SIMPLE YET EFFECTIVE MIXING
A static mixer has no moving parts and works extremely well in creating emulsions, stable suspensions of one liquid in a second immiscible liquid. Static mixers create stable emulsions because they reduce the particles to a smaller size so they stay together in a stronger bond for a longer period of time. In general, static mixers work by dividing streams of ingredients that need to be mixed. The ingredient stream typically is forced through the static mixer by a pump. The ingredients then are split into substreams as they are forced through the mixer. These substreams then are recombined and divided once again. This process might be repeated numerous times.
