When you need to mix cohesive powders with liquids or melt binders and require a homogenous end-product, a high-shear mixer can be used.
The Cyclomix® from Hosokawa Micron is a multi-purpose high-shear impact mixer. It combines different processes in one single machine and is the ideal choice for intensive thermal processing of high energy input; high degree of dispersion and homogeneity and ultra-short cycle times.
The mixing vessel is conical shaped and has a central rotor which rotates at a speed up to 30 m/s. The speed of the rotor creates centrifugal forces that push the product to the vessel wall where the shape of the vessel causes an upward movement.
