For more than 35 years, The X-Grid or GX static mixers have been used successfully for the mixing and/or dispersing of viscous fluids. They are capable of mixing materials with equal or very different viscosities and volumetric flow rates.
The Type GX mixing element creates a very high degree of mixing in a short length. Each mixing element has a length-to-diameter ratio of approximately 1.0. A typical mixing element assembly ranges from 2-mixing elements for simple applications to as many as 20-mixing elements for very difficult applications.
Applications for the GX mixing elements include the extrusion of plastics, polymer and fibers synthesis, and the general processing of viscous materials such as Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR), Adhesives, Polyurethanes, Sealants, Polyol, Foods, etc.

The table below shows the superior X-Grid mixing achieved over substantially shorter mixing lengths compared to helical mixers
Mix fluids with similar viscosity
High and low viscosity fluids (1 million : 1)
Mix fluids with large differences in volumetric ratio (1,000 : 1)
Disperse and mix polymers with blowing agents
Two (2) component viscous materials such as Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR), adhesives, polysulfide, sealants, epoxy resins, polyurethanes, etc.
Plastics Injection Moulding (GXR)
Polymer manufacture and processing
The mixing elements may be safely pressed out of the housing by pushing on the support ring which avoids any damage to the mixing grid (GXR)
The GXR Double-Roof Disk static mixer is an X-Grid crossing bar structure with an integral ring around the mixing element grid. It is used extensively for molten plastics injection molding and extrusion and for the processing of high viscous polymers and resins.
The entire unit is of monolithic cast construction (single molten metal pour) which makes the unit virtually indestructible. The GXR is considered a high performance design that homogenizes viscous materials in a short length (Licensee of Bayer AG).
The GX static mixer is constructed of X-Grid crossing bars. It has been used successfully for over 25 years for the mixing and/or dispersion of viscous fluids.
The GX static mixer is considered a high performance design that homogenizes viscous materials in a short length and is capable of mixing materials with equal or very large differences in viscosity and volumetric flow rates.
Also available in plastic disposable version GXP
The HT Helical Twist static mixer is constructed of alternating-twist helical spirals. This bowtie inline mixer pioneered the motionless mixing industry over 40 years ago and is used for the mixing of liquids, gases and slurries.
The HT static mixer is considered a medium performance design that is best suited for small diameter simple mixing and heat transfer applications.
