High Speed Mixing Processes
Our conventional Single and Multi-Stage Rotor/Stator Mixers play important roles in emulsification processes. They are capable of producing simple or complex sub-micron emulsions.
Rotor-stator mixers comprise of a rotor that turns at high speed within a stationary stator. Single stage, dual stage, four stage and complex intermeshing rows of concentric teeth are all available. The basic designs operate at speed of approx. 4000 fpm, whereas the ultra high intensity models, operate at speeds to over 18,000 fpm.
Our high shear rotor-stator mixers are many times more effective than conventional disk type high speed dispersers for low viscosity applications up to approx. 10,000 cps. As viscosity increases the rotor -stator designs are often combined with anchor or turbine agitators to extend their processing range.
View the Emulsification Droplet Data report we have included (displayed above) to learn more about the capabilities of the various designs that are available. The MegaShear is not shown, however it's capabilities are beyond those of the X-Series model which is included in the graph.
Designs are available for bench-top and production operations. They range from 1/2 hp to over 250 hp and are supplied in batch and inline configurations.
