Mixing Tips

Optimized Order of Ingredient Addition

A Silverson High Shear mixer can simultaneously carry out a range of mixing tasks – disintegrating, dissolving, emulsifying or homogenizing, etc. – many products can be manufactured in a single step using a Silverson mixer. Where gums and thickening or stabilizing agents are included in the formulation, add these last. This allows other powders in the formulation to be dispersed easily while viscosity is low, and prevents degradation of structured products when adding ingredients that may affect pH.
