Industrial Mixer’s Types and Uses
An industrial mixer is a huge machine used for mixing various types of industrial materials such as construction materials, paint, dye, cosmetics, cement and pharmaceuticals. It is also widely used in sewage treatment plants, food and beverage industries.
Different Types of Industrial Mixers
Industrial mixers such as cement mixers are available in a number of varieties that include the agitator mixing, jet mixing, wave mixing, sonic probes, wave machines, sluicing mixing and so forth.
The most common form of industrial mixer is the agitator mixer. Other types of industrial mixers include the paddle, screw, vibration mixers, static, vertical turbine, planetary, ultrasonic and conical. Mixers with paddle shaped feet and fixed arms are commonly known as paddle mixers.
Ribbon mixer gets its name because it is ribbon shaped while planetary mixer has two mixing blades rotating around its individual shafts. Turbine mixer serves a wide variety of purposes. It operates at a reduced speed with the help of multi bladed impellers.
The agitator mixer is among the most widely used industrial mixers around the world. It is most commonly used in the liquid processing industries. Portability, cost efficiency and easy availability are the main advantages that warrant its widespread use for various purposes.
There are various types of agitator machines available in the markets today. Some of the most common and basic types of agitator industrial mixers includes the following.
In sewage treatment plants, proper liquid treatment must be exercised to protect the environment. Treating wastewater aims to produce an effluent that will do as little harm as possible when discharged to the surrounding environment to prevent pollution.
Sewage treatment generally involves three stages, called primary, secondary and tertiary treatment.
The treatment process uses industrial mixer to mix or blend liquids and chemicals to disturb the settled solids before sweeping and pulling them up to the liquid surface. It is removes nitrogen (nitrification) through the biological oxidation of nitrogen from ammonia to nitrate, followed by denitrification, the reduction of nitrate to nitrogen gas. Nitrogen gas is released to the atmosphere and thus removed from the water.
Since denitrification is the reduction of nitrate to dinitrogen (molecular nitrogen) gas, an electron donor is needed. This can be, depending on the waste water, organic matter (from feces), sulfide, or an added donor like methanol. The sludge in the anoxic or denitrification tanks must be mixed well by using industrial mixer in order to achieve the desired denitrification.
