Powder Into Liquid Disperser (DISPERSHEAR)

Tricky powders effectively dispersed into liquids, carbomers, Xanthan Gum, CMC, batter mix, guar gum, pre-gelatinized "cold water" starches, polyethylene oxide, HEC, gum acacia, locust bean gum and alginates.


Dispersion of difficult fine powders into liquids is the strength of the ARDE Dispershear. Only the Dispershear from ARDE Barinco lets you control the feed rate of solids as well as the flow rate of liquids. The result is a remarkably efficient system that produces smooth, uniform dispersions with no waste and no agglomerates.

The Dispershear evenly incorporates fine powders that can be difficult to disperse with conventional systems. And its one-pass operation won't harm long-chain molecules or other shear-sensitive materials.

The key is the variable-speed auger running along the bottom of the solids holding hopper. By adjusting the auger's speed, you control the rate at which solids feed into the powder chute-slowly for fine powders, faster for maximum productivity. The liquid also enters the powder chute at the rate you specify. Because the liquid flow washes the walls of the powder chute, the problems of solids buildup and plugging are eliminated. The entire mixture is washed down into the dispersion chamber.


Housed inside the dispersion chamber is the low-shear Impulser. The centrifugal force created by the Impulser abruptly changes the direction of the entering mixture, subjecting it to both mechanical and hydraulic low-shear dispersing. The swirling action created inside the dispersion chamber provides fast mixing and ensures uniformity. The new product, smooth and consistent, is pumped out the discharge port. Residence time in the dispersion chamber is a mere 0.2 seconds, requiring very little energy.

The Dispershear can handle a wide variety of solids (including light powders such as flour, Xanthan Gum and Carbopol) and liquids (water, solvents or any other liquid pre-mix). It can produce low-viscosity suspensions, high-viscosity dispersions, or anything in between. And it mixes large or small quantities continuously or in batches. This versatility makes the Dispershear perfect for a variety of industries including food, chemical processing, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and toiletries, textiles and coatings.

The Dispershear mixes faster than conventional mixers. That's because the powder particles enter the fluid almost instantly, and are dispersed quickly by the remarkably efficient Impulser. That leads to increased production in less time-translating into reduced energy costs. Material savings are realized because there are no lumps to filter out. Labor costs are reduced too, because the variable speed auger eliminates the need for manual feeding of fine powders. The Dispershear comes apart quickly for easy cleaning with minimal down time.
