Multi-Shaft Mixer for Pastes, Gels, Slurries

April 14, 2011

New VersaMix Multi-Shaft Mixer is designed for producing pastes, gels, slurries and other viscous formulations. This mixer design is composed of three independently-driven agitators working in tandem. The high-speed disperser quickly draws powders into the liquid batch through a powerful vortex. The rotor/stator carries out a number of tasks depending on the product being mixed – it can break down agglomerates, accelerate homogenization, or prepare fine droplets in an emulsion. Finally, the low-speed anchor promotes bulk flow and uniform batch temperature while scraping the vessel sidewalls and bottom.
