For products of medium viscosity and relatively consistent particle size such as honey, cremes, and some plastics, a simple, low cost mixing machine is useful to ensure even dispersion. The most efficient production plants take advantage of such equipment in continuous production processes to minimize required floor space and serve double-duty as mixing and pumping/transfer equipment.
The lower-priced ULTRA-TURRAX UTL 1000 machines are particularly multifunctional and are used for the mixing, dispersing (emulsifying/suspending) and homogenizing of solid and liquid substances up to viscosities of several thousand mPa·s, such as honey, plastic masses and crèmes. The mixing components are fed into the machine at the inlet connection. The materials are mixed, homogenized and then discharged from the machine via the outlet connection. The economic dispersing machine does not have automatic suction, but does have a conveyor height of up to 20 meters. Units are available with flow rates from 4.800 to 125.000 liters per hour.
