Bulk tanks and silos are commonly found in most dairy facilities. The products they contain tend to be shear-sensitive, and separate over time. The Jet Mixer has proven to be successful in bulk tank mixing and gentle handling of shear-sensitive products. Some of the products the Jet Mixer has successfully processed include yogurt pre-mix, infant formula, condensed milk whey, milk serum, buttermilk storage, milk protein isolate, cream and fresh cheese.
The discharge of a Jet Mixer creates a pure axial flow pattern eliminating vortexing, unwanted air entrainment and the need for hard-to clean baffles. The Jet Mixer eliminates stratification in large storage silos by maintaining complete tank motion of viscous, non-Newtonian fluids and easily suspends or re-suspends high-settling-rate solids.
Some additional benefits realized by dairy processors include improved heat transfer, reduction of blend times by as much as 90%, elimination of sedimentation and the virtual elimination of air entrainment.
There are five (5) sanitary Jet Mixer models available ranging from 1/3 - 75 HP.
