MIXER FOR VISCOUS LIQUIDS Filed June 8. 1960 Horace f. 7720moJ domes M #0207:

INVENTORJ BY/MV GZMZ Patented May 14, 1963 3,089,683 MIXER FOR VISCOUS LIQUIDS Horace F. Thomas and James M. Adams, both of R0. Box 10262, Houston, Tex. Filed June 8, 1960, Ser. No. 34,742 2 Claims. (Cl. 259-4) The present invention relates to a new and improved device for mixing viscous liquids and more particularly to a device for mixing a liquid plastic such as an epoxy resin with a liquid catalyst or promoter such as an amine compound.

Heavy viscous liquids, that is those ranging from a viscosity of to 1,000 poise, have in the past, been quite diflicult to mix together when such viscous liquids are of different viscosities. In endeavoring to mix liquids of this type there is a tendency for each liquid to retain its own identity and a result similar to that of the Well known Stripe toothpaste is obtained. Prior art devices proposed to mix such viscous liquids are expensive, complicated and often only accomplish a partial mixing and do not keep the fluids continually flowing thereby creating dead spots in the mixing machinery. Such dead spots or places where the fluids are, in effect, retained result in a hardening of the fluids and a consequent stoppage or clogging of the mixing apparatus.

It is therefore an important object of the present invention to provide a new and improved device for mixing viscous liquids which is not only simple to operate and economical to make and use but which also is operable free of dead spots and thoroughly mixes heavy viscous liquids of different viscosities.

Another object of the present invention is to provide a new and improved mixer for viscous liquids which thoroughly mixes together such viscous liquid by simulated agitation without employing any moving parts.

Still another object of the present invention is to provide a new and improved mixer for viscous liquids whereby viscous liquids may be introduced into the mixer from separate streams and which liquids will be discharged from such mixer in a thoroughly mixed single stream.

A further object of the present invention is to provide a new and improved mixer for viscous liquids whereby the application of pressure over, a particular area within the mixer forces the mixing of such viscous liquids.

Other objects and advantages of the present invention will become more readily apparent from a consideration of the following description and drawings wherein:

FIG. 1 is a sectional view of the device of the present invention;

FIG. 2 is a view taken along line 22 of FIG. 1;

FIG. 3 is a view taken along line 33 of FIG. 1; and

FIG. 4 is a view taken along line 44 of FIG. 1.

Referring now to the drawings, the device or apparatus of the present invention is generally designated at M and includes a body 5 having a lower chamber 7 therein, and a stationary mixer or mixing means 9 within said chamber. and extending substantially the length of the body 5 is a longitudinal bore 10 for receiving fluid discharged from the mixer 9. A diffuser 11 is positioned in the longitudinal bore 10 and has a baffle or atomizing means 12 on one end thereof which is in communication with the mixer 9. An inlet assembly indicated generally at 15 is positioned at one end of the body 5 and includes the openings 16 and 17 for introducing a plastic and a promoter or catalyst, respectively. An outlet device 18 is positioned at the other end of the body 5 from the inlet assembly 15 and provides an exit for the plastic compound after it has been mixed. The details of the invention will be further described hereinafter.

In communication with the mixing means 9 The mixing device M of the present invention is adapted to be used in carrying out the method disclosed in our United States patent application Serial No. 34,755 filed June 8, 1960, and it may be used with the spray apparatus disclosed in our United States patent application Serial No. 34,689 filed June 8, 1960, now Patent No. 3,032,278. The apparatus M may be used with viscous fluids having a viscosity ranging from 5 to 1,000 poise and is particularly adapted for use with a 100% non-volatile resin such as an epoxy resin, and an aliphatic or aromatic amine. Such epoxy resins normally have a viscosity ranging from 800 to 2,000 centipoise and the aliphatic or aromatic amines normally have a viscosity ranging from 250 to 1,200 centipoise. The resulting mixture has a viscosity ranging from 1,000 to 1,200 centipoise.

The agitation of such heavy viscous fluids of different viscosities is initially obtained with the apparatus M by the use of the mixing means 9, and further agitation is then obtained with atomizing means 12 and the diffuser 11. In the preferred form, the body 5 is principally formed of body portions 5a and 5b which are connected together as will be explained. Both of the portions 5a and 5b preferably have an outer hexagonal configuration to facilitate assembling and disassembling (FIGS. 2-4). It should be noted however that the external surface of the body 5 may be cylindrical, octagonal, square or of any other desired configuration.

