The VORTEXPROM CMD35 installation is designed to implement the patented technology of "cold" stream mixing of lubricating oils at large blending enterprises with a volume of tanks (reactors) from 5 m 3 and more.
CMD stands for Cold Mix Device. The catalyst for the mixing process in the classical production of commercial lubricating oils is an increase in temperature. In the working area of the VORTEXPROM CMD35 reactor, other processes occur that are a catalyst for the mixing reaction. The main ones are: hydrodynamic cavitation, intensive grinding and mixing in the stram (in which the contact area of the components to be mixed with base oils increases instantly), acoustic cavitation, the creation of high local pressure on the material, local temperature increase when cavitation bubbles collapse, electromagnetic processing.
The process of streaming mixing takes place in a closed-type system. This process is eco-friendly for both humans and the environment.
The installation consists of a flow-type reactor unit, a reactor control and cooling system unit The installation of VORTEXPROM CMD35 model with a throughput of up to 35 m3/hour, is recommended for use in production tanks (reactors) with a volume of 5 m3. and more. For smaller tanks, the VORTEXPROM CMD5 installation model with a capacity of 5 m3/hour is offered.
Throughput capacity 20-35 m3/hour m3/hour (depends on the characteristics of the material, viscosity, density, etc.)
AC power supply: — Frequency, 50-60 Hz;
— Voltage, 380+-20 V;
— Maximum power, 25 kW/hour;
— Average power, 20 kW/hour;
— Output voltage to the reactor, 380+-20 V;
— Average current to the reactor, 180 A.
—The main advantage is a reduction in the production cycle time by at least two times, and a most — by ten times, since the production cycle in manufacturing depends not only on the mixing time, but also on the time of filling the container with the components. Therefore, the reduction of the production cycle time leads to the fact that the overall efficiency of the enterprise increases without building extra structures and without buying expensive heated tanks, pump equipment and strapping to them.
—The second advantage is the energy efficiency and environmental friendliness of the mixing process. Let's compare it with classic blending, in which it is necessary to maintain the temperature for mixing components from 60 to 80 degrees C for 6-12 hours. To heat 1 m3 of oil from 15 to 65 degrees C, about 20 kW / hour of electricity is needed and then it is necessary to maintain this temperature for a long time. On average, 40 kW/hour of electricity is consumed per 1 m3 of the finished product (when heated by electric heating elements). Blending companies are trying to save energy resources, and they have to heat the tanks with gas or steam, but this is not always possible, and the savings are about 30-60%. When streaming "cold" blending, it is necessary to heat the mixed composition to the minimum input temperature of the components, which is indicated by the manufacturer of these components. Most often, this temperature does not exceed 40 degrees C. To heat 1 m3 of oil from 15 to 40 degrees C, about 9 kW/hour of electricity is needed. Next, it is necessary to pass the entire composition through the working area of the reactor of the VORTEXPROM CMD35 installation on a closed cycle. If we take the minimum capacity of 20 m3/hour and the average consumption of the installation of 20 kW/hour, then for 1 m3 of the mixed composition, we will consume no more than 1 kW/hour of electricity. The energy savings are at least 75% if the heating was carried out by electric heating elements.
— The installation is easy to maintain and operate, for the working staff it is only needed to press 2 buttons "start" and "stop", or the installation can be controlled from external automatic equipment.
— The low price of the equipment in compare with its utility at the enterprise will pleasantly surprise businessmen. After all, the company will have only benefits from saving on energy resources.
In 2020, as part of the implementation of the RFBR scientific project No. 18-38-00275 at the Research Institute of Chemistry of the National Research University, tests were conducted on the pretreatment of the organic fraction of MSW (OF-MSW) in an experimental cold mixing plant produced by VORTEXPROM RUS LLC for subsequent fermentation by solid-phase anaerobic fermentation to produce biogas. Pretreatment in CMD5 allowed increasing the methane yield by 15.8%.
The obtained results showed the prospects of using CMD5 to increase the efficiency of anaerobic digestion with biogas production.
