Mixing is one of the most common operations in chemical manufacturing
Most chemical processes involve mixing. As diverse as manufacturing is the mixing operations and requirements vary greatly. Mixing requirements include liquid blending, solid suspension, pigment dispersion, and these operations can be complicated by product viscosity.
DisperseTech offers a broad selection of industrial mixers for all your mixing needs. From small portable mixers and lab dispersers to low-speed agitators and high-speed dispersers through multi-shaft mixers and planetary mixers we offer mixers to handle the toughest mixing problems.
DisperseTech offers a wide range of laboratory mixers and overhead stirrers to meet your new product development requirements. Our mixers handle a wide range of products and viscosities.
Benchtop high‐speed laboratory dispersers come standard with a variable frequency inverter drive and air‐over‐oil lift. Replicating units found in production. Target batch size is 1 to 5-gallon. These unit’s produce dispersion speeds with 3” and 4” impellers. Available with 2 hp or 3 hp motors and can be configured as explosion proof if needed.
Larger Motors, different speed ranges and other options are available.
Direct drive Stand Mounted Mixers. Model CM-100 offers variable speed up to 16000 rpm, allowing dispersion with blades as small as 1 ¼”. Typically used with batches up to 1 gallon. It delivers 1 Hp at 10,000 rpm.
These units can me supplied with an optional digital speed controller to avoid rpm drag under load typically found with other mixers.
Model CMA-150 comes with 1 hp and 1.5 hp options. Speed is controlled via frequency inverter. These units can be run on single-phase power and are available with explosion proof motors if needed. Top Speeds of 4320, 5400, and 7200 rpm available.
MixMor offers top entering portable mixers ideal for drum and tote mixing. The Heavy Duty clamp mount is standard or a cup base can be supplied for fixed mounting. These portable mixers are ideal for drum mixing, tote mixing or can be used with portable tanks.
High Speed DispersersThe disperser, sometimes called a dissolver, is used mix solids into liquids. The high shear dispersion mixer operate at high speed to quickly wet-out pigments, break agglomerates and produce a homogeneous dispersion. To develop the shear necessary to break pigment agglomerates, laminar flow is necessary. A disc style dispersion blade is used to produce the laminar flow needed for dispersion. Through proper selection and sizing of the disperser blade, a flow can be established that will produce the needed shear as well as sufficient flow to yield a homogeneous product.
The disperser is commonly mounted on hydraulic hoist and referred to as a post mixer. This configuration allows portable tanks to be swapped under the mixer, allowing one disperser to operate with multiple tanks. The hydraulic hoist also allows for precise placement of the dispersion blade in the tank. Dispersers can be directly mounted to a fixed tank. This is typically done for larger batches. Limit lift hydraulic cylinders can be added to allow blade positioning even on the tank mounted installations.
Side Entering Mixer
For deep tanks, large batch sizes, or where top entry isn't a practical option, side entry mixers are an excellent alternative.
High Viscosity Mixers
High viscosity mixers are designed to provide the shear needed to break agglomerates and the flow necessary to provide a homogenous mix. DisperseTech offers multi-shaft, double planetary, and planetary centrifugal mixers to provide the correct blend of both shear and flow.
Top entry mixers are the most common mixer design. The shaft can be fully supported by bearings above the material being mixed, or an optional steady bearing can be supplied for larger shaft lengths or to reduce shaft costs. Many configurations can be supplied to meet your process requirements.
Horizontal mixers are used in variety of applications including coatings, sealants, and powders.
