The Triple Action Mixer includes 3 distinct types of mixing:
KOMAX mixers divide and re-divide the process stream with a series of elements set at right angles to each other. Each element doubles the number of previous divisions. Twenty elements produce over a million divisions and re-combinations.
Special cavities randomize the distribution of material by DIRECT STREAM IMPINGEMENT. This enhances and optimizes the two-by-two division process to make it truly effective.
Under turbulent flow, both sides of each KOMAX element produce elliptical vortices rotating in opposite directions. This eliminates the streaming or tunneling effects associated with early static mixer designs. In addition, an optimum degree of BACK-MIXING occurs as material is orbited in the vortex from the front to the back of an element before continuing downstream. This produces a substantial improvement in mixing efficiency.
