Powder incorporation and dispersion system with self cleaning injection nozzle

Applications: Powder Incorporation

When in contact with water, individual particles of the hydrophilic polymer immediately begin to swell.
The surfaces of these gradually swelling particles cross-link to form a tough outer skin which prevents the completion of the hydration process.
The result is an agglomeration of particles which are wetted on the outside only.
These appear at best as small transparent "fisheyes" but more normally as lumps of varying sizes.
Should one attempt to achieve an homogeneous dispersion by smoothing out the lumps by means of high shear methods, the polymer molecular chain may be broken. This will effect the end result considerably by altering the desired characteristics of the finished product.


The thickener or gelling agent is sucked out of a hopper, bigbag or a silo into an injection chamber where it is pre-wetted by the liquid phase. This pre-wetting process is guaranteed to happen without sticking.
The forced passage through the rotor-stator-system ensures a perfectly wetted out product.
A pump installed downstream achieves a controlled discharge of the product.
Sticking powders, deposits or lump formation on the contact surfaces of the powder/liquid injection chamber are totally eliminated during either continuous or short process intervals.

Advantages of YTRON-ZC

Extremely difficult to wet-out powders are processed without any problems
Free flowing powders mean that reproducible results will be achieved
Concentrations of over 20% can be achieved in one pass
Sticking, clogging or lump formation in the contact areas liquid/powder is totally avoided
The required concentration is achieved by the appropriate adjustment in the injection chamber
Powder consumption will be significantly reduced by the intense wetting out of the product
STRETCHING® of the molecular chain achieves a higher viscosity and therefore higher yields compared to conventional methods
Cleaning even between short process intervals and after a product change is totally unnecessary
Pre-wetting of the powders in the injection chamber without sticking
No damage of the product during process through the rotor/stator system, as the contact time takes only a fraction of a second
A pump installed downstream achieves the discharge of the uniform product even at high concentrations and viscosity
Sticking powders, desposits or lump formations are totally eliminated on both the contact surfaces of the "powder/liquid" injection chamber and in the dispersing reactor
Cleaning, even between short process intervals, is totally unnecessary
The required concentration is achieved by the appropriate adjustment of the injection chamber
