High Shear Mixing FAQs
Q: What particle size can I achieve with a Silverson High Shear mixer?
A: Many solids are supplied in premicronized form but reagglomerate when dispersed. A Silverson High Shear mixer will reduce these materials down to their original particle size. The degree of size reduction of other solids depends on their hardness, but typically, 5 to 10 microns can be achieved, or sometimes lower.
