Explosion Proof High Shear Disperser

10HP DP3 Explosion Proof High Speed Disperser with Air Lift

DP3100XBA $12,590

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...

Explosion Proof High Shear Disperser

1.5HP Explosion Proof High Speed Disperser for up to 20 Gal Containers with Air Lift

DP2015XBA $5,633

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 a NEMA 7 rated local controller with an On/Off button and a...

Learn More About High Shear Mixers from Mixer Direct

One of the most important things to remember when running high shear mixers is understanding the ratio of energy provided to fluid movement. That's where our customer service pros can guide you in optimizing your processes. High shear mixer choices include:

  • 2HP Electric Lab Bench Disperser : Accommodating up to five-gallon containers, the new DP1 is economical yet full-featured. This high shear mixer can handle 200mL to five gallons. With a one-step dispersion blade change feature and an air-lift system that moves the blade in and out of the mix, high shear and high productivity are yours for the taking.
  • 30HP High-Speed Disperser with Air/Oil Lift: Whether mixing cosmetics, coatings or highly viscous materials that need a mega shear final push, the DP4 is a fantastic value. Allowing 270-degree rotation and a three-way air valve, this disperser provides total mobility and flexibility in mixing. You can change the blade on this high-speed mixer in less than thirty seconds. Multiple customizations and options are available with this model.
  • 1.5HP High-Speed Disperser with Air-Lift: The DP2 easily handles all your dispersing needs from five to twenty gallons. This range of volume is often the forgotten range. But not anymore. High shear mixers like this are nearly impossible to find, especially ones that handle multiple viscosities and ranges. The precision needle valve allows smooth airpower for speeds from 0-4500RPM.

How Does a High Shear Mixer Work?

A high shear mixer works by using a dispersion blade or a rotor stator to shear material until the desired consistency is reached. The mixing materials are broken down quickly and dispersed at varying rates creating emulsifications, homogenizations, and suspensions with ease. Mixer Direct’s high shear mixers have precision speed control to allow for smooth, even ‘flow.’

What's the Difference Between Low Shear and High Shear Mixers?

A shearing mixer will create turbulence in the material mixed. Low shear mixers can achieve the separation of materials that are "miscible" — materials that flow more readily from the tank's turbulence. Not all materials flow that easily. Many require a high shear mixer to create the necessary laminar flow of high-viscosity material outward to the stator. There, it is separated or emulsified — "sheared."

How Do I Determine Which High Shear Mixer is Best for Proper Dispersion?

Mixer Direct makes determining which high shear mixer is best for the vessel and materials you're blending. Here's the formula:

  • Number of Gallons being Dispersed ÷ 10 = Correct Horsepower

Each high shear mixer model we carry has been optimized according to specific dimensions to fit your application perfectly. Choose the corresponding high shear mixer, and we'll have it to you faster — sometimes twice as fast — than our competition.
