High Shear Mixing FAQs

Q: How can I get rid of agglomerates in my mix?

A: When powders such as gums and thickeners are added to liquids they tend to agglomerate, and conventional agitators cannot readily break these lumps down. The easiest way to overcome this is to add a Silverson In-Line mixer to recirculate the product. The high shear action will rapidly disperse lumps and fisheyes to give a homogeneous end product, maximising yield. A Silverson In-Line mixer is easy to fit, easy to use and easy to clean.
