Original Press Release:
Open Channel Mixer Eliminates Energy Consumption Totally
A new (patent pending) open channel mixer that has no moving parts, needs no power, and is ideal for municipal chlorination applications is being introduced by Westfall Manufacturing Company of Bristol, Rhode Island.
The Westfall Model 4000 Open Channel Mixer consists of a pipe fitted with an inlet cone that is mounted in a bulkhead and features three sets of vanes which are strategically placed to create vortices and multiple zones of turbulence that intersect to produce optimal mixing. Providing excellent mixing with CoV 0.008, 10 dia. downstream, validated by Alden Research Labs., this mixer has no moving parts and eliminates energy consumption totally.
Suitable for installation into open channels up to 20'wide x 20'deep, the Westfall Model 4000 Open Channel Mixer eliminates powered mixers, gear boxes, propellers, and related energy and maintenance costs. This mixer's low pressure loss characteristics are very desirable and the raked angles of the vanes prevent fouling and mitigate swirl to produce a smooth flow.
The Westfall Model 4000 Open Channel Mixer is priced from $25,000.00 up, depending upon size; installed by local contractors. Price quotations and technical specifications are provided upon request.
