Conveying and mixing without formation of lumps
Liquid jet solids pump and jet mixers.
The admixture of solid, fluid or granular components is an important step in the processing industry which must be accomplished in an easy and reliable way, and, above all, without the formation of lumps.
GEA liquid jet solids pumps convey fluid or granular product by means of a motive liquid. The granular product is admixed to the motive liquid.
The motive liquid flows at a high speed from the motive nozzle into the mixing room of the pump and entrains the product to be conveyed. In the mixing nozzle, a homogeneous admixture of solid matters into the liquid is achieved. In the product tank, one or more jet mixers provide for an even mixing of the complete tank contents.
The liquid jet solids pumps and liquid jet mixers are of simple design, almost maintenance-free, are easy to be cleaned, and are suited for CIP.
Typical applications are:
- Admixture of powder in liquid in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry
- Admixture of fruit concentrates, sugar and other additives for the production of food and beverages.
- Production of food colorants, where carotene is admixed together with edible oil as motive medium
- Mash of flour with water in alcohol production
