The Z-Series in-line mixer features a modular, multi-shear mixing head consisting of stators and high-speed rotors that can be arranged in any combination to create from one to 12 shear action zones. With product passage through each shear action zone capable of achieving mixing results equal to one pass through an entire conventional mixer, this multi-shear mixing head can eliminate the need for recirculation and multiple mixers. Capable of emulsification, dispersion, and particle size reduction down to 1 micron in one pass through, the mixer provides total product development flexibility. This is because the amount of shear imparted on a product is a function of the stator and rotor design in each shear action zone, mixer speed, number of zones, and product residence time. Pricing starts at $11,995. Process laboratory testing is available for a defined fee, which is credited toward equipment purchases.
