What is high shear mixer?
BXH-L Inline high shear mixer is rotor and stator high shear mixer for the manufacture of viscous cream and suspensions in the cosmetic, pharmaceutical, food and chemical industries. It`s the heart of BXZRW vacuum emulsification mixer.
What is high shear mixer made of?
BXH-L inline homogenizer is usually made of one or three sets of rotor and stator, transmission part and motor etc.
How does high shear mixer work?
The rotor is driven by ABB or Siemens motor and rotates at the speed of 3000rpm causing strong centrifugal force. The raw materials are sucked from the inlet of stator into the high shear housing.
The strong centrifugal force drives the cream to the narrow gap between the rotor and stator. The cream is pressed and crushed by the centrifugal force and then got dispersed and emulsified preliminary.
Meanwhile, the rotor produces a linear velocity up to 15~40m/s along the tangent. The cream goes through the gap between rotor and stator and is dispersed, sheared, emulsified and homogenized. Then it jets out from the outlet of the stator.
Because the inline homogenizer is mounted into a tank by circulation pipes, the cream jets out from the pipe and goes back into the tank. After several circulations, it`s completely sheared, dispersed, emulsified and homogenized.
