Particle Size Reduction
The high shear action of the Silverson rotor/stator workhead can achieve rapid and uniform milling of both solid and semisolid materials to a low micron size in a single operation.
The degree of particle size reduction will depend on the hardness of the product, but for many applications, the use of a Silverson mixer will dispense with the need for conventional size-reduction equipment.
Where conventional milling equipment is required, pre-milling the product with a Silverson mixer will create a uniform premix that will pass through the conventional mill at a much faster rate, because media mills work best when fed with a product of a consistent and low particle size. Silverson offers a range of mixers including single and multistage In-Lines and the Multishear Mill, designed for processing even the hardest materials such as pigments, dyestuffs, filter cake, titanium dioxide, etc.
