Solids Dosing


A versatile method of entraining, mixing and pumping solids into liquids. The Venturi principle offers many advantages over other types of high shear mixing equipment on the market. Robust and highly reliable with no moving parts to wear, the units are virtually maintenance free.

Available in either stationary, portable or mobile models, the custom designed Liquid Jet Solids Pump (LSP) units can be supplied as individual items or complete skid mounted systems including motive pump, valves etc. Powder can be loaded manually or automatically using screw feeders at ground level, thereby keeping powder handling at a minimum. In many cases fluid energy from existing pumps can be used which eliminates the need for additional power.

Advantages

  • Reduced powder handling
  • No moving parts
  • Complete mixing of powders and liquids
  • Materials to suit process
  • Low level operation
  • Reduced batch times
  • No maintenance
  • Existing pumps can often be used



Depending upon the process conditions operation can be on a once-through or recirculation basis

Materials of construction can be varied to suit the process environment. Stainless steel, carbon steel, polypropylene, PTFE and other materials are available with connections to suit. For food and pharmaceutical applications units can be designed to comply with stringent hygiene requirements using polished stainless steel and sanitary fittings.
