Alfa Laval Vortex Mixmate®

Applications

The Alfa Laval Vortex Mixmate is a high quality harsh chemical mixing barrel that is built to withstand tough industrial applications. It is designed for safe, rapid, homogeneous mixing and dispensing of small batches of hazardous liquids. Its most common use is in oil and gas drilling fluid applications for the purpose of mixing dry caustic soda powder into small batches of solution and feeding it into the drilling fluid to regulate the drilling fluid pH level. Caustic soda solution mixing is a highly exothermic heat generating reaction that results in hot, corrosive liquid that can easily burn skin and eyes. The Mixmate allows easy, proper mixing and dispensing of caustic solution with no risk of physical exposure to personnel.

Benefits

  • Simple robust design
  • High-quality construction
  • Low maintenance
  • Safe, effective mixing of harsh chemicals
  • Easy dispensing of mixed solutions
  • Easily integrated with the Alfa Laval Vortex Shear-Mixer

Standard Design

The Alfa Laval Vortex Mixmate consists of a 379 L (100 gallon) stainless steel drum with work table and a protection baffle designed to eliminate the risk of liquid splash-back during mixing. It features a stainless steel, lockable, hinged safety cover with a viewing window. The unit has 38mm (1.5”) water inlet and solution discharge outlets equipped with stainless steel ball valves, a 76 mm (3”) overflow port, a stainless steel turbine impeller and shaft powered by a four horsepower air motor, and a stainless steel skid base.

Working Principle

The Mixmate is first filled with fresh water. The 4 horsepower air motor is turned on to agitate the water. The cover is opened and caustic powder or pellets are gradually added into the Mixmate, where they are aggressively mixed into a concentrated solution by the stainless steel impeller. The thermal gauge indicates when the reaction temperature has leveled off and the solution is fully mixed. The solution can then be easily dispensed from the base of the unit and into the drilling mud by opening a ball valve. This allows the solution to either gravity feed into a vessel or pit, or be vacuumed out and mixed directly into a fluid stream by an Alfa Laval Vortex Shear-Mixer.

Technical Data

  • Maximum caustic powder load: 90.7 kg (200 lbs)
  • Maximum liquid capacity:  378.5 L (100 gallons ) 
  • Operating air pressure: 6.9 Bar (100 PSI)
  • Weight: 277 kg (610 lbs)

Alfa Laval Vortex Shear-Mixer Basic-  Advanced Slurry Mixing Eductor

Applications

The Alfa Laval Vortex Shear-Mixer is a high-performance venturi slurry eductor uniquely designed to operate in demanding slurry mixing jobs. Handling high flow rate requirements, high solids content, and difficult to mix additives are major criteria for meeting demanding slurry mixing conditions in applications such as oil and gas drilling fluid mixing, construction material production, chemical production, mining, liquid sugar mixing, brine mixing, cosmetics, paint pigment mixing, metal processing, and plastic production.

Standard Design

Much like traditional slurry eductors, The Alfa Laval Vortex Shear-Mixer has no motorized or rotating components. It relies on low pressure vacuum and dynamic, hydraulic shear to easily mix additives into fluid. It outperforms traditional venturi eductors; providing higher additive loading rates and more complete additive mixing. However, unlike traditional venturi eductors, it is exceedingly resistant to plugging and downtime. The Alfa Laval Vortex Shear Mixer Basic is offered in four standard sizes: 2” (51mm,) 3” (76mm,) 4” (102mm,) and 6” (152mm.) The 4” and 6” Shear-Mixers are available in dual suction port options for added versatility and connection to secondary additive feed devices or accessories, such as bulk bag hoppers or bulk surge tanks. The Shear-Mixer

consists of a housing body with special Lobestar Mixing Nozzle® and venturi/diffuser tube inserts. 3”, 4”, and 6” models can be outfitted with the Radial Premixer “pre-wetting” and wash down accessory and all Shear-Mixers can be equipped with an optional hopper, V-Slide® bulk flow promoter, bulk bag station, or dustless surge tank accessory. The standard connection style for all basic 3”, 4”, and 6” Shear-Mixers is grooved end pipe couplings. Basic 2” Shear- Mixers have male pipe threaded connections. There are multiple basic Shear-Mixer models which can accommodate many different applications, but if a standard model does not suit the application, a custom engineered Shear-Mixer can be designed to meet specific application demands.

