YTRON-XC Powder disperser

Gentle dispersion of easily wettable powders: 


The XC Principle

Powders and compounds with a tendency to form lumps are continuously incorporated inLine and effectively dispersed. This means that even in a single pass, very high concentrations can be achieved. The first stage in the reactor head creates a strong negative pressure and sucks the solids phase in. Immediately after contact with the liquid phase, this premix of the 2 phases is impelled against the XC impact chamber plates where the liquid is absorbed into the powder phase. The second stage discharges the homogeneously wetted product.

Important advantages of YTRON-XC

  • Complete wetting out of the powders in a single pass
  • Concentrations of up to 40% are possible in a single pass
  • No air entrainment other than the air included in the powder phase
  • Batch time reduced to the minimum
  • Higher product yield due to the intensive wetting of the powders
  • Low intensity mixing due to high impact frequency instead of high shear
  • Feeding from Big Bag or silo
  • CIP and SIP

Example of a process

Batch process

  • Re-circulation through mixed vessel
  • for high reproducibility

Inline process

  • Inline process without recirculation (continuous)
  • for short process times
  • Powder addition from big bags
  • Dosage of raw materials required 

Some examples of powders which can be processed easily are:

  • Acrylic polymers
  • Agar-Agar
  • Activated carbon
  • Alginate
  • Bentonite clay
  • Cellulose ethers (MC,CMC, HPMC)
  • Guar pit flour
  • Hectorites
  • Locust bean gum
  • Cocoa powder
  • Silicia
  • Milk powders
  • Milk protein
  • Pektin
  • Rework of different products
  • Soy flour and soy protein
  • Starch
  • Wheat flour
  • Wheat gluten
  • Xanthan gum
  • ... and many more
