The X-series inline ultra-high-shear mixer is designed for efficient high-throughput emulsification, dispersion, and homogenization. Available in both sanitary and industrial configurations, the machine reportedly produces quality dispersions, suspensions, and emulsions in industries such as chemical, adhesives, and composites manufacturing.
The pictured model HSM-409XSHD-125 is a CIP-capable sanitary mixer. It features a type 316 stainless steel mixing chamber, a 150-psig jacket for cooling and heating up to 250˚F, and an X-5 series 9-in. diameter AL6XN stainless steel rotor/stator that operates up to 5,700 rpm (13,430 ft/min tip speed).
The company reports that the X-series mix head is a patented design comprising concentric rows of intermeshing teeth. Product enters at the middle of the stator and travels outward through the radial channels. Every pass through the rotor/stator exposes the product to tremendous shear due to the combination of tight tolerances and high tip speeds. Compared to traditional colloid mills, the X-Series routinely achieves a higher reduction in droplet or agglomerate size.
