Continuous mixing solutions are often the preferred choice when high product throughputs are required or a considerable amount of automation is involved.

The extremely versatile INLINE FORMULA® SOL High Shear Mixer can be used to improve an existing production line or replace existing equipment. More than just a tank with a bottom-mounted high shear mixing device, the customizable multirotor integrated in the INLINE FORMULA® SOL High Shear Mixer comprises a high shear mixing device for effective dispersion and a centrifugal pump that feeds the downstream process.

Internal and external recirculation

GEA INLINE FORMULA® SOL High Shear Mixer 1000L

Our INLINE FORMULA® SOL High Shear Mixer can be equipped with both internal and external recirculation. The internal recirculation reintroduces the product into the tank in the opposite direction of the rotor/stator flow. This creates a more chaotic mixing, which then functions as a vortex breaker despite volume. The external recirculation can lead the product to a buffer tank before it is reintroduced to the mixer or for further downstream processing.

Key benefits of the GEA INLINE FORMULA® SOL High Shear Mixer

  • A continuous process that can run in-line with the downstream process
  • Just-in-time production – preparation of the batch at the time needed
  • Zero to minimal storage time of the mixed product before further processing
  • High volume powder intake by vacuum
  • Rapid wetting of powders into liquids without “fish eyes” or agglomerates
  • Hygienic as standard
  • Closed vacuum system and powder suction enables highest level of working environment and utilization of ingredients
