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.
