Polymaster(TM) multi-stage static mixer uses a Gatlin distribution head to dilute, mix, and thoroughly activate emulsion, dispersion and solution polymers, including high molecular weight products, and is unaffected by fluctuating water pressure or dilution water ratio changes.
The Gatlin eliminates the need for costly booster pumps, and provides a rapid, high-energy initial introduction of polymer to water, followed by gentle, low-shear mixing. The rotating, slotted head operates at close tolerance to the inner wall of the mixing chamber to eliminate fish-eye and gel formation.
Rotor design creates a series of high-velocity vortexes without the use of turbine blades that can damage fragile polymer chains. Models, available at up to 50 gpm, dilute from 0.1 to 2% solution concentrations.

Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
