The art of high shear mixing

February 14, 2013

The high-shear rotor/stator mixer, once relegated to a relatively narrow niche of mixing applications, has become a mainstay in many applications in the chemical process industries. The ability to apply intense shear and shorten mixing cycles gives these mixers broad appeal for applications that require immiscible fluids to be formulated into emulsions, or agglomerated powders to be dispersed into a liquid medium.

This white paper examines the various applications where high shear mixing can be used and discusses various things to be considered.
