Mixing Matters: Advancing Sustainability in Mixing Processes

Mixing is an Art and a Science. All too often, those companies which do not understand the “Art” of mixing will simply overpower a mixer in the hopes of covering the inability to control mixing through Torque. Exploiting this mechanical advantage can offer great energy savings, as well asgreatly improve the mixing and process control. In this article, we discuss the energy savings. Mixing is a common operation in fields such as chemical processing, food production, pharmaceuticals, and more. Sustainable mixing aims to reduce the environmental impact of these processes while maintaining or improving efficiency and product quality.  Here are some key points and strategies related to sustainable mixing: Energy Efficiency: Energy-efficient mixing involves optimizing the design and operation of mixing

What is fermentation? Learn more with cutting-edge mixing solutions

What is Fermentation?Fermentation is a chemical process that occurs in the absence of oxygen and involves the conversion of organic compounds into simpler compounds, typically with the production of energy. It is an ancient technique used by humans for thousands of years to preserve food, create alcoholic beverages, and even produce certain chemicals and pharmaceuticals. Here are some important terms used in fermentation, along with their definitions, Microorganisms: Microorganisms are microscopic living organisms, such as yeast and bacteria, that play a crucial role in fermentation. Yeast: Yeast is a type of fungus that is commonly used in fermentation processes, especially in the production of alcoholic beverages and bread.  Bacteria: Bacteria are single-celled microorganisms that can also perform fermentation. Different species of bacteria can produce various end products,

Biogas Production

Maximizing Biogas Production : Efficient Mixing

The quest for sustainable and renewable energy sources has surged in recent years, propelling biogas into the spotlight as a promising solution to the challenges posed by traditional fossil fuels. Composed mainly of methane and carbon dioxide, biogas is derived from the anaerobic digestion of organic waste, making it an environmentally friendly fuel with diverse applications in electricity generation, heating, and transportation. However, to unlock its full potential, the implementation of proper mixing techniques is crucial. This article delves into the significance of mixing in biogas production, elucidates its benefits, and provides insights into effective mixing strategies.     Why Mixing Matters:  Mixing plays a pivotal role in the anaerobic digestion process, where microorganisms break down organic waste in the

Gold Leach, CIP and CIL – Mixing Solutions

Gold mining industry relies heavily on industrial mixers in the Gold Leach, CIP (carbon in pulp), and CIL (carbon in leach) processes. These processes involve extracting gold from ore by dissolving it in a solution containing cyanide and adsorbing it onto activated carbon. Mixers play a crucial role in these processes by facilitating the mixing and agitation of the slurry in the tanks. Here, we will explore the importance of industrial mixers in gold leaching and recovery processes. Mixing and Agitation in Gold Leaching Gold leaching is the process of extracting gold from ore using a cyanide solution. In this process, the slurry of ground ore and cyanide solution is mixed and agitated in tanks. Air is also sparged into

MBBR Mixing in Wastewater Treatment Applications

Today, moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) processes are widespread throughout the wastewater treatment industry. These processes rely on media with a high surface area to carry biofilm and achieve the same results as conventional bioreactors with reduced space requirements. MBBR mixing ensures that the media and influent are distributed uniformly throughout the reactor. Wastewater treatment facilities can adapt MBBRs to fulfill many process requirements. They can replace activated sludge processes and are also an attractive option for biological nitrogen removal. Many wastewater treatment facilities use a series of MBBRs with both anaerobic and aerobic steps. MBBR mixing must address several challenges and constraints to ensure process effectiveness and efficiency while also offering energy savings compared to dispersed air mixing. Key

How Agitators Play a Key Role in Anaerobic Digesters

Anaerobic digesters are a versatile wastewater treatment technology that sees wide use in agricultural, municipal, and other applications. Bacteria break down incoming waste in the absence of oxygen, a process that produces biogas (a mixture of methane and carbon dioxide) and digestate (a nutrient-rich fertilizer). Because anaerobic digestion relies on sensitive bacteria, significant design consideration must be dedicated to keeping process parameters just right. Agitation Improves Anaerobic Digestion on Multiple Fronts Anaerobic digesters rely on a delicate balance of pH and temperature to operate effectively. The most widely used designs are continuously stirred tank reactors (CSTRs), with the assumption that these parameters will be uniform throughout the tank. A CSTR operates on the principle that incoming feedstocks are rapidly homogenized
