Why Even Mix™?
Industries We Serve – Oil, Gas, and Mining
Oil Gas and Mining
- Mix and Keep Chemicals in Solution
- Even Distribution of Solids within a Tank
- Safety as it relates to mixing potential explosive components
You need to get chemicals and solids mixed together or dispersed into water evenly and consistency. Once you’ve gotten them mixed you need them to stay mixed. We have the experience with designing and installing top mixers to get the job done complete and much more cost effectively than submersible or air mixers. You pay a lot for the chemicals and additives you use and you need them to stay in suspension. Even Mix™ can easily be installed on an IBC or plastic tote as well as an open tank up to 5,000 gallons to mix the entire contents quickly and consistently.
Types of Mixers
Most 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 not 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.
Our mixers are made of Stainless Steel 316 which is non-reactive to most chemicals, Steel, and Aluminum. We have made modifications when necessary for customers. Wilson Mining of Australia needed to avoid aluminum components in our mixers. We had 2 housings that we needed to avoid. No problem, we made the components from Stainless Steel.
We have integrated our mixers into all types of containers up to 5,000 gallons. We can interface with NPT openings, flanges, Tri-Clamp Fittings, and many others.

Each mixing system has our patented mixing blades.
