New Inline Mixer Shortens Production Processes
The new IKA high-performance inline CMX mixer

The new IKA high-performance inline mixer CMX reduces production times when blending solids into liquids about at least 50% compared to conventional inline devices. This is enabled by a two-stage design with a pumping and dispersing stage. It guarantees a stable circulation even with increasing viscosity, and reduces the need for auxiliary equipment.

Commonly, the mixing system is supplied with a mixing vessel and a solid material dosing feeder and is operated in a recirculation process. The fluid circulation creates a powerful vacuum that draws the solids into the mixing chamber. In this highly turbulent area small volumes of powder are being mixed into the liquid.

The CMX can process batch sizes ranging from 2 to more than 5000 l, and circulation rates of 1500–200,000 l/hr can be achieved.

The closed system of the CMX 2000 prevents dust and solvent emissions in the process. As agglomerates are reliably prevented as well and the raw materials are homogeneously mixed, the final products achieve a consistently high quality.
