Mixing Tips

Dispersing Powders without the Need to Premix

Unlike eductor funnels and other conventional powder/liquid mixing systems, when using a Silverson Flashblend, ingredients don't need to be premixed before addition to the feed hopper. For example, suppliers of gums and thickeners sometimes advise premixing them with other powders to reduce the formation of agglomerates in conventional processes. This is not necessary with Silverson powder/liquid mixing systems, because the high shear rapidly incorporates the powder into the liquid and shears any agglomerates down, ensuring complete dispersion and hydration of the powder and maximized yield.
