When introducing low-density solids, agglomerates can form when using top-entry slow-speed mixers. In some cases, this lumping is irreversible–subsequent shearing will not eliminate the “fish eyes” that have formed, restricting plant operators to very slow addition of powders and negatively affecting production throughput.
The SLIM system injects materials directly into the rotor/stator agitator of the VersaMix. The strong vacuum force of the high-shear mixer sucks in powders or liquids for immediate dispersion or emulsification. Wet-out is virtually instant and mixing time is significantly decreased. The volume of airborne particles resulting from powder dusting is also minimized.
