter in Acetal, Polypropylene, Kynar and PTFE Teflon® construction. They are available as mixing element assemblies only for installation into standard plastic and metal housings or custom housings supplied by StaMixCo or the customer. Most sizes are standard stock items with shipment next day after purchase order.
