MegaShear Ultra-High Shear Mixer

September 20, 2012

The Ross MegaShear ultra-high shear mixer is a patented inline rotor/stator designed for high-volume and high-throughput deagglomeration, emulsification, and homogenization requirements. Outperforming conventional high-shear mixers, colloid mills, and even high-pressure homogenizers in many applications, the MegaShear is capable of producing very fine emulsions and dispersions at a fraction of the cycle time. Just as important, it is not susceptible to common milling and homogenization issues such as clogging, sensitivity to viscosity changes, time-consuming clean-up, and intensive maintenance. The MegaShear generator consists of high-velocity pumping vanes and precisely-machined semi-cylindrical grooves where the product splits into different streams and collide at high frequency before exiting the mix chamber. Complex flow patterns are produced by the rotor running at tip speeds over 11,000 ft/min, subjecting the material to thousands of intense mechanical and hydraulic shearing events in a single pass.
