High Shear Machines
Used High Shear Equipment
Granulator High Shear (re-phrase: this is cut & paste) High shear granulation is an effective means for turning powders into dense granules for tableting or coating. To create the granules, powders are added to the mixing bowl and the bowl is sealed. If necessary a dry binder may be added with the powders or dispersed into the granulating liquid. A large impeller spins at fairly slow speeds spinning the powders into a vortex. After the powders are blended together, liquid is added to the product using a pump or pressurized container. A chopper tool located in the bowl spins at fairly high speeds shearing the granules and removing air. The mixing continues until the desired end granule size and density is achieved. End point is often determined via power consumption or torque on the main mixing tool drive. The granulated product may be dried in the mixing bowl, if equipped for vacuum drying, or discharged for fluid bed drying.

Vector Model CF-360 304 S/S Granulator is capable of handling 1.5 to 4kg (bulk density 0.7) of product. Charging capacity: 0.75 – 2kg. Rotor diameter: 360mm. Rotor direction: Clockwise. Rotor speed (variable): 40-400rpm. Main application is agglomeration, granulating, and coating for any kind of powder. The specially designed rotor is installed in a large stationary cylinder (stator) and a bed of powders, granules or pills forms a fluidizing doughnut ring along the wall of the stator with a rope twisting like motion which is created by joint forces of centrifugal force, rotating speed, gravity and fluidization air directed through the slit. When binding or coating solution and powders are sprayed onto this fluidizing twisted doughnut ring of the bed, they are mixed and develop very quickly and uniformly into the ring of the bed and therefore powders, granules or pills can be granulated, agglomerated or coated uniformly within a limited time. Air from high pressure blower is directed to the chamber through heat exchanger to the slit (a 300-500 micron opening) which helps eliminate clogging of powders and granules in the chamber.
