This video presents the main concepts of wastewater mixing, and how mixers with integrated variable speed control can lower energy use and reduce wear. First, we look at how a mixer’s placement, thrust and speed affect your mixing operations. Then we show how Xylem’s Flygt adaptive mixers automatically deliver the right amount of thrust at all times, so no energy is wasted.
With a traditional single-speed mixer, you have to always operate at 100% capacity, regardless of how much mixing you actually need. Instead, Flygt adaptive mixers have been designed to automatically adjust to a wide range of operating conditions. This minimizes energy use while still meeting your requirements.
