Mixer offers high-shear functionality in tight spaces

June 2, 2013

The Silverson Ultramix can provide high-shear mixing in vessels with narrow openings.

The Silverson Ultramix is designed for shear-sensitive applications that require mixing capabilities beyond the scope of conventional agitators. Because of the small diameter of its single-piece dynamic workhead, the Ultramix can provide high-shear mixing, even in vessels with narrow openings. The machine can process volumes from laboratory scale up to 1800 gal, depending on viscosity, with larger units available upon request. The mid-range mixer is also suitable for bulk powder dispersion, deagglomeration, gelation, reaction acceleration, suspension, and processing high-viscosity mixes. The Ultramix is equally suited to rigorous chemical service and demanding sanitary standards—the unit complies with 3A, USDA, and cGMP requirements and is designed for clean-in-place operation with sterilize-in-place as an option.
