Silverson Initiates "Try Before You Buy" Mixing Equipment Program

August 10, 2010
Buying a piece of production equipment is a long-term investment, so it stands to reason that customers may want to take it for a test drive, so to speak. Silverson understands this desire. In response to industry needs, it has initiated a free, no-obligation, two-week trial program that lets customers try out its mixing equipment prior to purchase.

“Customers want to be certain the mixing equipment they are buying is optimal for their production process, and rightfully so,” says Matt Smith, international sales director, Silverson Machines. “It’s an important decision and no small investment.”

From years of experience across a wide swath of industries, the high-shear mixing experts at Silverson have learned that every mixing application is unique. Because of this, Silverson tests its mixers under the most realistic conditions possible. Then it helps customers choose the right mixer or customizes one for their particular application. Knowledge of variables such as raw material characteristics, end product viscosity, batch size and mixing temperature is used to determine the best mixer for each application. 
   
In addition to its trial program, Silverson maintains two dedicated test facilities - one in the U.S. and one in the U.K. - each equipped with a complete range of laboratory and production scale machines. At either of these sites, customers can test their applications, try out new products, and discuss specific applications with the technical staff.

“We are confident that once a customer tries our equipment, we’ll be able to help them optimize their processing,” says Smith. “Our high-shear mixers can often reduce mixing times up to 90 percent compared to conventional mixing equipment.”
