High Shear Mixing Tanks

What Are High Shear Mixing Tanks?

High shear mixing is combined with liquid mixing, dry mixing and other tank functions such as heating and cooling to produce colloidal suspensions, emulsions and dry mixtures that cannot be satisfactorily produced with standard mixers. High shear mixers are commonly used in chemical, pharmaceutical/pharmacological, food, cosmetic and other applications that require higher flow rates, turbulence or rotational force to achieve consistent, repeatable output mixtures.

High shear mixers typically require higher power mixing motors, higher mixing speeds and specialized impeller designs, possibly with stronger hardened impeller drive shafts. Stainless steel is ideal for these high shear mixing tank applications. Non-sticking, easy to clean, easy to sterilize and available in standard and custom sizes, Mixing Tanks USA specializes in stainless steel tanks – it’s all we do. If you need high-quality stainless steel high shear mixing tanks for your application – one, ten, one hundred or more – we can build them for you.
