Many products in the market today require catalysts, stabilizers and neutralizers in the production process. Various mills are used for mixing, dispersion or emulsification of such products. A turbine mixer might work well enough for the first of the three, but emulsification or dispersion does require a high speed emulsifying machine, a colloid mill. It is possible to mix mutually insoluble materials, and those have to be homogenized or dispersed.
Homogenisation is a process of creation of a uniform stable substance by destroying the microscopic irregularities, which arise when two mutually insoluble substances are mixed.
Dispersion is a process of creation of a uniform substance with two or more insoluble materials. The first of the substances, called the dispersion phase, is distributed in the other, called the dispersion medium; such substance stays stable (i.e. no stratification occurs) for an extended period of time.
One of the most optimal solution to this task is the use of a colloid mill.
What is a high speed emulsifying machine?
The CLM colloid mill is specifically designed bitumen emulsion colloid mill, developed for production of highly stable colloidal solutions, superfine suspensions, blends and emulsions. The mill features wet grinding due to the gap between rotor and stator cones being larger at the inlet and smaller at the outlet.
The product in the mill is ground between the rotating and stationary calibrated cylindrical radially skewed teeth of the rotor and stator. Additionally, the complex geometry of the rotor surface create increased turbulence, which shears particles.
The product in the colloid mill is ground between the rotating and stationary calibrated cylindrical radially skewed teeth of the rotor and stator.
The centrifugal force and high velocity of the rotor relative to the fixed stator cause liquid and semi-liquid materials to become homogenic and finely dispersed.
The colloid mill simultaneously disperses and homogenizes materials.
A heat jacket allows to apply or dissipate heat to or from the grinding zone.
The colloid mill features high performance capacity, allows to produce highly stable emulsions, as well as colloidal suspensions, ensures high degree of homogenization and particle size to 1 micron.
Processes are intensified by 100 – 600% compared with a turbine agitator – colloid mill built into a production line and does not require additional tanks.
Besides, the device creates cavitation, i.e. explosion of caverns by internal pressure.
The colloid mill can be retrofitted into existing production lines.
For high quality grinding the product must enter the mill in certain proportions at constant rate.
The degree of granulation and pumping qualities may vary depending on the mechanical properties of the material and the carrier phase.
