In-line wet mixer processes all product without bypass

July 27, 2009
A high-speed in-line mixer that processes all product directly through a patented mixing head and can be configured to meet precise user requirements. The In-Line Wet Mixer features their modular shear-action mixing head, which forces all product through several stages of high-speed rotors and stators to achieve a consistent and totally repeatable finished product. Easily configured to match precise user viscosity requirements, this modular all-stainless steel mixer eliminates any possibility of product bypass. Assuring total particle size reduction and homogenization, the In-Line Wet Mixer can handle viscosities from 100 CPS on up with flow rates from 0.5 to 300 GPM; requiring dispersion down to one micron, with ±1% repeatability, depending upon the ingredients and application. The mixer’s special design incorporates from 1 to 12 shear-action zones. FDA, USDA, and 3A compliant systems are also available.
