The Boston Shearmill wet mill/homogenizer outperforms conventional shear pumps and colloid mills and provides very high throughputs at extreme shear rates. Inline rotor-stator machines deliver 24/7 operation; reduce solids particles with minimal dust formation; and withstand uneven flow patterns, jolts, and pressure fluctuations. And for milling of soft particles to <1 micron, or hard particles down to 1-2 microns, the shearmill produces superior particle size reduction, often in a single pass at high production rates.

Fastfeed powder induction system - if you need 100% dispersion of your powder ingredients look no further than the Fastfeed. This system instantly inducts, wets, disperses, and hydrates in a single pass with no clumps or foam as it is filling your batch tank. Plus you get controlled feed rates up to 450 pounds per minute from the safety of floor level. See the latest Fastfeed video to learn how it can help your operations.

FlowShear - The FlowShear bottom mount mixer / disperser delivers high shear and high flow in a compact design. With its unrivaled versatility, it enables processors to mix a wide range of batch sizes with minimal starting liquid levels. The unique mixing head design provides high shear and superior flow by combining a rotor-stator with an optional impeller utilizing advanced Jetfoil™ technology.  This ultra sanitary machine provides maximum performance results to meet your most demanding processing needs.
