High Speed Dispersers are suitable for high-volume mixing in vessels up to 6,000 gallons or larger. These production-scale systems are either tank-mounted or supplied with an air/oil hydraulic lift. In the latter configuration, a height limit switch enables the mixer to operate from the fully down position to a safe raised height. This allows the operator to adjust blade position as necessary to eliminate any potential stratification within a large batch, as well as to agitate smaller liquid volumes during the initial stages of mixing. Used for wetting out powders, creating a uniform suspension and general liquid-liquid mixing, the classic saw-tooth open disch blade turns at tip speeds up to 5,000 ft/min. Satisfactory flow patterns and rapid turnovers are achieved in dispersions and solutions with a viscosity of greater than 50,000 centipoise.
