Particle and droplet size reduction

Maelstrom's patented inline mixing geometries push rotor-stator technology into new areas of performance.  Smaller droplets and particles are possible at lower mixing power and higher flowrates than with any comparable, commercially-available form of mixer.

For your process, this means scaleable, high performance mixing for finer quality dispersions and emulsions at industrial scales.

Adding solids to viscous fluids - inline

One of the most difficult problems faced in many inline process applications is how to get a powder or granular solid into a viscous fluid.  Standard entrainment, eduction and injection methods used with low viscosity fluids will not work at high viscosity. The Maelstrom solution is the twin-screw EMT extruder-feeder.  This uses a co-rotating, closely-intermeshing screw design with self-wiping capability to transport, blend and pressurise powders and liquids into downstream processing equipment.  Typically used as a front-end to the DCM and DCL range of mixers with options available for hygienic applications, the EMT is a versatile and reliable feeding solution.

Ultra-low shear inline blending

Based on Maelstrom's patented FDM technology, the DCL range of inline blending machines uses inter-cavity transfer mixing to deliver exceptional blending results at very low shear rates.  This allows dosing and blending of shear-sensitive materials such as adhesives, polymers and certain foods in a highly controlled way. The DCL typically replaces static and pin mixers where improved blending is needed at lower shear rates.  It can also be fitted to extruders for blending additives into rubber and plastic materials.  

Rapid prototyping and geometry customisation

Using the latest 3D printing techniques in metal and plastic, Maelstrom is able to design and build custom geometry variants or modifications on a rapid turnaround basis.  This allows customers to experiment with many different mixing options during trial work to settle on a particular geometry for full-scale production.

Certain metal components can also be speedily printed as replacement parts in situations where spares are urgently needed.  The latest metal sintering methods allow high strength and stainless steel materials to be produced with good surface finishes that can get customers back up and running in hours or days rather than weeks.

End-to-end integrated inline mixing systems

Mixing is often at the heart of fluid processing operations and mixers are seldom used in isolation.  In addition to mixers and pumps, Maelstrom also provides complete, integrated solutions from material input to final dosing and packaging with drives, controls and ancillary systems included.  This end-to-end capability ensures that customers get a complete, purpose-designed and built process line that meets a target specification and that all of the integration and project management aspects are taken care of. Maelstrom also offers a comprehensive maintenance and technical support services to ensure that production processes keep running smoothly and efficiently.
