    High Shear Mixer

    • Ideal for mixing water-to-oil, to form a light emulsion.
    • Suitable for products with a viscosity up to 2,000cP (mPas).
    • Batch sizes from 20L to 100L (dependent on viscosity).
    • 1 KW (up to 200L batch size at 1 cPs) or 2.2 KW (up to 300L batch size) mixer options, dependent on batch size and viscosity.
    • Standard time from placing an order to receiving the mixer is just 8 weeks.

    The Highest Quality You Can Rely On

    • All our mixers have 304 austenitic grade stainless steel construction, with 316L pharmaceutical grade wetted parts, to guarantee no product contamination occurs.
    • 316L grade stainless steel contains 2% molybdenum, to help resist corrosion from chlorides.
    • In heavily regulated industries, it is critical that we only supply the stated materials. We can supply XRF (X-Ray) Testing certificates to confirm the grade of stainless steel.
    • The typical maximum surface roughness finish of the 316L grade stainless steel parts is an exceptional 0.4 micrometers Ra.
    • All parts have crevice and pit-free surfaces and are polished throughout. This high level finishing allows the most thorough cleaning in the cleaning process.

    • Soft start and motor shroud, for operator protection.

    What Can We Offer For Your Production?

    So that our technical experts can identify the best solution for you, the following information would help us to understand your requirements:

    1. What products will you be mixing together (EG: Powder into liquid, oil into water, etc)
    2. The viscosity of the product at the start, middle and end of the mixing process
    3. Any potential difficulties dissolving one of the products?
    4. Should the mixing be conducted at a specific temperature (if needing a heated or chilled mixing solution)?
