Comparison of conventional static mixer with OHR MIXER

Intended purpose
OHR MIXER Conventional static mixer
For difficult mixing and reaction situations.
For easy mixing and reaction situations.
OHR MIXER is used as an alternative to huge and complicated
conventional reaction equipment because OHR MIXER has a
very strong mixing capability. Therefore it is used for various
difficult situations including “emulsification without an
emulsifier at a very low-pressure”, “uniformly dispersing trace
additives” and “highly efficient ozone treatment without waste
ozone decomposition equipment”.

▶ 12 real case examples
Engineers share a common understanding that conventional
static mixers can only be used for premixing.
It certainly was an innovative technology at the beginning of
its development and was expected to be applied to various
mixing facilities, but now it is clear that it can only be used in
easy situations.
If you only need to do easy mixing, please use a conventional
inline mixer.

Mixing principle
Fluids are separated into layers by centrifugal force
and broken down into microparticles
by boundary layer separation.
Divided into 2. (1 to 2, 2 to 4, 4 to 8,…)
OHR MIXER breaks down fluids into microparticles
instantaneously by two kinds of special structures, and
microparticles are crushed violently by centrifugal force /
centripetal force.
OHR MIXER is original and there is no inline mixer like it because
it makes fluids finer by hydrodynamic process without passing
through narrow holes or applying high pressure.

▶ Mechanism
The principle of conventional static mixers is to divide the
fluids with helical plates fixed inside into two, so one
becomes two and two becomes four and four becomes eight
and so on.
There is no function to break down fluids into microparticles
at all.

Element types and shape
Crossing plates (guide vane) and
mushroom-shaped separators.
Helical plates are fixed continuously.
The structure is really simple.
One OHR MIXER only is used in one line. No need to connect
more than one unit like conventional static mixers.
The unique mushroom-shaped microparticle separator is the
world’s only airplane wings design.

▶ Mechanism
Helical plates are fixed inside, and divides the fluids.
In cases where two or more units are connected and used,
the pressure loss becomes high and in some cases fluid doesn’t
come out of the pipe outlet.

Emulsify without emulsifier
Possible at a low pump pressure of 0.3MPa.
 Impossible even when six static mixers are connected.
Normally, water and oil will separate. But when passed
through an OHR MIXER at a very low pump pressure (0.3MPa),
water and oil can be emulsified in one-pass without adding
an emulsifier.
One user replaced a $200,000 worth of high pressure
emulsification equipment with an OHR MIXER that costs
only $4,000. This fact is also proof that the OHR MIXER has
a very strong mixing ability.

▶ 12 real case examples
Even when six units are connected, emulsification is impossible.
It does not have a powerful mixing capability that can
miniaturize oil and water.

Particle size
0.5~3.0μm size passing through one unit one-pass only.  
  200μm-size even when passing through six static mixers.
With one pass, fluids are broken down very finely.

The ability to miniaturize is very low, so fluids can not be
broken down finely.

Substitute for reaction  and mixing equipment
High pressure, expensive, complicated, and huge
conventional reaction and mixing equipments can be
replaced simply with only one OHR MIXER.
It is the only inline mixer that can meet challenges such as
"We want to make our factory more environmentally friendly",
"We want to save energy", "We want to make a completely
new product".

Can be used for premixing, but can not replace the main
reaction and mixing equipment.
