Ultra high shear mixing and deagglomeration

July 2, 2012

Deagglomeraton of solid particles suspended in liquid entails many hours of mixing and multiple passes through milling equipment. In other cases, it requires the use of very expensive but low-throughput high pressure homogenizers. Typically a production bottleneck, cleaning and product changeover at this stage of the mixing process is often labor-intensive and time-consuming. A new rotor/stator mixer design with unique geometries, multi-stage configurations and faster tip speeds could improve the process. Learn more in this technology paper.
