A colloid mill is a machine used for mixing solids into a liquid, where the client requires a particular particle size. The mixing head is adjustable to suit the required particle size.
A colloid mill is also a homogeniser as they both use a rotor/stator mixing head.
How does a Colloid Mill work?
The colloid mill has a mixing head which is made up of a rotor & a stator. The rotor & stator has holes where the rotor forces the product through the holes in the Stator. The hole size dictates the size of the particles in the final slurry, the hand wheel adjusts the gap between the rotor and the stator, this determines the size of the particles in the slurry.
What is a Colloid Mill used for?
A colloid mill is a High Shear Mixer used for rapid mixing of powders, solids and liquids of various SG’s into a Homogeneous slurry.
