Inline Mixing & Milling - Find Your Mixer


Inline Mixing & Milling MixersGeneral Blending - For simple miscible fluids (i.e. water and alcohol) of various volumes and densities (i.e. different food oils).


Dissolving - For simple wetting out of a powder or solid material that completely dissolves in water or other liquid, i.e. sugar, salt in less than saturation concentration. High shear is preferred and will always be faster and more efficient, low shear may be acceptable where mix time is not a factor.


Dispersing - Where powders or solids are introduced into a liquid at a rapid rate to insure a thorough distribution for a homogeneous product. Many powders can be dispersed to form a slurry where the mixed viscosity stays constant or can be followed by a hydration stage where viscosity may build. High shear is necessary for effective dispersion.


Emulsification - Typically involving immiscible liquids as in oil and water or adding powders to a liquid, and consisting of a continuous and a dispersed phase. An emulsifying or stabilizing agent (surfactant) may be needed for stability. Could produce very high viscosities. High shear is always recommended.


Hydration - Typically follows dispersion of a viscosity building gum or hydrocolloid. Once the gum is rapidly dispersed, hydration normally begins immediately and could take from seconds to several minutes. Examples include starches, soy, pectin, xanthan gum, CMC, etc.


Particle Size Reduction / Deagglomeration - Shear combined with physical impact causes particles or droplets to be reduced to smaller diameters. This is based on the tip speed and mechanical design of the shear head. High shear mixers manufactured by Admix will typically provide particle or droplet size reduction in the range of 0.5 to 5 microns, with better than 90% distribution under 3 microns.

  • Boston Shearmill - up to 300 GPM with particles to 0.5-1.0 micron

  • DynaShear - up to 160 GPM with particles from 2-3 microns
