SMP™ with scoop between two flanges

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. The Static Mixing Plate is easily incorporated into your pipeline with minimal space requirements as it easily inserts between two flanges.

KAM also provides alternative mixing solutions, always compliant with API MPMS 8.2: The KAM SMS Static Mixing Spool and the KAM ML Mixing Loop

SMP Static Mixing Plate





SMP Static Mixing Plate with scoop


The SMP Static Mixing Plate with scoop is designed for heavily stratified flows. The scoop guides the denser material from the bottom of the pipeline into the mixing plate where it is combined  with the less dense material into counter rotating vortices, creating a homogenous mixture.
