Chemineer’s Energy-saving Top Entry Sludge Mixer

Posted: Monday 24th May 2010

Research and development into Sludge Rheology by Chemineer has demonstrated how Top Entry Mixers require a significantly lower power-per-unit volume than other options.

Utilising newly designed software, which has the ability to model up complex process problems such as Non-Newtonian fluids, Chemineer is now able to accurately predict how fluid motion is affected by the sludge rheology.

This enhanced process knowledge not only makes the sludge operation more efficient by preventing dead areas being left in the tank, but also takes the risk out of the design and saves on costly post-commissioning corrective works.

Chemineer can now detect a reduction in flow where the viscosity of a shear thinning liquid varies as it moves away from a mixing impeller. The company’s specially developed Maestro software also benefits mixing applications when a minimum yield stress has to be applied to a fluid, which greatly affects the flow pattern and generally reduces the size of the active flow volume.
