Data acquisition and performance check are available for all processing capacity from laboratory scale to commercial scale of equipment.
Engineers of Sumitomo Heavy Industries Process Equipment, experts of mixing,
will help you with the improvement of the mixing process,
the establishment of a new process, and performance comparison tests.
We will propose an optimum solution tailored to your agenda. Feel free to consult us.
STEP!! for Mixing Equipment Optimization
General study steps to determine
for mixing equipment
STEP 01 Consultation
Please tell us about your current problems and what you want to improve.
We will confirm "current problems and issues" and "the purpose of mixing".
STEP 02 Exploring Factors
We will explore "current problems and issues" based on our clients' and our own experience.
STEP 03 Development of Countermeasures
Narrow down factors in consideration of priorities and formulate countermeasures.
Estimate and schedule confirmation
Review and Verification
of Proposed Countermeasures
The measures we have developed will be verified in one or more of the following areas.
on our past experience.
- Consideration of mixing power
- Setting up mixing power to fit the purposes, selection of motor capacity
- Consideration of heat transfer performance
- Calculation of temperature rise time in mixing vessel
general-purpose thermal hydraulics
・Flow, Concentration, Heat transfer
Test Impeller Fabrication Service
Verification with your existing
mixing vessel or with
a material difficult to take out
This service creates a custom-order mixing impeller that suits the testing conducted with your own mixing vessel or with a material that is difficult to take outside your company.
We will propose an impeller shape that suits your process, and deliver a custom-order impeller together with a power curve chart.
Supported vessel capacities: 3 to 1000 L
Delivery: Approx. one month
Test Device Rental Service
Verification with mixing equipment
under real-life conditions
Sumitomo Heavy Industries Process Equipment have rental devices for testing.
We provide a variety of devices including NANOVisK, a hybrid mixing device that realizes the nano range of droplets in emulsion, and MAXBLEND, whose unique impeller shape exercises ground-breaking mixing characteristics.
visualization tests tested
by mixing experts
Visit us to conduct the test. You will use our experimental facilities with the attendance of a specialized engineer who help you collect data necessary to determine the specification of mixing type of reactors including a separable flask and a production machine.
We also provide various types of impellers and internal devices.
- Mixing test
measuring the decolorization time and optimum mixing power and observing stagnant one using a simulated liquid
- Solid-liquid suspension test
easuring the local slurry concentration and the critical suspension power
- Gas dispersion test
measuring kLa and gas holdup
STEP 05 Optimal Proposal for Mixing Equipment
