Batch dispersing machine for bottom entry into vessels
When your process requires high performance mixing or dispersion but conventional stirring methods cannot be employed due to access or other restrictions, you need a machine designed for bottom entry into a vessel.
Bottom entry mixing in a simple and compact package
IKA’s Ultra-Turrax UTE is a high performance dispersing machine designd for bottom entry into vessels. It mixes, emulsifies, and disperses free-flowing or liquid media with a viscosity of up to 5.000 mPas in batch operation. The units use the rotor-stator principal and a wide variety of generators is available to tailor the process to your needs. No strong vortices or product aeration occurs as a result of the mixing action even when the vessel is filled to a very low level or is emptied during the stirring operation.
The units are compact and simple, primarily consisting of a motor, a a rotor drive shaft, a dispersion tool (generator) and a mounting flange conbined by a lantern housing. The shaft seal is of an easily maintained mechanical type with several variants depending on the particular application. Options for speed control, special materials, and special surface finishes also exist. The units are available with batch capacities from 70 to 4.000 liters.
