Mixing heads for dynamic or static mixing and precise dosing
of polymeric reactive materials

 

Process-reliable mixing of demanding material formulations

A mixing head for processing two or three components has three essential functions. Firstly, the precise dosing of two components into the mixing chamber at the specified mixing ratio through the built-in valve technology. Secondly, the components are homogeneously mixed within the mixing chamber by the servo-controlled agitator. Then the material is applied precisely onto the part through the dosing nozzle.

For material systems with simple mixing ratios and generous processing tolerances, static mixing is often enough. Here, the two material components only need to be pressed through a mixing tube in the correct quantity ratio. The material flow is then swirled by the inside structures of the mixing tube to such an extent that sufficient mixing occurs.


Dynamic mixing systems for hug requirements

Many industrial applications, however, require highly complex material systems that overstrain the possibilities of static mixers. Here, dynamic mixing systems are needed to reliably process these demanding recipes for industrial production. Liquid to highly viscous polymeric reactive materials can be processed with mixing heads for dynamic mixing. They have output quantities from 0.05 to 100 g/s depending on the type of mixing head. The mixing ratio is infinitely adjustable from 100 : 1 to 1 : 100.

And all this is possible with an extremely high accuracy of ±1 % of the quantity to be applied. These values can vary depending on the mixing ratios, material viscosities and the adaptation of pumps, hoses and mixing elements. Properties such as reactivity and abrasiveness of the material also play a major role here.

For this purpose, we offer you various mixing head designs, from the simple SONDERHOFF MK 20 with static mixing to our reference models from the SONDERHOFF MK 600 series. They are used for our low-pressure mixing and dosing systems for the application of sealing foams, adhesives and potting compounds based on polyurethane or silicone.
