Waste Water Treatment Coagulation and Flocculation – Static Mixers vs Dynamic Mixers

In waste water treatment, the term Dynamic Mixer means any mixer with a moving part, such as an impeller. This is usually a square tank with a center mounted mixer motor, shaft and impeller. Where Static Mixers are usually several sections of pipe with a convoluted insert that causes the water to change direction over and over again to achieve mixing. The mixing energy comes from the flow rate through the pipe. When adding coagulants and flocculants for waste water treatment, dynamic mixers work well for both chemicals. However static mixers work best for coagulants, but not for flocculants. Flocculants ... » Read More
