High Shear Mixer solutions for Carbon Black
Carbon black is, as the name implies, a black pigment. The powder must often be incorporated into a liquid and then dispersed or ground to a required particle size. The powder addition is commonly done in a dedicated area to avoid coloring everything in the main production area. IKA® Works offers equipment capable of grinding some carbon black pigments down to <1 micron while sealing the powder from the remainder of the production area.
ADVANTAGES OF IKA® WORKS MIXERS FOR DISPERSING / GRINDING CARBON BLACK
- Improved cleanliness. Utilizing an IKA® Works MHD powder / liquid mixer allows customers to disperse the powder directly from storage into the liquid without handling.
- Improved product quality. Carbon black can be ground to 8 Hegman with an IKA® Works Mixer, beyond the level of other high shear manufacturers. Also, IKA® Mixers are known for their extremely tight particle size distribution.
- Reduced process time. Customers are able to produce results traditionally requiring low throughput media mills in a fraction of the time with an IKA® Works Mixer.
