Magnesium Hydroxide Slurry Storage Mixing Systems

Pulsair System’s proven mixing process is the industries best mixing solution to keep magnesium hydroxide slurries homogeneous and uniformly suspended in storage tanks.  Improper mixing (usually top-entry mixers or recirculating pumps) will only push the slurry sideways or down based on the directional flow of the impeller blades.  The Pulsair mixing process starts at the tank bottom and works by scouring the tank floor and they lifting the magnesium hydroxide slurry to the liquid surface with sequentially injected bursts of compressed air.  Pulsair mixing systems can mix any liquid level in the tank and there is no extra motor mounted supports needed or any fear of clogging up recirculating pumps.  Pulsair has the best slurry agitation process for keeping magnesium hydroxide slurries suspended and uniformly mixed in magnesium hydroxide storage tanks.  The Pulsair mixing process also works to resuspend settled magnesium hydroxide slurries in rail tank cars (see video clip below)

Challenges of magnesium hydroxide storage:

  • Slurry needs proper agitation for uniform suspension of particles in order to remain homogeneous

  • Slurry tends to settle and coagulate to different materials

  • Inadequate mixing leads to slurry plugging and solid accumulation

  • Using the wrong mixing system will cost more to operate and maintain

Benefits of using Pulsair for magnesium hydroxide slurry agitation:

  • Efficient ‘bottom-up’ mixing process keeps magnesium hydroxide slurries uniformly suspended in any tank

  • ZERO in-tank maintenance – no flushing of suction or discharge line as is the case with recirculating pumps

  • Mix 100% of the tank with no baffles or dead zones

  • Mix at any liquid level for better tank utilization

  • Adjustable speed and power for maximum efficiency

  • Proven mixing technology with 30+ years of experience & thousands of installations

  • Custom engineered to fit any tank size, configuration or any number of tanks
