High Shear Mixing FAQs
Q: Why use a high shear mixer rather than a simple agitator?
A: Agitators can give satisfactory results for simple duties such as blending like-viscosity liquids, providing in-tank uniformity and promoting heat transfer in jacketed vessels. But if you need to blend liquids of differing viscosities, emulsify, homogenize, disintegrate, solubilize, disperse powders, reduce particle size or accelerate reactions, these tasks cannot readily be achieved with a low shear device. A Silverson High Shear mixer can do this and more, cutting your mixing time by up to 90 percent.
