Homogeneous plastic melt – the key to improved product quality!
Promix static mixers – highly efficient, low maintenance, energy and space saving
How does Static Mixing work
Static mixing is the mixing of liquids without moving parts. A static mixer uses tubular internals of intersecting bars to achieve the desired mixing and dispersion effect as the melt flows through the motionless mixing elements.
Promix static mixer solutions are designed to balance melt homogeneity and temperature gradients very effectively at low shear stress and minimal pressure drop. Further positive aspects are short installation length and maintenance-free operation.
Static mixer – the working principle
Static mixing technology
You can rely on a team of professionals with a solid background in plastics processing and more than 40 years of experience in mixing technology. The combination of the latest techniques and tools for flow simulation, an in-house pilot plant and many years of production experience form the cornerstone of Promix static mixer solutions.
Unique static mixer geometry for outstanding results
Some 40 years ago, Sulzer pioneered the field of static mixers and marketed its unique mixer concept under the brand name Sulzer Mixer SMX. Over the years, the design of the Sulzer SMX mixer has been continuously modified and improved. Today, special geometries and designs for the plastics industry are offered exclusively by Promix Solutions, the new owner of Sulzer's static mixer business for plastics processing.
Sulzer Mixer SMX plus, license for Plastics Processing
Promix Solutions holds a license for the unique Sulzer mixer for plastics processing, type SMX plus. The structure of the Sulzer SMX plus mixer provides excellent mixing performance with the lowest possible pressure drop. Promix has further optimized the mixer structure for plastics processing. The result is the new generation of the SMB plus melt blender. Its virtually unbreakable design with very effective mixing performance and low pressure drop sets a new standard for melt blenders in extrusion processes.
