Cavitron Model 1048
Featured Product from ARDE Barinco, Inc.
Model 1048 Cavitron in-line high shear homogenizing mixer can substitute for piston homogenizers for making fine grain emulsions, fully dissolved polymers and elastomers, fully deagglomerated soild particles and multi-stream chemical reactions. Succsessive chambers are pressurized and then relieved causing controlled cavitation event millions of times per second. The cavitation exerts shear rates in the 100,000 reciprocal seconds regime. This produces shear stresses that can act upon extremely small particles and reduce their size.
In-line continuous chemical reactions can be performed by directly injecting chemical reactants into the high shear zones in the rotor/stator increasing yields and reducing deleterious side reactions caused by incorrect reactant concentrations.
