Liquid whistle

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Liquid whistles are a kind of static mixer which pass fluid at high pressure through an orifice and subsequently over a blade.[1] This subjects the fluid to high turbulent stresses and may result in mixing, emulsification,[2][3] deagglomeration and disinfection.
