Optionally available modules for LABOR-PILOTs:
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.
The module DISPAX-REACTOR® DR converts the LABOR-PILOT into a multi-stage high capacity dispersing machine for fine particle size reduction. With just one pass, the module DR does typically achieve fine dispersions with an extremely narrow particle size distribution. It also guarantees an optimum homogeneity, which is an important pre-condition for the long-time stability of emulsions or suspensions.
The module MHD is designed for a fully continuous incorporation of powders into liquids. By use of this module, the mixing relation of solid and liquid should be volumetrically or gravimetrically controlled. Depending on the product characteristics, dispersions with viscosities up to 50 Pas or solid contents up to 80% can be achieved just after one pass.
The modules Colloid Mill MK and Cone Mill MKO are used for wet or fine milling of hard and granular raw materials or for the production of finest emulsions as well as for improving of quality of finished dispersions. The MK module consists of two cones with differently directed flow channels on their surfaces. The cones can be shifted against each other to a minimum distance, thus varying friction as well as flow capacity. By adjusting the milling gap, the achievable particle size can be controlled. The MKO module works on the same principle as the MK module except the outlet area of its cones is coated with abrasion-resistant tungsten carbide. This results in an enlarged friction surface that enables to produce even finer suspensions at reduced flow.
