TWIN VORTEX ADVANTAGE

THE MIX-AERATOR
Innovation In
Pond & Lagoon Aeration & Mixing
A unique technology based
on spinning motion – and
the phenomenon of the
VORTEX
The VORTEX
(A)
A vortex can be seen in nature as a
whirlpool of liquid – the downward
drag and powerful suction of air
that naturally occurs. (the simplest
demonstration is when you pull the
plug in your bath).
(B)
The vortex can also be in nature as
a whirlpool of air (such as twisters
or tornadoes) created by the forces
of the wind when air pressures
combine. In this context, the vortex
is undisputedly recognized by the
destructive power, momentum and
velocities created via the spiralling
movement of matter.
TWIN VORTEX ADVANTAGE
The TWIN VORTEX Technology
creates Vortex (A) using the
downward and powerful
suction of air to naturally
aerate and mix.
inverts and creates Vortex (B)
using the momentum and
velocity to naturally mix and
disperse.
THE TWIN VORTEX ADVANTAGE
is therefore:
AERATION
and
MIXING
The MIX-AERATOR provides the TVA
• How Does the Mix-Aerator Function?
• Upper disks create the vortex that
draws downwards. The more disks
used, the greater the power of the
vortex. This vortex also draws
downwards any gases, odors or
foaming rising from the liquid and
mixes them back into the fluid.
• Lower disks are the secondary mixing
disks which create the bottom vortex
to draw upwards. This vortex ensures
homogenous, extended mixing
patterns that, in the case of gases,
create optimum transfer efficiencies
or dissolution uptakes.
Additional MIX-AERATOR info
• Disks are polished smooth for minimal frictional resistance. The strength of laminar
flow is determined by the spaces between the disks, tip velocities and speed. It is
the kinetic momentum gain of the vortices and the concurrent minimal resistance
of the laminar flow that produces both energy and additive optimization efficiencies
superior to conventional mixing blades or cyclone/spiral flow competitors.
MIX-AERATOR - AERATION
Aggressive aeration derived
from atmospheric air to
oxygenate is created by the
MIX-AERATOR head.
Air bubbles clearly visible
Velocity increases achieved
mean a lower energy
requirement when compared to
normal agitator or compressed
air induced aeration.
MIX-AERATOR – MIXING
Perhaps the simplest and most efficient method of mixing yet available.
• The upper disks create the
top vortex that draws
downwards any gases,
odors or foaming rising
from the liquid and mixes
them back into the fluid.
• The lower disks are the
secondary mixing disks
which create the bottom
vortex to draw upwards
Where mixing and not
aeration or the
opposite is the main
aim, configurations
can be adapted to suit.

Toxic waste – mixing and
aeration causing continual
foaming to allow natural UV
and sunlight breakdown of
toxins.
MIX-AERATOR - TREATMENT
• Sewage Treatment elimination of odor by
recycling to treatment
plant.
