According to Charles Ross & Son Co., its inline SLIM high-shear mixer solves three processing steps with one machine. The close tolerance of the rotor and stator exposes 100% of liquid product to high shear and exerts a secondary pumping effect, eliminating the need for separate homogenization and recirculation pumping in viscosities under 10,000 cP.
At the same time, the proprietary solids/liquid injection manifold (SLIM) rotor generates a powerful suction that allows for large quantities of powders to be dispersed directly into the mix chamber, an advantage compared to upstream powder introduction typical of traditional eductors. The SLIM design is simpler to operate, reduces clogging, and prevents agglomerates from forming in the first place.
