How The Boston Shearmill Works
Boston Shearmills are capable of processing very high throughputs at extreme shear rates producing an average mean droplet size of 0.05-3 microns.
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 has a double ring design providing two stages of mixing at both the rotor and stator. 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
