The World Leader in Lubricant Blending Systems

Lubricant Blending Process

In 1983, Texaco installed what became the first Pulsair mixing system.  In a large lubricant blending tank, Seattle, WA, a series of accumulator plates were installed and connected to pneumatic controller outside the tank.  The "pulse air' mixer was turned and the tank was fully blended in less than 90-minutes - it used to take over 12-hours minimum.  In addition to cutting the blending time, Pulsair reduced the energy consumption by over 90% and significantly reduced maintenance.

Since then, Pulsair mixing system has become the world leader for fast, energy efficient and low maintenance mixing and blending system for lubricants, fuels and other petro-chemical products.   Pulsair's powerful and innovative mixing technology allows customers to significantly reduce energy costs, reduce maintenance and can be designed to fit any size or number of tanks.

Whether you are blending base stock, additives, thinning and cutting heavy fuel emulsions or keeping storage tanks a constant temperature, Pulsair has the right solution for you.  The Pulsair mixing technology has been proven to be dramatically better than older conventional mixing methods.

Pulsair mixing systems are used extensively by the some of the world's well know petroleum customers.  Pulsair has thousands of mixing installation in over 40-countries.
