Rotary jet mixer

September 10, 2012
fex0912ts16_inbody.jpgThe Alfa Laval Iso-Mix rotary jet technology device mixes liquid, gas or powder, all in the same tank. The unit is equipped with either 2 or 4 rotating nozzles, where liquid is circulated via an external loop and propelled through the jets while the mixer rotates both horizontally and vertically. When introducing gas to the system, the rotary jet mixer controls and minimizes beverage oxygen content to levels under 5ppb. The mixing action dissolves stabilizers and thickeners such as xanthan, guar gum, pectin and other hydrophobic powders. After mixing, the unit serves as a rotary jet tank cleaning device. It retrofits into any vat or production line, including cans, bottles or aseptic packaging.
