Creating a homogenous flow in liquids and gasses, the KAM SMP Static Mixing Plate ensures accurate flow measurement and mixing for a variety of purposes and materials including natural gas and crude oil and refined fuels. It is particularly well suited for sampling, blending, additive injection, and homogenizing building materials, adhesives, gasses, foods, fire fighting foam, etc.
The uniquely simple design requires no outside energy source, utilizing the natural flow within the pipe instead and achieving turbulent flow at a much lower Reynolds number than other conventional static mixers. The Static Mixing Plate divides that flow into two counter-rotating streams. These vortices rotate until the energy added to the flow is totally dissipated, thereby creating a homogenous flow over a short distance with minimal pressure drop.
When mixing heavier fluids that stratify in a horizontal pipeline, the front scoop option can be used to lift the heavier fluid from the bottom of the pipe, mixing it with the fluid in the top. A cost-effective alternative to traditional, spool models, the Static Mixing Plate not only generally costs less, but is also easily incorporated into your pipeline with minimal space requirements as it easily inserts between two flanges. This reduces system height and footprint for cheaper fabrication and shipping.
