  • Jet Mixer Systems

    Applications. Liquid jet mixers are jet pumps to mix and circulate liquids. The range of applications for liquid jet mixers is only limited by the viscosity of the liquid to be mixed. As a rule, jet mixers can be used in all cases where the liquid to be mixed can still be supplied by a centrifugal pump. Liquid jet mixers are mainly used in vessels, storage tanks and neutralization basins.
