For mixing and dispersing tasks that cannot be completed by conventional stirring means, equipment using the rotor/stator principal are often well suited. Batchwise production of emulsions and suspensions of abrasive products is highly demanding and the use of well suited equipment is crucial
The Ultra-Turrax UTS is IKA’s dispersing machine for abrasive products when more conventional stirring equipment cannot be used. Working on the rotor/stator principal, the units consist of a motor, a mounting flange, a stator with extension rods, a rotor, and a rotor drive shaft. A variety of dispersion tools known as generators can be fixed to the rotor making the units adaptable to most mixing tasks. The shaft seal is located at the motor flange and therefore is never in contact with the product.
These units are designed for diagonal from above or vertical off-center mounting orientations. They can be used with open, or pressurized vessels. For open vessel operations, the units are supported via wall mounts or floor stands. All variants of the UTS dispersing machines stand out for their unique ability to process highly abrasive ingredients. Units are available for batch sizes from 500 to 1.700 liters.
Built upon its world-leading laboratory equipment, IKA Process (http://www.ikaprocess.com/) is a game changing manufacturer of dispersing machines, homogenizers, stirrers, jet flow agitators, and kneading machines.
