High Speed Homogenizer Emulsifier are used for producing stable emulsions and very fine dispersion in micron range. high shear mixers can be used for sub micron range dispersion and emulsification (depending on the nature of the product). Trial on our pilot scale bach homogenizer or inline homogenizer is recommended for predicting the actual performance on the plant scale. Standard machines can be used for most of the application. However, a tailor made custom design may be recommended to meet customer special needs.
- Droplet size reduction
- Particle size reduction Emulsifying
- Dissolving De-agglomeration
- Shear pump
- Hydrating Powder / Liquid Mixing
Benefits and advantages
Slotted rotor moves inside a slotted stator at very high peripheral velocity which produces intense hydraulic shear which is required for emulsification and very fine and stable dispersion.
Fluids are drawn at centre of the high speed rotor where it experiences very high mechanical and hydraulic shear due to centrifugal force and small clearance between the stator & rotor
HIGH SPEED HIGH SHEAR MIXER / WET GRINDER
- Tremendous amount of shear is required for stable emulsion and fine dispersion. Hence all the impeller blades are designed at high tip speed and high shear rate.
- For low and medium viscosity fluid Premixing and (De-agglomeration of particles) to very fine and stable dispersion is a well known use.
- For high viscosity fluids co-axial or multi-shaft agitators are recommended with stator rotor or pump may be used for flow through inline homogenizer.
ADVANTAGES OF STATOR ROTOR TECHNOLOGY
- CIP (Cleaning In Place) design
- Reduces production time, Equipment cost and operating cost.
- Quickly reduces the agglomerates to very fine and stable dispersion
- Tremendous amount of energy input to the process fluid by specially designed impeller blades gives faster and superior result.
