JetMixers

Jet mixers are widely used in both municipal and industrial wastewater treatment facilities to blend the plant influent and suspend light organic solids in circular equalization tanks.  Other applications for these powerful hydraulic mixers include mixing anoxic tanks and anaerobic reactors with the latter application being for industrial waste streams only.   Jet mixers are the technology of choice based on their flexibility of operation and configuration in small and large diameter tanks, the highly corrosion and abrasion resistant in-basin components, the use of simple external pumping systems, and a +20-year design life.
