Mixing Units - these are broadly defined mixing devices consisting of a mixing unit (an agitator + a lid) installed on the same frame as a lifting system and/or wheels. The coupled bin capacity bracket: 60-1000 l (due to the work and safety regulations). Mixing units are compatible with conical or cylindrical bins.
Mixing Unit produces instant hot water from a steady supply steam and cold water. Users can easily regulate the temperature by turning the unit’s steam and cold water valves.
Single mixing unit and mixer arrays having various designs was characterized. A known test reaction for mixing quality had to be optimized, since a much higher sensitivity as for the characterization of macroscopic mixers was needed.
This adapted test reaction allowed not only the characterization of the mixing quality but also analysis of the homogeneity of the flow distribution between parallely aligned mixing units. A comparison of the mixing quality to those of macroscopic reference systems (like mixing in stirred and unstirred vessels as well as to laminar and turbulent mixing-tees) is presented. The mixing quality−volume flow dependence revealed a complex behavior, the hydrodynamic origin of which has been analyzed.
