Seals: Mechanical Seals, Packing Seals and Lip Seals Why Use Them On Industrial Agitators?

When it comes to designing mixers Dynamix knows that environmental and process considerations are just as important as the mechanical mixer design. That is why our Solutions approach considers so much more than just the mixer application. We can configure your mixer to seal according to your process, environment, and pressure requirements. Knowing which of these requirements is a priority and which technology is most cost effective is critical to your purchase. That is why Dynamix maintains its customized mixer design approach. You can define the seal you need as well as the manufacture, or we can help you make that decision. Mechanical Packing Double Lip Seal Cost / Performance The  challenges for seals are as follows: To lower operating

Why Dynamix Focuses on Torque When Designing Mixers

At Dynamix we focus on torque as opposed to horsepower when designing our mixers. Torque is a parameter which is preferable in mixing. By using larger diameter impellers and higher gear ratios, higher torque is produced, and more efficient mixing can be obtained. This can be done without using a high horsepower motor and high mixer speeds (RPM). What is torque and horsepower? Horsepower is equal to the RPM times Torque, divided by 5252. Therefore, lower RPM gives higher torque at the same power.   A simple way to think about torque versus horsepower, is to imagine a Semi Truck and a Formula 1 racing car.   These vehicles, the truck and car, are known to have the largest towing

Side Entry Mixer or Top Entry Mixer – Always Consider the Costs!

Side entry mixers and top entry mixers play an important role in a diverse number of industries such as mining and natural resources, food processing, agricultural chemicals, oil and gas, wastewater treatment, food manufacturing, pulp and paper, brewing and distilling, paints and coatings, inks and dyes… In every industry, engineers, consultants and operations managers need to carefully assess their unique requirements and environments, then look at the short- and long-term impact on everything from product quality and operating costs to the bottom line before committing to a mixer. For many decision-makers, side entry mixers have been the most visible option thanks in part to side-entry and submersible suppliers’ ongoing marketing efforts. While Dynamix provides a full range of side-entry mixers,

Industrial Mixer Reliability and Longevity – A Case Study

One of Dynamix’s business pillars is to produce quality products that are reliable and have longevity. We consistently see repeat customer orders for products that have been in service for 12-30 years, or more. One such customer has reordered an Industrial Agitator that has served them for over 15 years. This one came in for a rebuild in perfect working order.
