PHOTO GEL DISPERSION
OBJECT: Complete dispersion with no aeration of Carbopol 910 in water at 7% concentration.
PROBLEM: Aqueous pigment slurry and CMC prepared in 300 gallon reactor containing axial flow turbine. Cannot use this mixing method with Carbopol 910. Dry lumps are producted and concentration maximum limited.
SOLUTION: Model D-6000 Vacuum Dispershear installed above batch vessel.
AB MIXER: Model D-6000 Vacuum Dispershear
BENEFITS: Reaction Vacuum Dispershear prepared 7% Carbopol 910 in water at 10 gpm. and dispensed into reactor. Higher quality pigment dispersion possible when Carbopol replaces CMC.