The chamber 7 in the body portion 5b of the body 5 is in communication with the longitudinal bore 10 and is in effect an enlarged portion of such longitudinal bore -10. The internal surface 7a of the chamber 7 is preferably cylindrical and has all rounded or smooth surfaces. In the lower end portion 5b of the body 5 are the openings 16 and 17 of the inlet assembly 15, in which the couplings 19 and 20 are threadedly engaged therein, respectively. Suitable hoses 21 and 22 are connected to the couplings 19 and 20, respectively, for introducing the plastic or epoxy resin and the catalyst or promoter into the chamber 7. The plastic or catalyst may be introduced through either of the openings 16 and 17 as desired; however for illustrative purposes only, the plastic is introduced through the opening '16 and the catalyst through the opening 17.

The mixing means 9 includes a non-cylindrical member 9a adapted to be positioned in the chamber 7 of the lower portion 5b of the body 5. The member Qa has a plurality of circumferentially and longitudinally spaced openings or passages 9b therein, such passages 9b being in communication with the chamber 7 and the opening or chamber 25 in the member 9a. The end of the member 9a is closed so that the tangential passages 9b are the only means of communication from. the chamber 7 into the internal chamber 25. The other end 9d of the member 9a is open to the chamber 25 and is formed with a flange 9e which is positioned between the adjacent ends of the body sections 5a and 5b. External threads 9 on the member 9a engage with internal threads 50 on the portion 51) of the body 5 to secure the member 9a to the body portion 5b. The member 9a also has internal threads 9g which engage threads 5e on the body portion 5a for securing the member 9a to the body portion 5a. The member 9a thus serves as the connector for the body sections 5a and 5b.

Thus, the mixing means or mixer 0 may be quickly and easily placed in the body 5 or removed therefrom. This greatly facilitates cleaning and repairs and replacements if needed.

As the liquid or fluids which will normally be used or mixed in the apparatus M are of relatively high viscosity, ranging from 5 to 1,000 poise, no additional sealing means has been found necessary to seal between the members 5a, 9a and 5b; however, if desired suitable sealing means can be employed without departing from the scope of the invention.

The outer shape of the member 9a is substantially rectangular as best seen in FIG. 2 and the corners 9/1 of the member 9a are rounded so as to fit substantially adjacent the internal surface 7a of the body portion 5b. The result is that the chamber 7 is substantially filled with the mixing means 9 except for the small areas 7b between the internal surface 7a of the chamber 7 and the external surface 9111 of the member 9a. Liquids introduced into the hoses 21 and 22 pass through the openings 16 and 17, respectively, into the chamber 7, into the areas 7b, through the openings or passages 9b and into the chamber 25 which is in communication with the bore of the body 5. The action of the heavy viscous liquids in passing through the openings 9b is one of a simulated agitation and a circular mixing motion is imparted to such liquids thereby initially mixing the liquids together. The

openings 9b are formed in the mixer 9 in such means that they are tangential with the walls of the chamber 25. This arrangement of the openings can best be seen in FIG. 2 of the drawings. Such tangential flow of the liquids results in the circular or spiral motion of the liquids as the liquids are moved by external pressure. The mixing means 9 has no moving parts which makes it considerably more economical to manufacture and to operate as well as easier and more effectively to clean.

In order to further assure that the plastic and promoter liquids are thoroughly intermixed together, a diffusion means or diffuser 11 is positioned in the longitudinal bore 10 of the body 5a which creates a turbulent flow of the liquids thereby insuring a complete mixture of the liquids prior to the ejection of such liquids through the outlet means 18. The longitudinal bore 10 has a decreased or diminished portion 10:: which is in communication with the chamber in the mixing means 9. Such decreased portion 100 forms a shoulder 1011 which serves as a stop for the diffusion means 11. The baffle or atomizing means 12 which may be an integral part of the diffuser 11 or may be constructed separately therefrom rests on the shoulder 10b and contains a plurality of relatively small openings or passages 12a which are in communication with the bore portion 10a and which atomize the liquids as they are forced from the portion 10a into the diffusion means 11. Such atomization or screening breaks the liquids into sufiiciently small enough particles so that they are easily mixed together as they are forced through the diffuser 11.

