Hello, fellow Stressers!!!

Have anyone have experience in mixing tee design.

Just curious how does it looks like. Just heard of it but haven't seen one.

This is one solution, depending on the outcome of CFD coupled with thermo-mechanical analysis.

From my previous experience, there are some criteria (I forgot the delta T) between the cold fluid and hot fluid where this is a concern and detailed analysis to be performed otherwise use this mixing tee design. A simplified calculation based on the "beam on elastic foundation theory" is also available.

Cheers!!!

The mixing tee is not a piping component. It is an inline element with inlet/outlet and a side connection for the fluid that will be mixed with the main fluid. There are some non moving blades inside that help mixing the two fluids. I guess it is not really something you may get help in this forum.

Thanks Dan for clarifying.

I thought it was a piping component that is the solution for this high thermal gradient between two streams.

If anyone has a picture of it, would be nice to see it.

But if it's proprietary and not for public use, please don't.

Cheers!!!

Sometimes will be labeled as Special Piping Item, but you will still have to buy as it would be an equipment item I guess. Sometimes it is necessary to have the calculations as you specified due to thermal gradient, but again, this is a very narrow field. Not sure that you will find your answers here.

Simply google "mixing tee design" and you will find a lot of info.

Thanks dan. actually when I google it, I found many technical articles related to this. Anyway, I'll just cross the bridge when I get there. No real job of this sort at the moment. Just preparing myself in case I encounter one.

Cheers!!!
