The ME-4100 series of the inline high shear mixers offers a possibility to pump, disperse, homogenize and emulsify products with one and the same equipment.
Numerous chemical, food-processing, pharmaceutical and cosmetics production processes require this system as there are lines with ingredient separation or due to the lack of space inside the tanks to install vertical or bottom of the tank mixers.
These mixers are especially useful in already existing plants.
They can work with a recirculation tank reaching the best efficiency after several passes of the product through the mixer.
The casing is similar to a casing of a centrifugal pump, it houses the stator and the rotor. It is characterised by a high shear due to an adjusted tolerance between the rotor and the stator and the high speed of the rotor.
The product is suctioned through the inlet and the rotor pushes it to the stator. Passing through the slots of the stator the product is mechanically sheared, the particles are sheared by the rotor at the speed of more than 20 m/s.
And finally the flow is hydraulically sheared leaving the stator through the slots at a high speed.
If the viscosity of the product is higher than 200cP, it is recommended to put an auxiliary pump at the inlet of the mixer, and if a high discharge pressure is required, it is necessary to assemble another auxiliary pump.
