BEMATEK: In-Line Sanitary Mixer
February 28, 2005
An in-line, hi-shear sanitary mixer for batch and continuous processes is now available from Bematek Systems, Inc. The Bematek LZ-Series Hi-Shear In-Line Mixer features a patented mixing head with up to 12 "shear action" zones consisting of high-speed rotors and stators that can produce shear rates of 200,000 per second each. Suitable for batch and continuous processes, this mixer can process up to 1,200 GPM with repeatability to +/-1%, depending upon ingredients. Also, all product passes through the mixing head, cutting process time by up to 80%. Providing tighter and more uniform particle size distribution than conventional mixers, the modular shear-action zone design of Bematek's LZ-Series Hi-Shear In-Line Mixer facilitates scale-up from laboratory to production requirements. USDA-, FDA- and 3A-compliant, it is constructed from 316L stainless steel and can be powered by single-phase or 3-phase.
