How
to Size your JDMIX Static Mixer Sizing a typical JDMIX motionless mixer for water like applications is very simple. The formulas listed below for Reynolds number and velocity will enable you to determine just how many mixing elements are necessary for your application. 1) Calculate the Reynolds number for your application to make sure you are in turbulent flow Re = 3157QS/uD
Example: 100 gpm of water flowing in a 3 inch carbon steel pipeline
Reynolds Number = 102,900 2) Calculate the velocity for your application in fps V = .408Q/d2 = fps
Example: 100 gpm of water flowing in a 3 inch carbon steel pipeline
Velocity = 4.33 fps If you are in turbulent flow, the number of mixing elements necessary for 100% homogeneous mixing is as follows:
For the example above, going 4.3 fps in a 3 inch diameter pipeline, you need three mixing elements for a 100% homogeneous mix. Please note to double check your summary with your local JDMIX, Inc representative.
