Mixing 101: The Importance of Specific Gravity

What is Specific Gravity? And why do we ask for it… Next to viscosity, specific gravity is a separate but equally important factor in optimizing a mixer. Without factoring this measurement into your mixer design, your results would not reach product specification. What is Specific Gravity? The term “Specific Gravity” (SG) is used to define the weight or density of a liquid as compared to the density of an equal volume of water at a specified temperature. The temperature used for measurement is usually 39.2oF (4oC), because this temperature allows water to assume its maximum density. In the metric system, water has a density of 1 gram/ml, so density and SG are numerically equal. If the liquid you are comparing

Mixing 101: 4 Factors for Configuring Your Fluid Mixer

Mixing 101: 4 Factors for Configuring Your Fluid Mixer Considering Mixer Configuration If you’re in an industry that includes fluid mixing in its processes, you probably know that finding the right fluid mixer for your needs is critical to maintaining quality control, reducing costs, and optimizing efficiency. The key here is to engineer a fluid mixer that addresses the specific needs of your process. When configuring a mixer for your process, your mixing engineer should consider the following 4 factors: Factor #1 – Tank Type & Volume This determines the amount of fluid your tank can hold. This is important because it will determine the size and position of the fluid mixer and its mounting. Factor #2 – Viscosity This

Mixing 101: 4 Impeller Types & Their Applications

Mixing 101: 4 Impeller Types & Their Applications The Importance of Impeller Selection We first mentioned impellers in our blog discussing 4 factors for configuring your mixer. In this post, we will look more closely at impeller types and their applications. The impeller is the component of a mixer that does the actual mixing and produces the results. That’s because when it rotates, it creates fluid flow and shear patterns. While there are many types of impellers, there are 4 main types we use when engineering mixers. The 4 Main Impeller Types 1. Airfoil Generally most efficient because it produces the maximum pumping with the lowest shear. Standard Dynaflow™ High Solidity Dynaflow™ for Gas Dispersion 2. Pitch Blade Ideal for
