The ME 1100 series of the high shear vertical mixers present a solution for the processes of dispersion, emulsifying, homogenisation and disintegration of solids in a wide range of products in the food-processing, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and fine chemistry industries.
These mixers are intended for work under the atmospheric pressure and with the products of either high or low viscosity. The mixers are recommended to work with anchor type agitators if the application involves highly viscous media.
Vertical Mixer – ME 1100 Operating Principle
The high speed and adjusted tolerances between the rotor and the stator result in high suction potential, the product is suctioned from the bottom of the tank and driven to the centre of the head.
The product is suctioned from the lower part of the head and the rotor thrusts it radially. Passing through the openings of the stator the product is mechanically sheared. the particles are sheared by the rotor at 20 m/s. And finally the product is hydraulically sheared while leaving the stator through the slots at a high speed . At the same time the product returns to the working head ensuring the mixing circle and generating a strong circulation inside the tank. The combination of the vertical suction and radial thrust results in a circulation flow.
If the size and the power of the mixer are correctly selected, the ingredients contained in the tank pass through the working head hundreds of times that promotes a progressive and uniform homogenization. Other important feature is the possibility to minimize the aeration of the product
