Media Type
   Media Type:      Other media characteristics, such as pH, concentration, and specific gravity, are important and should be discussed with the vendor for compatibility.
   Your choices are...         
   Liquids, Solutions, Emulsions       Mixers and Homogenizers used for mixing combinations of liquids, solutions and emulsions.  Solutions consist of a substance (called a solute) dissolved in a liquid (called a solvent).  Emulsions are combinations of immiscible (unblendable) liquids, such as oil and water. 
   Suspensions, Slurries, Pastes, Colloids       Mixers and Homogenizers process liquids containing solids.  Suspensions (including slurries and pastes) are liquids that contain solid particles sufficiently large for sedimentation.  Colloids have smaller particles that will not settle. 
   Powders or Granules       Devices process powder or granular materials, such as dry cement.

Operating Configuration
   Mixer Type:       
   Your choices are...         
   Agitator       Agitators are used to mix product within a vessel. 
   Conical Screw       Conical screw mixers use a rotating screw that progresses around the periphery of a conical hopper. The screw lifts solids from the bottom of the hopper to the top, where the mixture flows by gravity back into the screw. Mixing occurs around the open screw, where the solids transported by the screw exit at various levels and are replaced by other solids at that level. The screw’s shearing action also mixes the various components. Gross mixing occurs by the velocity profile created in the conical hopper as it feeds the screw. This gross mixing action is most effective when the solids move along the conical hopper walls. 
   Fluidized Bed       Fluidized bed mixers fluidize the complete product bed and are very efficient and thorough, as indicated by higher applied horsepower, rotational speeds and more durable vessel construction. 
   Homogenizer       Homogenizers are mechanical devices used to create a stable, uniform dispersion of an insoluble phase within a liquid phase. 
   Kneader       Kneaders provide a kneading motion to mix the contents of the mixer. 
   Magnetic Stirrer       Magnetic stirrer configurations feature a magnetic rod that is place in a container with a substance that needs to be mixed.  An external magnetic field causes the rod to rotate and thus mix. 
   Paddle       Paddle mixers use a horizontal rotating shaft (or shafts) with fixed arms and attached paddle-shaped feet. The paddles of the dual-shaft mixer impact the solids and force some of them onto the second shaft while pushing others toward one end of the unit. The paddles on the second shaft push the solids toward the opposite end, as well as toward the other shaft and paddle set.  
   Planetary       Planetary mixers usually have two mixing blades that rotate around individual shafts. The two blades further rotate around a center axis. The net effect is intermixing, stirring, and shear. 
   Propeller / Impeller       Propeller mixers and impeller mixers use vertical blades attached to a horizontal disc. The propeller or impeller pumps the media in a radial direction and generates a recirculating mixing pattern above and below the disc. This high-shear, high-power design is stable under varying liquid depths and makes an excellent choice as a rapid mixer in shallow basins and solids suspensions in shallow or varying water depths. Propellers are often used as the lower impeller in a multiple impeller design. 
   Ribbon       Ribbon mixers use a counter-transport mechanism that consists of an outside right-hand ribbon and an inside left-hand ribbon, each connected to the same horizontal shaft. This ribbon setup, combined with the mixer’s inability to transport an entire mass of solids, creates an extremely diverse velocity field. Such a mixer may transport a portion of the solids a short distance in both directions along the shaft’s axis, while also lifting a portion of the solids from top to bottom, thus allowing the mixture to slide down a repose angle. The result is a mixer that does a thorough and fast blending / mixing job in the vertical plane, but is slow when mixing end to end. 
   Rotor-Stator       Rotor-stators are single-shaft mixers with an impeller rotating in close proximity to a stationary housing. They are used to rapidly break apart solid particles in a liquid, and for emulsification. The impeller or rotor mechanically imparts high shear forces to the ingredients. Clumps of particles are also broken apart by the hydraulic shearing forces generated as particles are ejected through openings in the stator into the rest of the batch. Rotor-stators are particularly effective at chopping coarse particles such as rubber or flake resin. The stator directs the flow and confines the particles. The rotor imparts shear. 
   Single Rotor       Single-rotor devices consist of one shaft with either paddles or screws encased in a cylindrical shell. There are various types of products available. Shaft speeds range from moderately low to relatively high. 
   Twin Rotor       Twin-rotor devices consist of two shafts with either paddles or screws encased in a cylindrical shell. There are various types of products available. Shaft speeds ranging from moderately low to relatively high. 
   Static       Static mixers or motionless mixers are fins, obstructions, or channels mounted in pipes. They are designed to promote mixing as fluid flows through the device. Most static mixers use some method of first dividing the flow, then rotating, channeling, or diverting the flow, before recombining it. Other static mixers create additional turbulence to enhance mixing. The power input to the mixing process is a result of pressure loss through the mixer. 
   Turbine       Turbine mixers consist of a circular trough with housing in the center, around which revolves a spider or a series of legs with plow shares or mold boards on each leg. Turbine mixers are also known as plow mixers. 
   Vertical Turbine       Vertical turbine mixers include a wide range of general-purpose mixing equipment. Devices operate at reduced speeds provided by an enclosed gear drive, with one or more multi-bladed impellers mounted on an overhung shaft. Vertical turbine mixers can be used on open tanks, when supported by a beam structure, or on closed tanks with a variety of seal and support arrangements. Most turbine mixers are mounted at the center of the top of a vertical, cylindrical tank and used to mix low to medium viscosity liquids, slurries, dispersions, or other fluids. Because of the general-purpose capabilities of turbine mixers, at times they may be used on almost any shape tank, of any size, with other drives or special impellers, for high-viscosity fluids, and almost any mixing application. 
   Ultrasonic / Vibrational       Ultrasonic mixers or vibrational mixers apply ultrasonic waves to a mixed medium to produce a steep gradient of acoustical pressure which moves the fluid and provides a very fine level of mixing action. 
   Muller       There are several types of mullers, each of which has a turret. With countercurrent devices, the pan and muller rotate in opposite directions. Rotating pan devices have a stationary muller turret. 
   Rotary Drum / Tumbler       There are many types of tumbler and drum mixers. Examples include double-cone tumblers, twin-shell tumblers, rotary drums and horizontal drums. 
   Other Mixer Type       Other unlisted, specialized or proprietary mixers, homogenizers, and blenders.
