For continuous high performance mixing of solid and liquid raw materials rotor/stator equipment is often used because of the high shear forces it applies to the mixture which reduces particle size and aids dispersion. Use of equipment that uses three stages of rotor/stator action to achieve extremely small and evenly distributed particles for production of very fine emulsions and suspensions will guarantee the success of your process.
The IKA DISPAX-REACTOR® DR 2000 is a three-stage high shear inline dispersing machine used for the production of very fine emulsions and suspensions. Shear forces that occur in the working chamber produce a drastic increase of mass transfer and accelerate the dissolving rates of mono and macromolecular substances. Three rotor-stator combinations (generators) in a series ensure small- droplet or particle size and a very narrow distribution spectrum. This process promotes a long stability of mixtures in a single pass, especially when working with emulsions.
In order to configure the DISPAX-REACTOR® DR to meet a variety of application needs, IKA offers a wide selection of generators. The standard rotor-stator (generator) combination consists of a coarse, medium and fine rotor-stator. When installed in a series, this configuration ensures satisfactory particle size reduction while providing optimum dispersing results in a single pass. The units are designed for easy and reliable scalability and are available in sizes with flow rates from 80 to 125.000 liters per hour.
