The company is offering a new high-efficiency hopper for its line of High Shear Mixers with Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM) Technology. The SLIM is a unique rotor/stator device engineered for high-speed powder injection into liquid without the need for educators or pumps. The improved hopper design ensures a steady rate of feed delivery and prevents "rat holes" or bridging of bulk solids. Typical solids dispersed using the SLIM include CMC, guar gum, carrageenan, xanthan gum, alginates, pectin, calcium carbonate, starch, carbomers, sugar, salts, dye powders and otehr additives or fillers. All product contact parts are stainless steel 316 polished to 150-grit (32 Ra) finish. Tri-clamp connections on the liquid inlet, powder inlet and mixture outlet allow for easy disassembly and cleaning. The mixer is suppled with a cartridge-type double mechanical seal and barrier fluid tank.
