MegaShear increases shear and the flow, all in one pass
The MegaShear represents an ingenious step forward. It is a hybrid rotor/stator mixer the first to combine: - High flow rates: up to 500 gpm without an auxiliary pump - Extremely high tip speeds: over 11,000 fpm - Ultra-high shear The combination of high flow and high shear is an important improvement over previous rotor/stator designs, because gains in throughput can produce direct gains in overall production, operating efficiency, and bottom-line profitability. Even for those who are already using an ultra-high shear rotor/stator mixer to produce sub-micron emulsions and dispersions, the MegaShear offers many manufacturers a tool to produce more end-product, faster. But perhaps the most significant advantage that the MegaShear offers is its ability to disintegrate large particles and droplets in a single pass. With virtually 100% particle/droplet disintegration on the first pass, the MegaShear produces an exceptionally uniform particle/droplet size distribution – which is critically important for many fine emulsions and dispersions. A extremely narrow size distribution contributes to superior product stability and texture, faster solubilization, greater efficacy in the case of pharmaceuticals, and greater efficiency for catalyzed chemical reactions. The MegaShear is especially well-suited for applications that include high-quality chemical dispersions, emulsions, suspensions and solutions. Food applications include condiments, sauces, dressings and marinades.
