What is high shear mixing?

High shear mixing is an advanced mixing technique that involves intense mechanical agitation and shearing forces to achieve superior blending, dispersion, and particle size reduction. Unlike conventional mixers or agitators, high shear mixers utilise specialised rotor/stator technology to generate extremely high shear rates, creating a powerful suction effect that continuously draws materials into the high shear zone.

Leveraging this advanced technology, high shear mixers provide remarkable mixing efficiency, enabling:

  • Faster processing times and increased production throughput.
  • Finer and more uniform droplet/particle size distributions.
  • Improved product quality, consistency, and stability across batches.

Silverson high shear mixers are engineered to deliver exceptional mixing performance, combining advanced rotor/stator technology with robust construction and scalable designs.

High Shear Mixing FAQs

Q: Why use a high shear mixer rather than an agitator?

A: Simple agitators are great for basic mixing tasks like liquid-liquid blending or mixing similar viscosity materials. However, for more demanding applications, a high shear mixer offers significant advantages:

Put simply, if you need to achieve a finer mix, faster processing, or work with diverse viscosities, a high shear mixer is the superior choice.

Q: What are the key advantages of using Silverson high shear mixers?

A: Silverson high shear mixers offer several benefits, including:

Q: How do I select the right Silverson high shear mixer for my application?

A: To ensure you get the ideal mixer for your needs, consider these key factors:
