Dissolving

Silverson High Shear Mixers provide a highly efficient method of solubilizing a wide variety of materials from sugars and salts in the food industry to resins, rubbers and polymers in the chemical and petrochemical industries. This is achieved as the high speed rotation of the rotor draws liquid and solid materials upwards into the workhead, where they are subjected to intense but targeted shear in the precision gap between the rotor and stator before being forced out through the stator and projected back into the main body of the mix. With each pass through the workhead, the solids are reduced in size, exposing an increasing surface area to the surrounding liquid and accelerating the solubilization process.

Silverson offers a range of equipment for this application, including Batch and In-Line mixers and Disintegrator/ Dissolver systems for large-scale manufacture.
