High Shear Mixers

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

The most common high speed 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 within high shear mixers. 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 your high speed mixer needs. Call us at (812) 202-4047 or contact us through the website and we'll get back to you the same day with information on our high-shear mixers and high-speed dispersers.

explosion proof high shear disperser

1.5HP Explosion Proof Lab Bench Disperser for up to 5 Gal Containers

DP1015XDA $5,065

Newly released from Mixer Direct, the DP1 line of bench top dispersers is one of the most economical and full featured disperser lines on the market. The high shear dissolver can handle a wide range of volumes from 200 mL up to 5 Gals. The unique container holder adjusts so as to clamp the vessels in place firmly at a wide diameter range. One step dispersion blade change out lets the operator quickly tune in a process, using different size dispersion blades or even different blade geometries that better accommodate the shear level needed for the application. The DP1 high speed disperser line does not just perform well with the process, but is also easy to use. Models are equipped with an air lift system that effortlessly moves the dispersion blade in and out of the mix. With many explosion proof high speed dispersers, you have to leave the rated area to adjust the speed or you are stuck cranking down on a variable speed pulley while reaching around your vessel. With the DP1 explosion proof line, the dissolver controls are located in an explosion proof box right in front of the operator, with the motor control box located outside...

5HP DP3 Explosion Proof High Speed Disperser with Air Lift

DP3050XBA $9,017

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...
