StaMixCo Technology AG of Dinhard, Switzerland, introduced a larger SMB-R extrusion static mixer melt blender, with models designed for extrusion flow channels with nominal diameters of 6, 7, 8 and 10 inches.
The company said the new sizes are well-suited for large extruders with very high output and for the production of foamed products.
The mixers are made of stainless steel. StaMixCo has eliminated the stagnating zones at the wall where the mixer bars enter the surrounding support ring.
StaMixCo also introduced its GXF disposable static mixer — now made of injection molded polypropylene and glass-filled nylon, instead of more-expensive machined metal. The GXF is designed for hard-to-mix viscous mixing/dispersing applications in two-component systems for urethanes, adhesives and varnishes.
The GXF uses the X-shape geometric static mixing structure. The unit is good for mixing and dispersing two fluids with large differences in viscosity or extreme flow-rate ratios that normally would require a very long string of helical static mixing elements.
The company's U.S. operation, StaMixCo LLC, is in Brooklyn, N.Y.
