Ytron ZC Liquid Mixer
Ytron model ZC liquid mixer
Working principle: The powder is sucked in by the strong negative pressure created by the ZC-reactor head.
Immediately after contact with the liquid phase the powders are instantly wetted and thoroughly dispersed. This process is actually completed before the powder is fully hydrated. Due to the extremely short time shear forces are applied, the process is a very gentle one.
In most cases a single pass operation ensures that even when processing extremely shear-sensitive thickeners and gelling agents, the highest viscosities are achieved.
Advantages of the Ytron ZC: Extremely difficult to wet out powders are processed in a single pass. The defined application of shear forces results in a STRETCHING ® effect of the molecular chain which therefore leads to an increase in viscosity. A selection of rotor/stator slot widths are available depending on the application. No air entrainment other than the air included in the powder phase.