Working Principle

Fluid is pumped at a high rate into the inlet of the Shear-Mixer where pressure builds behind the Lobestar Mixing Nozzle insert. The fluid’s velocity spikes as it passes through the nozzle, and the resulting pressure drop creates a near perfect vacuum for maximum additive loading. The Lobestar Mixing Nozzle produces a unique jet stream that has a dual impact. First, it dynamically shears fluid, rapidly hydrating and uniformly dispersing additives. Secondly, it promotes a highly- energized fluid boundary layer, which when combined with the effect of the Shear-Mixer's specialized venturi/diffuser tube, minimizes the impact of pressure loss in the downstream piping and increases the distance and elevation which the mixed slurry can be delivered through the discharge piping. Generally, the Shear-Mixer can be utilized in any application where the motive fluid can be handled by a centrifugal pump.

Alfa Laval Vortex Shear-Mixer BBS-  Advanced slurry mixing system for bulk material

Applications

The Alfa Laval Vortex Shear-Mixer is a high-performance venturi slurry eductor uniquely designed to operate in demanding slurry mixing jobs. Handling high flow rate requirements, high solids content, and difficult to mix additives are major criteria for meeting demanding slurry mixing conditions in applications such as oil and gas drilling fluid mixing, construction material production, chemical production, mining, liquid sugar mixing, brine mixing, cosmetics, paint pigment mixing, metal processing, and plastic production.

It relies on low pressure vacuum and dynamic, hydraulic shear to easily mix additives into fluid. It outperforms traditional venturi eductors; providing higher additive loading rates and more complete additive mixing. However, unlike traditional venturi eductors, it is exceedingly resistant to plugging and downtime. The Alfa Laval Vortex Shear-Mixer BBS is a 6” (152mm) Shear-Mixer connected to a 45 cubic ft stainless steel bulk bag hopper via the Vortex V-Slide® bulk flow promoter. Models SM6222 and SM6223 each include a dual suction port Shear-Mixer with Radial Premixer “pre-wetting”/ wash down accessory, and these models are recommended for applications where both bulk material mixing and small sack material mixing by hand may be required. Model SM6121 is a single suction Shear-Mixer that has no Radial Premixer and is recommended for applications where mixing will be conducted strictly from bulk bags. The Shear-Mixer consists of a stainless steel body, Lobestar Mixing Nozzle® insert, and venturi/diffuser tube insert mounted on a stainless steel base plate. Its primary suction port is connected directly to the bulk bag hopper via a butterfly valve and the V-Slide bulk flow promoter. The secondary suction ports on models SM6222 and SM6223 are connected to a frame mounted, stainless steel hopper table with butterfly valve and Radial Premixer accessory. The standard connection style of the Shear-Mixer BBS is 6” grooved end pipe couplings. The standard range of Alfa Laval Vortex Shear-Mixer BBS can accommodate many different applications, but if necessary, a custom engineered system can be designed to meet specific demands.

Working Principle

Fluid is pumped at a high rate into the inlet of the Shear-Mixer where pressure builds behind the Lobestar Mixing Nozzle insert. The fluid’s velocity spikes as it passes through the nozzle, and the resulting pressure drop creates a near perfect vacuum for maximum additive loading. The Lobestar Mixing Nozzle produces a unique jet stream that has a dual impact. First, it dynamically shears fluid, rapidly hydrating and uniformly dispersing additives. Secondly, it promotes a highly- energized fluid boundary layer, which when combined with the effect of the Shear-Mixer's specialized venturi/diffuser tube, minimizes the impact of pressure loss in the downstream piping and increases the distance and elevation which the mixed slurry can be delivered through the discharge piping. Generally, the Shear-Mixer can be utilized in any application where the motive fluid can be handled by a centrifugal pump.

The Radial Premixer accessory “pre-wets” chemical additive particles, preventing them from forming clumps, fish eyes, or microgels in the mixed slurry. The Radial Premixer wash down effect also helps to inhibit foaming in slurries by partially flooding the Shear-Mixer suction with motive fluid and preventing entrainment of free air into the slurry. During mixing start up or shut down, motive fluid can be recirculated through the Radial Premixer to clear the Shear-Mixer mixing chamber of any accumulated or settled additives.

Radial Premixer “pre-wetter” and washdown accessory

The Vortex V-Slide bulk flow promoter promotes continuous, uniform mass flow of powders and granular materials. Bridging, plugging and "rat-holing" occur when bulk material uniformly compacts in the divergent section of concentric reducers, surge tanks, silos and bulk hoppers. The Vortex V- Slide’s elliptical lobe design eliminates the circumferential stress point found in typical cone shaped hoppers, allowing bulk material to flow freely without outside assistance.
