Industrial agitator and mixing specialist Mixtec has obtained ISO 9001:2015 certification – an internationally recognised standard for implementing and maintaining a quality management system.

Adding ISO 9001:2015 certification to its list of accolades, strengthens the 38-year company’s commitment to its customers and quality policies, says MD Jonathan Lyndon.

“Anticipating the needs and demands of our customers, being ISO 9001:2015 certified, allows us to demonstrate our commitment to providing high-quality products and services in the mixing and agitation industry,” he says.

Founded in Johannesburg in 1984, the family-owned business has grown into a global organisation with seven manufacturing plants. The group’s partners are based in the US, South Africa, Australia, the UK, Malaysia, Chile and New Zealand.

Each Mixtec office has its own research and development (R&D) department, as well as design, engineering and commissioning personnel who are trained to apply the latest fluid mixing technology for every application and installation. The different specialities of each Mixtec office allow the group to tap into a wealth of design experience and expertise, expanding its overall knowledge base and enabling it to satisfy customer needs.

Focusing on continuous improvement to development and technology has been the core ideology behind the company’s global success over nearly four decades, Lyndon tells Engineering News & Mining Weekly.

“Mixtec prides itself on ensuring efficient designs, that are robust and economical, and has been involved in various process technology developments.”

The company’s impeller technology and design techniques have improved performance and efficiency during gold leaching, carbon-in-pulp absorption, biological leaching, cyanide destruction/detox, conditioning, solvent extraction, attrition scrubbing and water treatment, to name a few.

“No other industry has benefited more from Mixtec’s ability to refurbish and improve upon existing agitators than mining and refining, producing not only power savings, but also increasing the operational life of existing agitators,” says Lyndon.

Since the mining industry has many varied process conditions and agitators seldom perform just one simple duty; it is a priority for Mixtec to ensure its clients are aware of the advantages and limitations of each specialised mixing unit. This includes new impeller technology and its capabilities in the reduction of the loading of the agitator drive assembly and associated structures.

Given the variety of applications and processes for mixers and agitators, Mixtec offers a range of custom configurations, resulting in its agitators being employed throughout the world in a host of projects, including gold, copper, zinc, lithium, water treatment and phosphate plants.

The company continues to invest in future R&D to ensure its products are constantly evaluated for improvements that will enhance processes, efficiency, and operations. This is achieved through its R&D departments, as well as trained design, engineering, and commissioning personnel who are specialists in fluid handling applications.

Moving forward, Mixtec South Africa aims to continue to retain its core values of customer satisfaction, while producing state-of-the-art technology, design, and equipment, setting itself apart from its competitors.
