Warm Mix System Equipment + Electrical

The heart of the ALmix Warm, Mix System is a scientifically engineered, fully hot oil jacketed static blending device.  The Static Blender installs directly into the existing AC injection pipe.  A variable frequency driven water pump is provided.  The pump is complete on a skidded base with water tank, water filter, flow meter fitted with optical encoder and calibration port.  Hosing complete with fittings and check valve is supplied for connection to the Static Blender.

The ALmix Warm Mix System unit is wired to a NEMA 4 panel mounted on the warm mix system housing the breaker and frequency drive for the water pump. A 6” touch screen PLC is provided to enter the percent of water and to control proportioning based upon the AC flow rate.
