Statflo™ inline mixers are used to blend two or more liquids into a homogeneous mixture, or to inject a metered liquid into a continuous process stream. Applications include: water treatment (drinking water), wastewater treatment (processing out of waste and pollutants), food processing (manufacturing of yogurt, ice cream, beverages), chemical processing, oil refining and mining/ore extraction.

Statflo™ mixers are a series of geometric mixing elements fixed within a pipe (tube), which use the energy of the flow stream to create mixing between two or more fluids. Most commonly, the fluids are liquid; however, static mixers are used to mix gas streams, disperse gas into liquid or disperse immiscible liquids. The device consists of mixer elements contained in a cylindrical (tube) or squared housing. These can vary from 6 mm to 6 meters diameter. Static mixer elements consist of a series of baffles that are made from stainless steel alloys or a variety of plastics. Typical materials of construction for the static mixer components include Stainless Steel, polypropylene, Teflon, Kynar and Polyacetal.
The overall system design incorporates a method for delivering two streams of liquids into the static mixer. As the streams move through the mixer, the non-moving elements continuously blend the materials. Complete mixing is dependent on many variables including the fluid properties, tube inner diameter, the number of elements and their design. Statflo™ in-line agitator mixers are supremely efficient and rapid in operation and are capable of reducing mixing times by up to 90%. The action of the in-line mixer can be modified with the use of rapidly interchangeable work heads. This enables any machine to mix, emulsify, homogenize, solubilize, suspend, disperse and disintegrate solids.
Whether your application involves low viscosity fluids, high viscosity fluids, fibrous materials, or just the need for a quick flash blend, we have a Statflo™ mixer design available to optimize your blending process.
