High Shear Mixer solutions for Detergents
Detergents include the products we use to clean most everything we own. The applications for high shear mixers in the manufacturing process commonly involve the dilution of a high active surfactant (the compound that “does the cleaning”) and the following neutralization step. A high shear mixer can speed process time and greatly improve process efficiency when compared to conventional methods. IKA® Works, the world leader in high shear mixing technology, has the experience to assist customers with either of the applications noted above.
ADVANTAGES OF IKA® WORKS MIXERS FOR MANUFACTURING DETERGENTS
- Decreased process time. High active surfactants are often difficult and time consuming to disperse. Using an IKA® High Shear Mixer allows customers to rapidly disperse their high active surfactants in a fraction of the time required by conventional methods.
- Reduced aeration. Aeration can cause a number of issues for manufacturers including foaming and excessive viscosity. IKA® Works offers aeration free designs, including a non-vacuum or venturi based powder / liquid mixer (MHD), to address this concern.
- Improved ingredient functionality. The neutralization step often requires substantial energy / shear input to achieve the required pH. The application of a lower shear device will result in long process times and wasted raw materials from over addition of pH adjusting chemicals. IKA® Works Mixers utilize innovative Generator designs to ensure rapid mixing and full utilization of pH adjusting agents. Thus, customers see process times are reduced, pH control is improved, and raw materials usage is decreased.
