The Variable-Speed Rotor Stator is designed for high-speed dispersing, mixing, size reduction and deagglomerating at significant process savings. It creates mechanical shear by continuously drawing product components into the rotor and expelling them radially through the precision milled openings in the stator.
- Disperse, emulsify, homogenize, dissolve, mill, mix and blend
- Improves high-speed dispersion of paints, resins, inks, coatings, adhesives and more
- Ultra-shear design achieves dispersion at a much faster rate than a standard high-shear blade
- Eliminates additional processes such as grinding, milling or additional mixing
- Reduces the toughest agglomerates in size, blends them with liquid additives, and wets them out to create a consistent dispersion
A rotor turns within a slotted stator at very high speeds, allowing it to act as a centrifugal pump. The centrifugal force draws product down and pumps it out against the slots. The radial velocity and impact cause the product to break down against the slots and surfaces of the stator, ultimately shearing the particles. The product is then cycled back into the shearing process repeatedly through the continued rotation to achieve maximum dispersion.
