The MegaShear from Charles Ross & Son Co. is an ultra-high-shear rotor/stator mixer that is reportedly ideal for high-throughput emulsification, dispersion, and homogenization. According to the company, the 11,300-ft/min tip speed and proprietary geometry of the MegaShear mixing head generate a level of shear typically unseen among rotor/stator mixers and usually reserved for high-pressure homogenizers.
The company reports that the pictured MegaShear model HSM-706M-50 features a 50-HP motor and is used in the food, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical, chemical, coatings, electronics, and composites industries for creating high-quality dispersions, suspensions, and emulsions. A comparably sized MegaShear reportedly costs less than a high-pressure homogenizer while being less sensitive to clogging and changes in viscosity. The unit pictured is mounted on a movable pallet and is CE marked.
