Systems provide users with a finished product that is homogeneous, has repeatable viscosity and dispersion down to one micron, and is totally consistent from batch-to-batch Featuring a colloid mill and positive displacement feed pump, matched to user requirements, systems can be designed for handling viscous materials from 1,000 CPS and up with flow rates from 0.
Applications for Shearpumps and high intensity mixers include tomato paste, mustard, ketchup, salsa, and sauces that typically require a colloid mill, which unfortunately operate at very low throughput, and higher maintenance levels.
For example, the acidified slurry is homogenized by recirculating it through a colloid mill to produce an aqueous (oil-in-water) emulsion or pourable dressing.
