NTE Process – in collaboration with Semi-Bulk Systems – provides Vacucam® as a solution for powder-liquid in-line mixing. Vacucam® is a special ejector-mixer for completely dispersing powders into liquids.

Conditioned powder is conveyed into the mixer by a near-perfect vacuum, which is created when pressurized fluid is discharged as a high-velocity, hollow jet into which the powder is drawn.

The Vacucam® system achieves high-speed, instantaneous and complete wetting by bringing together conditioned powder and highly atomized liquid from two separate streams, incorporating particles of liquid with particles of powder. The reactive surface areas of both the powder and the liquid are maximized before intimate contact is actually made. The result is consistently uniform, superior wetting without the agglomeration or “clumping” usually associated with conventional mixing methods.

NTE Process can design and integrate the Vacucam® in-line system to feed finished slurry into multiple locations, according to your needs, such as storage or mixing tanks. The entire process can be physically separated and remotely controlled. The ejector-mixer can be mounted directly on tanks or integrated with an existing process.

Since the Vacucam® system achieves high-speed, instantaneous and complete mixing, it makes it perfect for fluid mixing too. Highly atomized liquids can be brought together from two separate systems for batch to batch consistency and uniform mixing.

Not only Vacucam is the most effective system available for conveying, mixing and dispersing powders in liquids, but is also able to optimize process efficiency and reduce production costs.

It is a versatile product that guarantees the complete dispersion of numerous products including soda ash, cobalt, manganese, lithium hydroxide, powdered activated carbon, but also powdered whey, gelatin, pectins, gums, starch, sugar, sweeteners. , thickeners, carbonates and other ingredients used for chemical production.

Finally, Vacucam® is also suitable for FGD processes in power plants, removing SOx, mercury and the reducing NOx.
