Gas Induction Agitators

Mixion - Mixing Technology

Mixion - Mixing Technology


Our Industrial gas induction turbine agitator is a result of exhaustive research by GMM Pfaudler & its academic affiliates from ICT Mumbai. By virtue of its unique geometry, HEGI can create almost three times higher gas hold up as compared to some of the traditional impeller systems at a given power input/m3. The well-dispersed gas and a higher hold up improve the mass transfer co-efficient improving your overall batch productivity.

Mixion hydrogenators are specially designed for the chemical process industries where effective gas-liquid contact is of prime importance to achieve optimum results. These gas-induction reactors are fitted with a patented* high-efficiency gas induction impeller (HEGI) which helps the induced gas to get well dispersed into the reaction bulk, enhancing the gas-liquid mass transfer rates.

In the chemical process industries, several reactions involve the use of pure gas to accomplish desired chemical reactions. Thus, effective gas-liquid contact is of prime importance to achieve optimum results. Often in such processes, the conversion of gas is fairly poor, and a substantial amount of gas leaves the reaction bulk unreacted. The treatment of unreacted gas for reuse or for disposal is expensive in the capital and operating costs and even objectionable due to its toxic nature. In such cases, where it becomes desirable to recycle the unreacted gas back from the reactor vapor-space, a gas induction agitator is the most favorable solution.

Multiple Impeller Systems

Several of these chemical processes are catalytic reactions and involve suspension of a catalyst such as Raney Nickel & Palladium. A uniform suspension of these catalysts is critical to optimum batch yield which is essentially what multiple impeller systems alongside HEGI effectively ensures.

A Complete Reactor Solution

Mixion can offer agitators with both solutions – double mechanical seal with suitable seal plan and a proprietary magnetic seal developed using technology from Mavag.

Features & Benefits of HEGI

  • Higher gas hold-up & mass transfer
  • Effective power per unit volume utilization with higher gas hold -up
  • Optimized power consumption
  • Uniform catalyst suspension
