What Mix Nozzle Problems Does BTmix Solve?

If you’re a consumer of disposable static mixers, a run-of-the-mill motionless mixing enthusiast, or just an old mixpac pack rat, the following dialogue has probably effervesed in your mind: Golly gee. The only thing I love more than epoxy resin gun dispensers is, go figure, dispensing epoxy resin out of my epoxy gun. But I sure do wish […] View

Does BTmix actually manufacture in Reno, Nevada?

Unfortunately nowadays, businesses that don’t actually manufacture in America try to turn a profit through deception, by luring their customers into thinking that their products are still “made in America.” What usually happens is businesses who are based in America position themselves as manufacturing in American, too–when they really outsource their production to places like China as […] View

Making Affordable Static Mixers Locally

If you haven’t heard of plastic, disposable static mixers, maybe you’ve heard of “Small Business Saturday.” It’s a holiday of sorts, but not in the sense that the 4th of July is a holiday.

Static Mixers outlets: Stepped, Tapered, or Luer Lock

In this last post on what resin mixing nozzles are, we spelled out the difference between laminar and turbulent flow. Static mixers of all sorts are known in the engineering world (a scary place, if you’ve ever been there) in terms of laminar flow, which, if we remember, is consistent throughout.  Turbulent is characterized by chaotic flow […] View

What a Disposable Static Mixer “Is”: Laminar versus Turbulent Flow

Recently, a question was directed at us concerning a disposable static mixer’s exact nature, which is a question sometimes put to us in this way by our friends: “What do you again?” Although the business of manufacturing disposal static mixers is, to put it mildly, a small niche industry, it is an industry nonetheless; and […] View
