An ultra-high-shear mixer is a patented in-line rotor-stator designed for high-volume deagglomeration, emulsification, and homogenization in such applications as the production of medical coatings and adhesives. The MegaShear is designed to produce very fine emulsions and dispersions in short processing cycles and to not be susceptible to such milling and homogenization problems as clogging and sensitivity to viscosity changes. In addition, its design makes time-consuming cleanup and intensive maintenance unnecessary. The rotor runs at tip speeds above 11,000 ft/min to produce complex flow patterns in the processed material. The mixer’s wetted parts are made of polished Type 316 stainless steel, and its mix chamber is designed to accommodate an internal pressure of 150 psig at 250°F. It comes with rotors 3, 6, and 9 in. in diameter.
