How The DynaShear® Inline Emulsifier Works
The performance and success of high shear inline mixers can be measured in droplet size (particle size) reduction, particle size distribution, and flow/processing rates under varying viscosity conditions. The DynaShear excels in all of these characteristics when compared to competitive inline mixers.
A single pass through the DynaShear results in product quality typical of several passes through conventional mixers.
The DynaShear is the first inline emulsifier to feature a dual stage tandem head design that combines the benefits of both an axial and a radial stage creating excellent shear and flow characteristics.
|Primary Axial Stage|
|The axial stage consists of a high flow rotor feeding into a stator with multiple small ports, forcing material between their faces and out through the ports. This mechanical and hydraulic action causes a tremendous shearing action and "pre-mixes" the material prior to the secondary stage.|
|Secondary Radial Stage|
|The radial stage consists of a radial, high flow rotor discharging through a slotted stator providing additional mechanical and hydraulic shear. The centrifugal force at this stage allows the mixture to be pushed away from the shaft and along the radius of the stator, with high speed expulsion occurring at the edge of the slots. This stage provides a substantial momentum change in flow, resulting in beneficial residence time that further refines the mixture.|
