3-10 HP Dispersers
For 55 Gal drum high speed dispersing there is no better value than the DP3 from Mixer Direct. Whether you are mixing coatings, cosmetics, or need some extra shear to get to a proper final solution, the DP3 high speed disperser has the power you need to get the job done. For products let than 15,000 cps you can calculate the required horsepower for your dissolver by dividing your required volume by 10. For example, a 50 Gal batch would normally require 5 HP to disperse. The dimensions on the high shear mixer allow for a 36” lift and a 40” diameter vessel.
The air lift moves smoothly in and out of position using a 3-way air valve, allowing the high speed dispersion blade to be placed at any position inside the mixing container. This is important if you are going to be dispersing products at a variety of viscosities.
Changing out the blade on the DP3 for your different chemistries can be done in less than 30 seconds. A huge variety of blades are available for the unit allowing for higher shear levels all the way to high pumping blades for high viscosity materials. Speeds are controlled by several methods:
- Electric dissolvers include a membrane button control w/ an RPM readout
- Explosion proof dispersers include a local control box w/ Start and Stop functionality and a speed control knob
Customizations and options on these units include container holders, slower or faster speed ranges, and lift heights. As with all of our mixers, Mixer Direct is committed to best in the industry lead times. Please contact our sales engineers if you have any questions on sizing or expedited delivery (812) 202-4047.
