How The Boston Shearmill Works

How Inline High Shear Mixers Work

Boston Shearmills are constructed of a multi-slot rotor turning at high speeds in close proximity to a multi-port stator. Each shear head of the homogenizer consists of a rotor and stator, each with a double ring design. This results in three distinct, high intensity work zones at each rotor / stator location where the mixture passes:

  • between the first set of rotor slots or teeth and the first ring of slots on the stator
  • between the first ring of slots on the stator and the second ring of slots in the rotor
  • between the second ring of slots in both the rotor and stator

Models with three shear heads provide nine high shear work zones to handle your toughest processing needs.

They are capable of processing very high throughputs at extreme shear rates producing an average mean droplet size of 1-3 microns.
