SALES DESIGN MANUFACTURING SERVICE.
Mixtec – Western Engineering offers a complete solution for your mixing needs. We can review your mixing process requirements based on information about tank sizes, product viscosities, specific gravity of products and how the process operates, to come up with a mixing concept and quote for your mixer.
Our designs are backed by computer programs that guide us to a sound engineering solution that ensures mixing throughout the tank, the suspension of any solids off the bottom, that shafts are run below critical speeds and that stresses in the components are within allowable limits. This means the customer gets a mixer that works first time and is designed to give reliable service for many years.
The engineering team has access to the latest Mixtec technology and most mixers are designed in 3D CAD so that we can supply mixer models to our customers. This allows you to see what you are getting and that it fits correctly into the tank. This software also allows us to do FEA (finite element analysis) on any mixers or machine assemblies to check stress and deflection of components. When unusual applications arise, we have access to CFD (computational fluid dynamics) services to confirm the flow within tanks. You can be assured your mixer is designed by competent, well trained and skilled engineers.
All mixers are manufactured in-house at our Avondale manufacturing plant. Direct communication from sales and the design office to the workshop, ensures that a tight control is maintained on the whole manufacturing process. The workshop is equipped with the machines to produce custom designed mixers and to mass produce stock components of impellers and couplings. With CNC mills and lathes, large lathes for those long mixer shafts, welding equipment for steel, stainless steel and specialty metals, a straightening jig to ensure that the shaft runs true, Mixtec -Western Engineering is equipped to supply your mixer with complete control of manufacturing and quality assurance over the end product.
Most of our customers find that their mixer runs for many years with little to no maintenance, but should you require repairs or spare parts, Mixtec – Western Engineering can supply a full rebuild, repair or spare parts service. With every mixer manufactured having a Mixtec tag with the job number on it, we can track all computerised documentation to know exactly what parts went into your mixer. A replacement part can be sourced from spares or manufactured to suit.
