The increasing use of chemical stabilization for processing in industry engineering systems has resulted in the need to ensure maximum mixing efficiency. The effectiveness of the mixing process can have a serious impact on the quality of the material which can affect the particular industry/company and its success in the marketplace. Process engineers face a number of problems when trying to maintain high shear performance and productivity in their fluid mixing processes. Such problems that can occur during the process can include: achieving consistent and predictable quality, achieving higher capacities and faster batch times, and ease of cleaning. Traditional in-tank fluid dispersion and emulsifying methods have limitations regarding productivity which has resulted in bottlenecks that cause many industries to either increase their costs trying to resolve the problems or they will just work around it. However, innovations in mixing equipment have resulted in the development of single-pass high shear mixers which resolve these problems resulting in higher shear performance, productivity, and profitability.
Single pass high shear mixers, dispersers, emulsifiers, and wet mills have proven to provide greater efficiency. In a fast mixing process, mixers will maximize yield while creating high quality dispersions and emulsions through the application of the required shear energy to all material. Every high shear mixer is able to be specifically tailored to a needed level and process result. High shear inline mixers ensure consistently good product quality that is repeatable, predictable, and scalable. In addition, mixing equipment can greatly reduce batch energy consumption and mixing times.
Key benefits of single pass mixing equipment include:
* Maximize dispersion and yield to save up to 30% on powder ingredients
* Eliminate the common over-processing of other conventional dispersing technologies
* Preserve the rheological properties of shear sensitive products, which also lead to powder ingredient savings
* Dispersion aids such as preheating the aqueous phase and dispersing into semi-polar solvent are no longer necessary
Mixing equipment in use today has made significant advancements to reduce many problems, and greatly benefit the industries that use such equipment. Today’s mixers are capable of sizing most materials. The best solution is to switch to a high-shear mixer. In select applications, a high-shear mixer can achieve the desired process goals in a single pass. This permits the equipment to process batches of product with one of the tank contents, and then move on to the next stage of the process. Its ability to complete the process in a single pass reduces initial equipment cost without negatively impacting production. For any industry looking to invest in a single pass mixing equipment, it would be beneficial to consult with a mixer manufacturer. Single pass mixing equipment can make the difference between failure and success in the industry process itself as well as in the market. The benefits of single pass mixing equipment make it a vital part of a whole host of industries.
