A Disperser is a single shaft mixer used to break apart or dissolve solid particles in a liquid. This is typically accomplished using a “saw tooth” blade rotating at high speed (approximately 5200 feet per minute peripheral speed). The blade imparts high shear forces to the ingredients being dispersed, breaking them apart. Through proper blade selection and sizing, a flow can be established that will repeatedly turn over the batch and yield a homogeneous product. Dispersers are most often used to mix low viscosity products such as paints.
Tank-mounted units raise and lower the blade by several feet (to better control the vortex) without exiting the tank. They feature a square column, high-pressure lift system complete with directional control valve.
