High Shear Models

Inline High Shear Mixers
Our Inline mixers are available in many designs ranging from our single stage rotor-stator mixers to those that include many concentric rows of close tolerance intermeshing teeth. This range of designs enables a user to select the exact model for his particular process demands.

Single stage design - provides a cost efficient mixing solution for many applications. Available are four standard stator heads: round hole, square hole, slotted & fine screen. The single stage model is available in standard intermittent service design, and also a continuous duty design. All units are available with vessels and piping to allow for recirculation or continuous processing.

Slotted

Square

Fine Screen

Multi-stage design - These include two or four rows of rotating blades that nest inside a matching stator. The mix material enters through an inlet connection and is accelerated outward by centrifugal force. During each transit through the rotor-stator, the material is subjected to a succession of increasingly intense shearing events -until it finally exits downstream, or is recirculated for another pass through the mixer. Uniform droplets below 1 micron are possible using these designs.

Special Ultra High Shear designs include

Low Profile X design - The X-Series rotor and stator is comprised of many concentric rows of intermeshing teeth. Tolerances are very close, and the shear rates are extremely high. This unit operates at tip speeds up to 18,000 fpm. The X is a great choice for emulsions and dispersions that would otherwise have required more expensive homogenizers or colloid mills.

MegaShear design - The MegaShear rotor and stator is of a unique design, consisting of opposed, semi-circular, cylindrical grooves that are machined on both the rotor and stator faces. When a fluid is exposed to these opposed partial cylinders, a counter-flow is induced which splits and redirects the flow of the fluid upon itself to create an extremely high-turbulent collision phenomenon.
