The Sulzer CompaX static mixer consists of a highly efficient mixing device with an integrated dosing point. The additive is fed into the zone where there is a strong turbulent flow. Fluids, additives, and gases are reliably and effectively mixed over a very short distance.
For larger pipe diameters, you can admix up to 6 additives using only one mixing element.
The pressure drop of a Sulzer CompaX mixer is approx. 8 times lower compared to orifice-type static mixers. For low-viscous fluids, it is typically 10 – 100 mbar. This results in significant savings on pump energy, which pays off economically as well as ecologically. You will not experience any clogging problems with this mixer thanks to the open-wing geometry and the additive dosing location.
- Efficient mixing (CoV</= 0.05)
- Lowest possible pressure drop
- Short installation length: only approx. 0.3 pipe diameters
- Optimized dosing point for additive mixing, no injection lances required
- No clogging
- Robust construction
- Low installation cost, easy to fit
- Excellent price/performance ratio
The Sulzer CompaX static mixer can deal with mixing ratios from 1:5 up to more than 1:10 000. Typical applications can be found in the chemical industry as well as in water or wastewater treatment. In this industry, the CompaX mixer can be used, for example, to admix flocculation agents or for pH adjustment.
