High Shear Mixing FAQs
Q: What is the difference between an In-Line mixer and a shear pump?
A: The clue is in the name! Silverson High Shear In-Line mixers are designed for the most demanding mixing duties – emulsifying, homogenizing, disintegrating, solubilizing, deagglomerating, powder/liquid blending and reaction acceleration – with the added advantage of having a high volume, self-pumping capacity. With a range of interchangeable workheads and stator screens, they offer unrivaled versatility and unmatched efficiency. By contrast, shear pumps are often a modified centrifugal pump with a limited shearing capacity, suitable for simple tasks. They don’t have the versatility or performance of a Silverson, and ironically, they frequently require an auxiliary pump.
