Pilot Plant

Test before you buy!

IKA operates a modern R&D facility and a well-equipped trial equipment fleet that allows customers to test products on-site with IKA equipment. The Trial Fleet includes a full range of IKA high shear mixers consisting of over 80 stand-alone machines in various sizes that allow customers to test on any product for any mixing application. IKA also offers batch processing plants such as our Standard Production Plant as well as solid-liquids mixing plants available for on-site testing. Auxiliary equipment is available upon request.

Not ready to have our equipment sent to you? Send your samples to us for proof of concept & in-house testing! Contact us today to schedule your test; process@ikausa.com.

Machines Available for In-House and/or On-Site trials

magic LAB®

Unique and multifunctional small-scale laboratory machine. It is designed for mixing, dispersing, wet milling and incorporation of powders into liquids.

Labor / Process Pilot

Ideal pilot scale inline high shear mixer with identical parameters to the IKA 2000 series, thus ensuring reliable scale-up to full production.

magic PLANT

A laboratory scale process plant for batch mixing and emulsifying of low viscous masses up to masses just about capable of flowing.
In-house trials only.

Pilotina

Dry mill available in 3 different configurations; the cutting mill, the impact mill or the universal mill which allows for both impact and cutting.
In-house trials only.

Dispax Reactor (DR)

Multiple stage high shear mixer with up to three rotor-stator sets. Rotor/stator sets are interchangeable, and are offered in five types; 2P pumping, Coarse, Medium, Fine, and Super-Fine.

Ultra Turrax (UTL)

Single stage high shear mixer with one rotor-stator set. Rotor/stator sets are offered in five types; Shear pumping, Coarse, Medium, Fine, and Super-Fine.

Super Dispax Reactor (DRS)

Multiple stage ultra high shear mixer with up to 40 m/s tip speed. Rotor/stator sets are interchangeable, and are offered in five types; Shear pumping Coarse, Medium, Fine, and Super-Fine.

MHD

A patented design that uses a mechanical feed method, instead of a vacuum. The MHD can incorporate high concentrations of solids into liquids with very high viscosities.

CMS

This mixer uses a Venturi design to create a vacuum that pulls in the solids, either through a hopper, or a wand. It produces high flow rates, which are well suited for tank re-circulating arrangements, as well as tank-to-tank processes.

SLT

Ideal mixer for mixing Guar, Polyacrylamide based polymers and xanthan gum. The Solid-Liquid Turrax allows for higher powder concentrations, faster hydration rates and provides an enhanced quality of gels.


MK – Colloid Mill
A cone shaped rotor andstator has three stages with increasing teeth fineness for pre-milling, milling and fine milling. The gap between the rotor and stator is adjustable for adjusting the amount of milling required.

MKO – Cone Mill
A cone shaped rotor and stator has anabrasive coating that acts like a stone mill for ultra fine milling. The gap between the rotor and stator is adjustable for adjusting the amount of milling required.

MCD – Stone Disk Mill

The Corundum Disk Mill MCD2000 is an inline machine for milling. The cores of this machine are the two corundum disks. One is rotating and the other one is fixed. Available with different grains to adapt to the milling process.In-house trials only.
