A static mixer is available in a range of diameters to provide heating or cooling along with mixing. Fluitec Georg AG in Neftenbach, Switzerland (no U.S. office), added shell-and-tube heat exchangers to its traditional CSE-X static mixer, but used larger tubes and more of them than is traditional in heat exchangers, so as to keep the length relatively short. The mixer/heat exchanger, or Fluitec CSE-XR, comes in diameters from 0.5 in. to 25 in. and can withstand up to 5000 psi and 600 F temperatures. Since the CSE-XR was commercialized in 2001, it has been sold for foam cooling, reactive extrusion, and PUR foam for RIM. Tel: +41 (52) 305 00 40 . www.fluitec.ch
