What Does Static Mixer Mean?
A static mixer is a type of fixed equipment that is used to manipulate the miscibility of various fluid streams. It is inserted into a process vessel or pipeline to divide, spread, combine or disassociate a given fluid mixture. Static mixers may be prone to corrosion if they are made of metal and operate in an acidic, brine-rich or otherwise corrosion inducing fluid.
Static mixers may also be referred to as inline mixers, primarily in the pipeline industry.
