Gatlin distribution head

Gatlin distribution head

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.
