High Shear Mixing FAQs
Q: When would you choose an In-Line mixer over a Batch machine?
A: Silverson High Shear Batch mixers are ideal for volumes of up to 400 gallons, depending on viscosity. While we do offer Batch machines for much larger capacities, in general beyond this point an In-Line mixer is often the most efficient and economical option. This is because the In-Line mixer’s energy is concentrated on the small volume within the mixing chamber at any given moment, rather than expended on circulating the entire contents of the vessel, as well as, the mixing task itself. Consequently a relatively small In-Line mixer can process a large batch.
