Tank Mixer

Introduction of Tank Mixer

Tank mixer is a mechanical device designed for effective blending and homogenization of fluids within large storage tanks. These mixers generally consist of a sturdy drive system connected to an impeller or agitator functioning inside the tank. They guarantee thorough mixing of liquids, suspensions, and slurries by initiating material movement, thus enhancing reactions, averting sedimentation, and preserving product uniformity.

At SeFluid, we excel in crafting top-notch tank mixers tailored to a broad spectrum of process demands. Our mixers distinguish themselves through their outstanding durability, energy efficiency, and precise engineering. We focus on designing models that are user-friendly for maintenance and cleaning, while being fully customizable to accommodate various liquid viscosities and tank sizes.

We produce our tank mixers using corrosion-resistant materials and strictly follow rigorous international safety norms such as ATEX and GMP, ensuring safe and reliable operation even under hazardous conditions. Our commitment to innovation leads us to integrate advanced control systems into our tank mixers, allowing for exact speed adjustment and optimum process outcomes. This unique combination of performance, dependability, and flexibility sets our tank mixers apart as a preferred choice for clients demanding the highest quality.

Working Principle of Tank Mixer

The working principle of a tank mixer involves a systematic approach to effectively blend and homogenize the contents within a storage tank. The core components include a motor-driven mechanism and a mixing element, typically an impeller or agitator, submerged in the tank’s liquid content.

When operational, the motor supplies power to rotate the impeller or agitator at a predetermined speed. The impeller’s design determines the flow pattern it creates within the tank. For instance, axial flow impellers induce a horizontal flow pattern, radial flow impellers create a vertical circulation, and pitched blade turbines provide a more turbulent and omnidirectional mixing action.

The rotating impeller generates a series of vortices and currents which force the liquid to move throughout the tank volume. This continuous motion ensures that any settled solids are suspended and mixed evenly into the liquid. In cases where multiple phases are present (e.g., solid particles in a liquid suspension), the mixer helps prevent settling by keeping the mixture homogeneous.

In essence, tank mixers work by converting the mechanical energy from the motor into fluid motion, promoting efficient blending and reaction kinetics, and maintaining product consistency over time. Depending on the application, they can be adjusted to achieve gentle mixing or powerful agitation to break down lumps or disperse substances thoroughly.

Types of Tank Mixer

Tank mixers come in various types to address different mixing requirements across a wide range of industries. Here are some common types:

  1. Propeller Mixers: These use a propeller-style impeller to create a rotational flow pattern, suitable for low to medium viscosity fluids. Propeller mixers can generate either laminar or turbulent flows depending on the pitch and diameter of the blades.
  2. Paddle Mixers: Ideal for viscous products and dry bulk solids, paddle mixers use flat, broad blades to push and fold the materials. They are often used for blending powders, granules, or pastes.
  3. Agitators: Agitators have several types of impellers, including turbine, anchor, helical ribbon, or pitched blade turbine. Turbine agitators generate high shear forces and are used for rapid blending, while anchor agitators create slow-moving, vertical currents ideal for suspending solids in liquids.
  4. Static Mixers: Unlike dynamic mixers, static mixers don’t rely on moving parts. Instead, they use a sequence of stationary elements within the tank to split, redirect, and recombine the flow streams for thorough mixing.
  5. Jet Mixers: These mixers utilize high-velocity fluid jets to induce mixing. By injecting pressurized liquid into the tank, they create intense turbulence and promote rapid blending.
  6. Magnetic Stirrers: Mainly used in laboratory settings, these mixers have a magnetic field generated outside the tank that rotates a magnetic stir bar inside, stirring the liquid contents.

  7. Emulsifying Mixers: Specialized mixers designed for emulsions or dispersions feature high-shear mixing heads that can break down droplets or particles to extremely small sizes.
Each type of tank mixer is engineered to optimize specific mixing tasks, taking into account factors such as tank size, fluid properties, desired mixing intensity, and the nature of the process itself.
