High Shear Mixer solutions for Catalytic Agents
Catalysts are used widely in the chemical industry to promote and accelerate reactions. Catalysts are often expensive, used in relatively small quantities, and derived from inorganic chemicals (i.e. heavy metals). Catalysts may be used to simply provide an acceptable site for the chemical reaction to take place or may themselves be an integral part of the reaction (one of the reactants). In either case, the maximum yield will depend on effectively bringing the catalyst into contact with the reactants (effective dispersion) and / or constantly renewing the catalyst’s surface area (de-agglomeration, particle size reduction, etc). IKA® Works proven experience in the chemical industry allows customers to rest assured that they will receive the maximum yield from their catalyst(s).
ADVANTAGES OF IKA® WORKS MIXERS WHEN PROMOTING REACTIONS WITH CATALYSTS
- Increased yields. IKA® Works Generators are specifically designed to ensure complete dispersion, bringing the catalyst into contact with the other reactants. Further, the high shear rotor / stator action ensures that agglomerates are broken down, surface areas refreshed, and reaction yields are maximized.
- Decreased production time. The high speed, high shear mixing action of an IKA® Works Mixer ensures that catalyst(s) and reactants are rapidly dispersed within one another, speeding reactions. The high energy input of an IKA® also helps accelerate the reaction process.
