High Shear Impeller
High Shear Impellers

High Shear Impellers

  • Used for application such as grinding, dispersing pigments and making emulsions
  • High shear impellers are operated at high speeds and are generally used for addition of the second phase
  • Saw tooth impeller generates heavy turbulence in the area around the impeller.
  • Star shaped impeller having tapered blades provides intermediate shear levels.
  • Start shape impeller is used in polymerization reactor.
  • High shear impellers may be used in combination with other types of impellers  such as anchor.
