The Ross MegaShear ultra-high shear mixer is designed for homogenizing dispersions and disintegrating large solid particles or droplets suspended in liquid. A unique inline rotor/stator design, the MegaShear’s patented mixing head turns at tip speeds well over 11,000 ft/min, and generates extremely complex flow patterns without sacrificing throughput. This subjects the product to intense mechanical and hydraulic shear, resulting in a very fine particle size distribution. In a typical process set-up, raw materials are combined in an agitated vessel and the resulting slurry, paste, or emulsion is introduced to the MegaShear which behaves like a centrifugal pumping device. Materials are fed by gravity or pumped to the mixer. When an auxiliary pump is used, the MegaShear can handle viscosities up to around 200,000 cP or higher.
