The Pulsair industrial tank mixing process works by sequentially injecting compressed air or gas into the bottom of a tank or vessel filled with liquid. Large air bubbles are released on the underside of flat round discs called “Accumulator Plates” that are attached or located at the tank bottom. The Pulsair controller regulates the amount of air, pressure and timing, depending on the type of material, viscosity, and temperature requirements. As the air "squeezes out" between the plate and tank floor, it sweeps out the heavier liquids and solids. The air then accumulates above the plate into a very large, single oval shaped bubble, and as the bubble rises to the surface, a vacuum is created that pulls the heavier bottom liquids and solids up with it; it also pushes the liquid above it up and out towards the tank perimeter, making the liquid move toward the sides of the tank and travel down the tank wall to the bottom. In that way the timed air pulses create vertical flow patterns mixing materials of different viscosities from the top to bottom. This powerful yet efficient mixing process involves the entire contents of the tank and can operate at any liquid level. The Pulsair mixing process is more efficient than mechanical mixers, mixes faster and requires zero in-tank maintenance.

Operating Schematic :


Benefits of the Pulsair Tank Mixing Process :
• Up to 95% more energy efficient than mechanical mixers
• Vertical mixing process suitable for any size tank or vessel
• Uniformly mixes 100% of tanks’s contents at any liquid level
• Eliminates need for separate mixing equipment outside the tank (eductors, mud mixers etc)
• Better tank utilization
• Improves and helps automate operations
Reduce mixing times and eliminates downtime
• Easily maintains homogeneous mixture and uniform temperature
• Low shear mixing protects sensitive products
• Mixes liquids with high % solids & high viscosities
• Eliminates need for costly electrical mixers that need to be explosion proof
• Pulsair industrial mixers will fit any size tank geometry or capacity (5 to 5 million gallons)


Pulsair Tank Mixing System can be adapted to tank shape or configuration :


Types of Tanks and vessels:
• 55-gallon drums
• Rail tank cars
• IBC/Tote tanks
• Large million gallon+ tanks
