Signs That a Mix Head Needs Repair

A mix head kept too long in service without inspection and repair can cause foaming within lines and components and costly downtime.

Many signs of mix head failure are unmistakable. Cross contamination of chemical and hydraulic lines. Oil and chemical leaks from nozzles. Sticking or broken pistons.

Other signs are less obvious. Failing or incorrectly applied mix head components can cause other process problems, such as inconsistent operating pressures, chemical waste and high scrap rates. Our process experts can help you determine whether a mix head is causing your production problems.

The Mix Head Repair Process

Once we receive your used mix head, our trained technicians disassemble, clean and assess its condition. If you have requested component or technology upgrades, our polyurethane process experts will work directly with you to determine the most cost-effective way to attain the mix head performance you need.

After this analysis is complete, we will fax or e-mail a written mix head repair quote to you, along with an estimate of the time it will take to complete the repairs. Work begins as soon as we receive your purchase order.

Our standard mix head repair service includes:

  • Complete disassembly and cleaning of the mix head
  • Inspection of all potential wear points and parts
  • Replacement or repair of worn or damaged parts
  • Reassembly of the mix head with new seals sized to match any new or repaired components
  • Complete hydraulic testing of each mix head to ensure seal and piston performance.
