High Shear Mixer Solutions for Waxes and Polishes
Waxes and polishes encompass a range of products including solid car waxes, liquid waxes, and shoe polishes. The manufacturing process for these products generally includes melting a solid wax, adding any suspending agents or minor ingredients, emulsifying the liquid wax with either a water or oil phase, cooling the product, and packaging. IKA® Works experience with these products allow us to supply customers with solutions ranging from an individual mixer to a complete plant.
ADVANTAGES OF IKA® WORKS MIXERS FOR MANUFACTURING WAXES AND POLISHES
- Decreased heating / melting time. The high shear mixing action of an IKA® Works rotor / stator mixer rapidly reduces the particle size of solids, improving heat transfer and speeding the heating and melting process.
- Improved product quality. IKA® Mixers provide a uniform dispersion of minor components and sub micron emulsions, with tight droplet size distributions.
- Turn key systems. IKA® Works has experience and designs for complete systems including process vessels, heat transfer equipment, low and high shear mixers, and plant controls.
