Alfa Laval’s Rotary Jet Mixer Iso-Mix (RJM) is designed to provide fast, efficient and economical mixing of powders and fluids within tanks and other storage vessels.

It has been developed for duties in a range of industries, including brewing, food and beverages, and pharmaceuticals, and is said to provide up to 30 per cent faster mixing times compared with conventional technology.

According to Alfa Laval, the RJM is equally effective at mixing liquids and powders, de-aeration and carbonation, due to its 3600 mixing capabilities.

The machine’s technology has been adapted from efficient rotary-jet tank-cleaning machines and proven in hygienic installations.

In use, it constantly re-circulates liquid from the bottom of the vessel to the jet-mixer body, positioned beneath the surface of the liquid.

As the RJM’s four nozzles rotate about vertical and horizontal axes, they blend and mix the tank contents.

The main advantage that the Rotary Jet Mixer provides, according to Alfa Laval, is that it reduces the number of vessels required in a typical beverage-mixing operation.

Conventionally, separate tanks are required for de-aeration, syrup mixing and carbonation.

With the Alfa Laval Rotary Jet Mixer, only one vessel is required since the machine will perform all three duties in a single tank.

The RJM can also be used for standard tank-cleaning duties.

Other features include: superior mixing performance, which results in better product quality and uniform consistency; faster production rates; efficient gas or powder dispersion; lower initial capital investment and lower operating costs – according to the company.

Alfa Laval also offers a range of tank components and equipment, which includes agitators, manway covers and tank-cleaning machines.
