Inline Mixers Two-Stage Solid-Liquid Mixing in Batch Operations
Ika's CMX 2000 is an inline mixer for fast, homogeneous incorporation of powders into liquids. The circulation of the liquid creates a strong vacuum in the machine, which sucks in the solid material. Thus, even powders that are difficult to wet can be incorporated lump-free into a liquid phase.
The two-stage design with a pumping and dispersing stage ensures stable functionality even at high viscosities. Due to the highly efficient mode of operation of the CMX, production time and raw material usage can be saved, states the company.
The optimum dispersion quality can be achieved with specific tools. The inline mixer is usually supplied as a system with solids dosing and a mixing vessel. Depending on the application and customer requirements, the solids feed can be designed as a big bag system, via a hopper, by means of a sack chute or a suction lance directly sucking from the sack.
Different installation and process requirements are not a problem: the inline mixer can be installed horizontally or vertically and has a low installation height. The closed system prevents dust and solvent emissions, concludes the firm.
