Sludge Mixer

In the past, several industries have typically avoided the use of static mixers due to their tendency to plug or foul. In response to this problem, Koflo Corporation has developed a revolutionary static mixer that is void of pinch points or intersecting elements. The Series 365 sludge mixer is able to handle even the most fibrous slurries without plugging. Each mixer contains a series of alternating right and left hand elements, which blend the product stream with counter rotating vortices.

One of the primary uses of the Koflo sludge mixer is for sludge conditioning. Flocculants injected prior to the mixer are thoroughly blended with the waste stream prior to a filter press or other dewatering equipment. Substantial cost savings are realized when activated polymer is thoroughly blended with the waste stream. These savings can be up to 40% depending on the process.

Standard materials of construction for the Series 365 sludge mixer are PVC, carbon steel, and stainless steel. Other materials are available upon request. Sludge mixers are available with 150 lb. flanged ends or male NPT threads. Optional chemical injection ports can be supplied either flanged or threaded female NPT.
