Proper scale-up technology is a key factor in reliability. And successful scale-up requires the knowledge and experience that Philadelphia Mixing Solutions has in process mixing operations, fluid mixing, and obtaining accurate data on a specific operation.
We offer scale-down/scale-up test services. We test power and torque levels as well as impeller designs and geometric ratios to achieve the optimal solution for your requirements. We can simulate your exact basin and/or vessels so that our test will work the same way as your plant – guaranteed!
Our torque-based scale-up technology is at the heart of our ability to solve customer problems and guarantee full-scale success through laboratory tests.
We use a 3-step approach:
- Scale-down speed to simulate the problem
- Find the solution
- Scale-up the solution
In 1965, Philadelphia Mixing Solutions, Ltd. built the largest mixers ever manufactured in the world for a 6,000,000 gallon coal slurry tank in the Mohave Desert. These agitators were designed in various scaled tanks in our laboratory and operated flawlessly at full size for over 40 years. Imagine what another 40 years of laboratory and testing experience has done for our capabilities and what that means for your operation.
