Why Even Mix™?
Industries We Serve – Agriculture – Farms and Growers
Agriculture – Farmers and Growers
- Effective Mixing of Ingredients
- Ease of Use and Transport
- Keep Ingredients Circulating and Avoid Settling
You need to get agriculture chemicals and powders mixed together or dispersed into water evenly and consistency. Once you’ve gotten them mixed you need them to stay mixed. Every farmer has experienced draining a container or holding tank to shovel out the sludge that settled in the tank just to try to get it mixed again. You pay a lot for the chemicals you use and you need them to stay in suspension. Pumps have been the primary mixing equipment. They are slow and inefficient. Even Mix™ can easily be installed on an IBC or plastic tote as well as a agriculture poly tank up to 3,000 gallons to mix the entire contents quickly and consistently.
Types of Mixers
Most agriculture mixers look like boat props and produce a lot of vertical flow. These mixers are usually ran at high speeds and produce a deep vortex. They sheer the product and introduce air into the liquid. Others are impellers and produce only axial flow (outward horizontal flow). These mixers don’t create much circulation and don’t mix much vertically. Finally, there are pitched blades that have a constant pitch across the blade. They produce a significant vertical flow and a deep vortex. They don’t accomplish much horizontal mixing and introduce a lot of air into the liquid.
Even Mix™ and our patented mixing blades are uniquely designed for agriculture science since we provide a low sheer (we don’t chop and blend the inputs we give them movement). Our blade design creates a 3D circulation around the entire tank or vessel. Our mixing blades create circulation down and then out creating a cycling motion from bottom to top and inside to out. We used a NASA Engineer to design the optimum flow pattern for liquids to give you the best results. Notice that Even Mix™ blades have a variable pitch. They begin at 90 degrees and bend gradually to 30 degrees at the end of the mixing blade. This variable pitch is the patented feature and creates circulation without high speed, a vortex, or sheer which are all undesirable outcomes when mixing.
The Stainless Steel 316 food grade components make cleanup a breeze and are easy to keep from interfering with heating coils and other elements of the tanks. The Even Mix™ mixers are easy to integrate with Tri-Clamp Fittings. Even Mix™ turns at 140 RPM which keeps the circulation gentle but effective. We pump down to mix and blend the contents and clear the bottom of the vessel.
We have integrated our mixers into still’s, plastic IBC’s, drum’s, stainless steel IBC’s, all types of containers up to 1,500 gallons. We can interface with NPT openings, flanges, Tri-Clamp Fittings, and many others. Just call us to discuss your application at 440-236-6677.
