jet mixer

1. n. [Drilling]
A mixing system used to mix dry powder materials with a base liquid, such as cement slurry or drilling muds. A funnel for the dry powder is mounted above a profiled bowl that incorporates one or more jets through which the liquid is pumped. The venturi effect created by the jets draws the powder into the turbulent stream, providing a rapid and efficient mixing action.
Synonyms: jet
