Powder Induction Machine Eliminates “Fish Eye” Effect

August 22, 2011

It is designed to prevent the formation of agglomerates and “fish eyes” in thick solutions.

Charles Ross & Son Co. (Hauppauge, NY) is offering its Ross Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM) high-shear mixer system that the company says is designed to prevent the formation of agglomerates and “fish eyes” in thick solutions.

The novel powder-induction method uses a specially engineered rotor/stator assembly that generates a powerful vacuum for drawing solids into the mixing chamber. The liquid stream enters the mixer and immediately encounters the powder addition under intense shear conditions. The resulting dispersion is then expelled centrifugally through the stator openings at high velocity. As a result, the company says, stubborn agglomerates and “fish eyes” are prevented from forming.
