Mixing and Blending Case Studies and White Papers

  1. The Art Of High Shear Mixing
    3/24/2008
    The high-shear rotor/stator mixer (HSM), once relegated to a relatively narrow niche of mixing applications, has become a mainstay in many applications in the chemical process industries (CPI). The ability to apply intense shear and shorten mixing cycles gives these mixers broad appeal for applications that require immiscible fluids to be formulated into emulsions, or agglomerated powders to be dispersed into a liquid medium.

  3. White Paper: How To Choose The Right Mixer For High-Viscosity Mixing Applications
    5/25/2007
    A few years ago, the process of selecting a mixer for most applications was straight- forward. When increased demand required an increase in production, process engineers were naturally inclined to choose the type of mixer that had worked before in the same application. When they began talking to equipment manufacturers, their questions focused on capacity, auxiliary equipment, projected delivery and price. Many tested equipment before signing a purchase order. But they were mainly exercising “due diligence” - they were simply looking for proof that the mixer would work. The selection process is more complex today, because the capabilities of the most widely used mixers have expanded steadily during the last decade

  7. Pneumatic Equipment Allows Toll Blender To Adapt To Changing Market

    When processors face expenditures to purchase equipment to adapt to industry changes or production demands, they turn to toll processors for help. However, when toll processors are confronted with industry changes, they are in a unique position of having to adapt in order to continue servicing their clients. By Lisa Zocco

  8. Improve Safety In Your Mixing Room

    In the processing world, safety management cannot be overemphasized. The mixing room, in particular, is a source of many potential health and operational hazards.

  9. Reduce Contamination Risks In Your Ribbon Blender Operation

    To prevent intrusion of materials from the surrounding environment, the blender must be sealed. A dust-tight gasketed cover with clamps is generally suitable for atmospheric blending operations.

  10. Apply High Speed Powder Induction To Eliminate Dusting In The Mixing Area

    When poured from one open vessel into another, lightweight solids easily become airborne and can require extensive clean up.
