SPX Flow Technology APV Cavitator in-line mixer

Thursday, 14 November, 2013 | Supplied by: SPX Flow Inc



The APV Cavitator in-line mixer is a modular process technology which forms part of SPX’s family of mixing and dispersing equipment. It enables heating of liquids without scale build-up and is claimed to provide solutions to difficult mixing and dispersing challenges for food and beverage processing.

Named for the effect of shockwaves produced from the collapse of ‘controlled cavitation’ bubbles, the APV Cavitator works by taking a fluid into the machine housing, where it is passed through a controlled cavitation field created by the reactor’s spinning rotor.

The design uses the force of cavitation in a controlled manner, rather than using impellers or blades to process materials, increasing the mass transfer rate. Additionally, the cavitation effects are achieved without damage to metal surfaces.

The machine can be used for a range of sanitary applications ranging from pasteurisation to low-pressure homogenisation. It is designed for easy disassembly and CIP and has been manufactured to meet 3-A standards.
