Compared to dry-mounted mixers, submersiblesolutions offer greater flexibility and considerablesavings in energy consumption for a wide range ofmixing applications, such as solids suspension, bottomerosion, blending, circulation or destratification.
Better mixing andreduced power consumption
A submersible mixer offersmore flexibility in positioningand orientation.
How does mixing work?
All mixing applications require varying degrees ofboth small-scale turbulence and bulk flow. With agood bulk flow, the contents of the entire tank areput in motion so that all parts are involved in themixing. Most mixing applications generate abundantturbulence and it is the strength of the bulk flowthat controls the efficiency of the mixing. Theperformance of a submersible mixer is measured bythe thrust (N) that it produces. So the strength of thebulk flow is in turn dependent on the total amountof installed thrust.
Submersible mixers meanmore efficient bulk flow
Submersible mixers allow a great deal of flexibility inpositioning and orientation, unlike their dry-mountedcounterparts. The mixer jet can be positioned todevelop over a long distance and adapted to theshape of the tank. This ensures the creation of amaximum level of bulk flow. The result: moreefficient mixing and lower power consumption.
Allowing the mixer jet todevelop leads to a good bulk flow and efficientmixing of the entire tank.
