Mixrite Jet Mixers also known as Mixing Eductors comprises of two critical components namely the motive nozzle and the diffuser. In Jet Mixing , a fast moving stream of liquid [ motive liquid ] is injected into a slow moving or stationary liquid [ secondary liquid ]. In Jet Mixer , the velocity difference between the jet and the secondary liquid creates a mixing layer of jet boundary.
This mixing layer grows in the direction of jet flow, entraining / mixing the bulk liquid into the jet. Jet Mixers can be used as substitute for Agitators in practically all the cases where the liquids to be mixed can be pumped. Some typical applications of Jet Mixers are mixing / blending, solid suspension, electro coating / pretreatment tanks, lube oil blending, neutralization tanks, storage tanks for homogenization etc.
An established amount of motive liquid is pumped through a header into one or multiple jet mixers submerged within the tank. Depending on the application , the motive liquid can be recycled from the same tank or can be a another liquid drawn from a different source which is to be mixed with the tank contents under consideration. The static pressure at the entrance of the nozzle is converted into kinetic energy by allowing the fluid to flow freely through a convergent type nozzle. As the operating fluid exits the Jet Mixer nozzle, it entrains fluid from the tank through the suction chamber. The operating liquid along withentrained liquid then undergoes thorough mixing in the parallel section of the Jet Mixer diffuser. The divergent portion of the diffuser helps in converting the velocity head to pressure head at the discharge end of the Jet mixer. The discharge flow continues the mixing action of the liquid and imparts uniform mixing throughout the tank.

Mixrite manufactures as well as imports Jet Mixers from global suppliers to meet with challenging applications and stringent delivery requirements.
Jet Mixers are generally installed at the deepest point in the tank so that they are functional even at fluctuating liquid levels during filling and emptying operation of the tank.The number of jet mixers and their position in the tank is broadly based on Geometry and Size of the Tank, Type of liquids to be mixed and their transport properties, Mixing time, Max/Min liquid levels and the turnover rate.
Typical installation / orientation of the Jet Mixers is as shown in the figure.
