Try pouring cooking oil over water and see what happens? You will see that the water and oil form two layers, and the oil will float on the water. Try blowing air into the liquid again and see what happens? Bubbles appear in the liquid but also disappear quickly.
In thicker oils, this happens more slowly than in water. Oil, water, and natural gas do not mix, and Static Mixers provide an excellent solution for mixing.
mix due to forced flow
Static Mixers consist of a tube element containing molded parts. These so-called mixing elements ensure that the flow profile is disturbed so that everything is mixed into a homogeneous mixture. In one process, external components, such as pumps, provide forced feed to the mixer.
There are no moving parts in Static Mixers, which has many advantages. So Static Mixers do not require maintenance, consume very little energy, and have no electrical components that could lead to a potentially explosive atmosphere. Determining the implementation and quantity of formed parts requires extensive knowledge and sophisticated computational models and software packages to determine the correct mix.
In general, when mixing, two mixing principles are applied from flow theory, i.e., mixing occurs from the laminar or turbulent flow.
