Inline high shear mixers.

Inline high shear mixers are designed for general purpose mixing, powder wet-out, particle size reduction, solubilization, emulsification and homogenization. This type of device features a four-blade rotor running within a close tolerance fixed stator at tip speeds in the range of 3,000-4,000 ft/min, with ultra-high shear designs running at tip speeds over 11,000 ft/min. It creates mechanical and hydraulic shear by continuously drawing product components into the rotor and expelling them radially through the openings in the stator. Interchangeable rotor/stator generators provide flexibility to adapt to a variety of product recipes. Typically installed as part of a recirculation loop, inline high shear mixers are generally capable of pumping low to medium viscosity products without the need for an auxiliary pump. These mixers are simple to clean in place and are thus ideal for process lines that require frequent changeover from one formulation to another. A simple valve can divert finished product downstream or switch instantly from one source vessel to another. Shown is a 10 HP inline high shear mixer connected to a 200-liter process vessel complete with piping, tri-clamp connections and butterfly valves. * Charles Ross & Son Company, Hauppauge, NY 11788. www.mixers.com or call 631-234-0500
