High Shear Agitators

Mixer Direct's line of High Shear Mixers are customized for each application.  Our engineers have built systems to deliver high shear mixing in a beaker up to dispersers that process hundreds of gallons at a time.

The most common high shear mixer is a disperser. Dispersers use dispersion blades turning at high RPMs to pulverize a liquid batch. Depending on the viscosity, Mixer Direct has a host of high-speed dispersers to convert different percentages of the energy provided by the motor to shear or to promote liquid movement.  Without a correct understanding of that ratio, you can have a high shear mixer but your batch can be irregular in its grind because of dead spots.  Some of the high-speed dispersers and blades of our new ultra shear line have performed so incredibly well that they have eliminated the need to mill coatings after dispersion.

High shear mixing can also be accomplished using three roll mills, horizontal and vertical ball mills, sand mills, and a host of other methodologies.  Let us help you determine what your process needs, call us at (812) 202-4047 or contact us through the website and we'll get back with you the same day with information on our high-shear mixers and high-speed dispersers.

Electric High Shear Disperser

3HP Electric High Speed Disperser for up to 20 Gal Containers with Air Lift

DP2030VBA $4,340

The DP2 line from MixerDirect handles all of your dispersing needs from 5-20 Gals. Producing a high speed dissolver in this range of volume has traditionally been difficult to find as customers are directed to either a lab bench model or a large floor mount disperser. The new DP2 gives you access to a machine that is designed for this volume. With an 24" lift the DP2 high shear mixer can easily accommodate up to 20 Gal of material, and stay in a size that can still fulfill mixing in 1L beakers. The air lift moves smoothly in and out of position using a 3-way air valve, allowing the high speed dispersion blade to be positioned 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 DP2 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 membrane touch screen that also includes an RPM readout for repeatable process...

3HP DP3 Explosion Proof High Speed Disperser with Air Lift

DP3030XBA $8,113

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 30 Gal batch would normally require 3 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 on the dissolver are...
