Quadro Ytron® Jet Mixer

This unique low shear industrial tank mixer changes the traditional in-tank flow pattern to provide more efficient mixing and blending of liquids and suspended solids. The Y-Jet mixing pattern does not create a radial flow pattern or liquid vortex. Thus, this low shear industrial mixer does not require difficult-to-clean tank baffles, which means that air entrainment is virtually eliminated.

Uniform Velocity Profile

The Quadro Ytron® Jet Mixer produces a uniform velocity profile throughout the product mix, with no stratification or dead areas. This feature improves heat transfer rates and reduces batch blending times by as much as 80%. This makes the Y-Jet in-tank mixer the ideal low shear industrial tank mixer for suspension and re-suspension of high-settling-rate solids.

Quadro Ytron® C-Type Jet Mixer

This side-entry variant offers all the benefits of our standard in-tank jet mixer with enhanced sanitary features that offer more reliable CIP operation. Easy-to-clean line-of-sight access to all product contact areas and compliance with 3-A® Sanitary Standards make the C-Type our best sanitary, low shear tank mixer for food processing & beverage applications.

In-Tank Mixer Principles

This industrial tank mixer technology incorporates a specially designed rotor/stator mixing head to create a pure axial flow pattern. An axial flow impeller within a unique, finned stator eliminates radial flow to deliver a strong axial discharge. Product is delivered directly to the head for single-pass in-tank processing. The Y Jet Mixer is mounted near the tank wall to ensure strong top-to-bottom roll that results in a uniform velocity profile of the tank contents, without vortexing or air entrainment. Together, these features combine to help your product achieve superior blending in an industrial tank mixer.

Dust-Free Powder Handling for In-Tank Mixing

When your application requires dust-free powder blending, the Quadro Ytron® Jet Mixer offers a variety of powder handling methods for delivering powders to the bypass tube. This maximizes in-tank mixing performance, reduces health and safety concerns, minimizes cross-contamination, and eliminates the need for expensive material conveyors.
