Mixing Tips

Optimal Particle Size Reduction

When dispersing powders where a degree of particle size reduction is required, best results can be obtained by adding the powder to the smallest possible volume of liquid. This focuses the mixer’s energy on dispersing and milling the powder rather than moving the full volume of the batch, and the concentration of powder provides attrition which accelerates the reduction of particle size. Once the required particle size is achieved the remaining liquid can be rapidly blended into the mix using the Silverson mixer.