The diffuser 11 comprises a longitudinal bar which has been milled out or has been otherwise formed to provide a plurality of discs 11a connected together by a plurality of projections or connecting members 11b. The internal area 11c defined by the projections 11b is best seen in FIG. 4. The outer surfaces or edges 11d of the discs 1111 are substantially adjacent and preferably in slidable contact with the internal surface 5d of the body portion 5a. The member 11 may be easily positioned in or removed from the body portion 50. Each of the discs 11a has an opening l le which permits passage of the fluids or liquids from one group of projections 11b to the next group of projections 11b in a wave-like motion or undulating movement so as to create a turbulent flow in the fluids. The opening He in each of the discs l la is relatively small, and the openings ile are arranged in such manner that the opening He in each successive disc 11a is located approximately 180 from the opening He in the cylindrical rib 11a preceding it. Such arrangement creates an undulating motion in the liquids as they are forced through such openings 11e which completes the mixing of the viscous liquids. The diffuser 11 has an enlarged portion 11f connected therto or formed integrally therewith which has threads 11g thereon which are engaged with the internal threads 5 on the body portion 5a. Again, because of the relatively high viscosity of the fluids mixed in the apparatus M, no additional seal means has been found to be necessary, but suitable seal means may be inserted between the members 11 and 511, if desired or if found necessary with lower viscosity fluids. A longitudinal opening or bore 1111 of the diffuser '11 is in communication with the outlet device 18. The outlet device 18 includes a coupling 26 which is engaged in a threaded opening 11j in the end portion 11] of the diffuser 11. The unitary construction of the diffuser 11 allows it to be readily positioned in the body 5 or removed there from.

In the usual operation of the device M of the present invention, a plastic or heavy viscous liquid such as an epoxy resin is pumped through the hose 21, through the opening 16 and into the chamber 7, and a catalyst or promoter such as an aliphatic or aromatic amine is pumped through the hose 22, through the opening 17 and into the chamber 7 where an initial mixing of the two liquids takes place. As the fluids or liquids are pumped from the chamber 7 through the passages 9b and into the chamber 25 and agitation of the liquids is simulated, the liquids are substantially mixed together. The device M of the present invention could be constructed largely as the mixing means 9 by lengthening the means 9 and eliminating the diffusion means 11 and baffle means 12; however, such a construction does not always provide a complete or thorough mixing of the plastic and the catalyst. In addition it is possible that a continuous flow of some small amounts of the liquids would not occur which would result in a hardening of such small amounts and clogging of the mixer 9. To assure that the fluids as they are pumped out of the outlet device 18 are thoroughly mixed together, the fluids or liquids are pumped from the chamber 25 through the bafile means 12 and the diffusion means 11. The drops o-r particles of the fluid mixture from the chamber 25 are atomized or reduced in size as they pass through the small holes 12a of the atomiziug means 12. A turbulent undulating flow is caused by the forcing of the liquids through the openings 11a and across the projections 11b of the diffusion means I l so that the drops or particles of both fluids are thoroughly mixed together. The use of the diffusion means 11 and the bafile means 12 assures a thorough mixing of the plastic and the catalyst prior to ejection from the device M without requiring any moving parts in the device M.

It can be appreciated that the device of the present invention provides a new and improved mixer for viscous fluids, especially epoxy resins and promoters or hardening agents, which device thoroughly mixes such fluids together, has no moving parts and which may be readily assembled or disassembled for ease in cleaning, repair and replacement.

The actual effectiveness of the mixer has been tested by mixing a black epoxy resin and a white catalyst and viceversa. The plastic mixture emerging from the outlet means 18 is a thoroughly mixed stream of gray plastic liquid. The viscosity of such plastic mixture normally ranges from about 1000 to 1200 centipoises. It will be understood, however, that the invention is not limited to use with liquids of such viscosity ranges.

The foregoing disclosure and description of the invention is illustrative and explanatory thereof and various changes in the size, shape and materials, as Well as in the details of the illustrated construction may be made within the scope of the appended claims without departing from the spirit of the invention.
