IKA MHD Powder-Liquid Mixer Is Ideal for Continuous Processing Of Food, Pharmaceutical and Chemical Products
Wilmington, N.C. - IKA Works' MHD provides single-step incorporation and dispersing of solids into liquids with a patented design that eliminates excess aeration. The MHD can be combined with a solids feeder, bulk bag unloader, and other equipment to create a complete turnkey system for continuous processing.
The unique mixer can process solids concentrations up to 90 percent as well as extremely viscous liquids, well beyond the capacity of other powder-liquid mixers. By mixing liquids and powders into a homogeneous product in one, dust-free process, MHD mixers can greatly reduce capital and operating costs by eliminating the need for tanks and other auxiliary equipment. The mixers accommodate a variety of interchangeable mixing tools allowing it to be optimized according to the application.
Available in six sizes, the IKA MHD offers powder feed rates up to 25,000 pounds per hour, and nominal liquid flow rates as high as 175 gpm. Adding pumps and feeding devices pushes feed rates even higher. MHD mixers maintain constant tip speeds on all sizes, which will ensure consistent scale-up. Additionally, the mixers can be operated in re-circulation mode for enrichment processes.
Established in 1910, IKA maintains worldwide manufacturing and support facilities. IKA Works has continually grown to serve an increasing demand for mixing solutions. IKA manufactures in-line and batch mixers, colloid mills, and complete turnkey systems with unique applications in the chemical, pharmaceutical, petroleum, and food industries.
