Quicker Mixer

04 January 2001

Australian scientists have produced a mixer that is five times more energy efficient than traditional industrial mixing for everything from explosives to cosmetics. The now patented CSIRO Rotated Arc Mixer (RAM) mixer can also mix thick fluids better than any other mixer. Inventors Guy Metcalfe and Murray Rudman of CSIRO Thermal & Fluids Engineering say, "The RAM overcomes many mixing problems. For example, static mixers used in cosmetics manufacture, have baffles, plates and constrictions that result in regions that clog and cause material build-up."
