When adding powders to liquids they have a tendency to form agglomerates which conventional agitators cannot readily break down. The high shear action of the Silverson rotor/stator workhead rapidly disperses agglomerates, exposing increasing areas of the solid to the surrounding liquid. The result is an agglomerate-free solution within minutes.
Adding a high shear Silverson In-Line mixer to the existing process will rapidly produce an agglomerate-free product, improve yield and batch-to-batch consistency. The animation below illustrates how this is achieved.
