Dispersing powders into liquids and creating a consistent homogeneous product, time after time, is one of the most difficult of all mixing applications. To satisfy this need Silverson has developed the Flashblend, a high shear system for rapid incorporation of a wide range of powders, including problematic gums and thickeners. The Flashblend is designed to incorporate powders on a continuous and semi-continuous basis at rates of up to 30,000 lbs/hour. The system can handle a wide range of viscosities, from low viscosity products through to viscous gels.
- Suitable for large scale production
- Agglomerate-free product
- Minimum aeration
- Improve vessel hygiene
- Viscous liquids can be incorporated into the bulk liquid via the hopper. Liquid additives can also be pumped directly into the venturi.

The Flashblend is generally configured as a semi-automatic system with a clean-in-place (CIP) mode, allowing the unit to be used for continuous operation and repeated batch production without stoppages for manual cleaning or inspection.
Four models available with powder absorption rates of up to 500 lbs a minute.
