Fundamentals of Dispersion – A Quick Reference Guide

We manufacture a variety of dispersion blades and disperser equipment. Three key concepts surrounding dispersion are important to understand before ordering your dispersion blade or disperser. How Dispersion Works Dispersion is a high-speed, high-shear process requiring more horsepower to successfully achieve than simple agitation for smaller batch sizes. As the dispersion blade turns, particles contact the blades and are broken apart. In the intense turbulence surrounding the blade, particles collide at high speeds and are further broken apart. Beyond the zone… Read More

How Dispersion Works

High shear dispersion works when particles contact a rotating dispersion blade and are broken apart. The process requires equipment with high RPM and HP in order for the dispersion blade to reach tip speeds of 2,500 to 5,000 feet per minute. The optimum action of a disperser is a combination of rotary and radial flow. A particle starting at the outer edge of the container should travel to the center of the vortex in less than 360 degrees. Mixing and… Read More
