Dynamic mixers are indispensable equipment in many industrial processes where homogeneous mixing of liquids or powders is required. These mixers are the best option if you need to blend, emulsify, homogenize, and disperse material. Many industries are heavily dependent on dynamic mixers, such as pharmaceutical, food processing and chemical industries to ensure that products are of the highest quality. Dynamic mixers, also known as high-shear mixers, are designed to create a turbulent flow that produces a uniform mixture in a short amount of time. AxFlow offers dynamic mixers for a wide range of industries and applications, providing individual advice from industry-experienced process engineers and manufacturer-independent selection of the world's leading process technology.

How dynamic mixers work
Dynamic mixers are typically used to blend two or more fluids or powders together to create a homogenous mixture. The mixing process is accomplished using rotating impellers or blades, which generate turbulence and promote the intermingling of the ingredients.
Dynamic mixers can be designed in a variety of configurations depending on the specific application requirements. For example, some dynamic mixers use a single impeller while others use multiple impellers arranged in series or parallel to increase the mixing intensity. Additionally, mixers can be designed with different types of impellers, such as radial or axial flow impellers, to optimize the mixing performance for different types of fluids and powders.
The effectiveness of dynamic mixers in industrial processes is often measured by the mixing time and uniformity of the resulting mixture. By optimizing the mixer design and operation parameters, it is possible to achieve a high degree of mixing efficiency and consistency, which can lead to improved quality and reduced processing times.
Advantages of dynamic mixers
Dynamic mixers bring a host of advantages and benefits to industries that use them. Some of these advantages include:
Efficient mixing: Dynamic mixers use impellers or blades to generate turbulence and promote the intermingling of fluids or powders. The result of this technic is a more homogenous mixture and is often more efficient than mixers relying on gravity or pressure.
Flexibility: Dynamic mixers can be designed for a wide range of applications, from blending food ingredients, to mixing chemicals in a pharmaceutical laboratory. The mixer design can be customized to meet the specific requirements of the material being mixed, including viscosity, density and, temperature
Speed: Dynamic mixers can produce homogenous mixtures in a relatively short amount of time, reducing the process time and improving productivity.
Consistency: By optimizing the mixer design and operating parameters, dynamic mixers can produce a consistent mixture with uniform properties, ensuring that each batch of product meets the same quality standards.
Reduce waste: Dynamic mixers can help to minimize waste by ensuring that materials are fully blended, reducing the need for additional processing steps or equipment.
Energy efficient: Dynamic mixers can be designed to minimize energy consumption by optimizing the impeller design and operating parameters, reducing the amount of power required to achieve the desired mixing intensity.
Industries and applications that uses dynamic mixers
Dynamic mixers are essential tools in many industries where efficient and precise mixing is required. Some of the industries that uses dynamic mixers because of the significant advantages they provide include:
Food and beverage industry: Dynamic mixers are used extensively in the food and beverage industry to blend ingredients and create homogenous mixtures. From mixing dough and batter to blending beverages and sauces, dynamic mixers help ensuring consistency and uniformity in the final product.
Pharmaceutical industry: In the pharmaceutical industry, dynamic mixers are used to mix and blend powders, granules, and liquids to create medications and other pharmaceutical products. Dynamic mixers can also be used for dissolution testing, where they are used to agitate samples of drugs in solvent to evaluate their effectiveness.
Chemical industry: Dynamic mixers are used in the chemical industry for a wide range of applications, including the production of polymers, adhesives, and coatings. Dynamic mixers can also be used to blend different chemicals and compounds to create new products.
Water and wastewater treatment: Dynamic mixers are often used in water and wastewater treatment plants to mix chemicals and other additives into water to remove impurities and contaminants. Dynamic mixers can also be used to mix and blend sludge for further processing.
Oil and gas industry: In the oil and gas industry, dynamic mixers are used to blend drilling fluids and other chemicals used in drilling and completion operations. Dynamic mixers can also be used in refining processes to blend different grades of crude oil and other liquids.
Important considerations when selecting dynamic mixers
When selecting a dynamic mixer, there are several important factors to consider. Firstly, the viscosity of the product being mixed should be taken into account. The higher the viscosity the more powerful the mixer needs to be. Secondly, the size of the mixer should be considered. The mixer should be appropriately sized for the volume of product being mixed. Thirdly, the type of impeller or blade should be chosen based on the product being mixed. Different types of impellers are better suited to different types of mixing applications. Finally, the material used to construct the mixer should be chosen based on the product being mixed. For example, if the product is corrosive, the mixer should be made of materials that are resistant to corrosion.
