Jet mixing employs a special dual nozzle assembly with entrainment ports. Tank liquid is pumped through a liquid line and then through the inner nozzle. High velocity is created by the inner nozzle forming a jet plume. This jet plume pulls tank liquid through the entrainment port and then discharges the liquid through the outer nozzle. Transfer of the high velocity stream to the surrounding liquid entrains additional flow increasing the pumping rate by as much as ten times the pumping capacity.
There are no moving parts within the jet mixing nozzle with several nozzles typically installed along a header system or radially around a central mounted cluster. Several different nozzle sizes are available depending on the particular application and type of mixing energy desired.
CUSTOM MIXING SYSTEMS
Our mixing systems are custom designed and sized based on the level of mixing required including solids suspension, stirring, blending, tank turnover or flash mixing. Depending on the makeup of the water, components can include special corrosion-resistant or chemical-resistant materials as needed.
Each jet nozzle entrains a large volume of liquid, using a small amount of pumped fluid. This innovative system produces extremely high mixing rates and strong movement using very little energy.
Due to their flexibility, jet mixing systems can be used in many different tank geometries and depths including very shallow or deep tanks.
It’s simple, cost less and is easier to maintain than other traditional methods, particularly those employing rotating devices.
