PROCESS-PILOT is the most versatile and highly reliable inline laboratory dispersing machine. It is designed for solid-liquid mixing, homogenizing, emulsifying, suspending and wet milling. The PROCESS-PILOT 2000/4 is suitable for a wide range of applications, particularly in the chemical, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, plastics, colours and food industries. It is uniquely designed with advance technology and is available with 8 interchangeable modules. It can be customized to fit particular process demands. Important process parameters such as circumferential speed, tools and mixing chamber geometry are structurally identical to those of the IKA 2000 inline production machines: UTL, DBI, DR, DRS, CMS, MHD, MK and MKO. Therefore, the PROCESS-PILOT ensures a reliable scale-up by offering the possibility to work with the same method from formulation development to mass production. The PROCESS-PILOT enables working under pressure/ vacuum as well as at elevated temperatures or with abrasive materials.
The basic inline machine is equipped with the single-stage dispersing module ULTRA-TURRAX® UTL. It is best suited for batch applications and can be adapted for the manufacturing of dispersions from coarse to fine. Compared to a conventional stirrer, the mixing time is reduced by up to 50%.
Depending on the application, the basic unit can be modified quickly with different working modules.
