Description
MATERIAL: Calcium oxide, fatty acids.
PROBLEM: Disperse 10% by weight lime in water. Continue dispersing as hot fatty acid is slowly added to create smooth emulsion.
RESULTS: Recirculates at 50-12 gpm depending upon the viscosity which changes from 200 to 5,000 cps. agitated vessel.
AB MIXER: Model 6 x 3, toothed impeller/liner, 20 HP, 1800 RPM, 1/8″ grid. Recirculating to 5,000 gallon agitated vessel.
BENEFITS: Major maintenance problems with high pressure piston homogenizer eliminated. Plant no longer spent $100,000 per year on piston homogenizer maintenance.
