Intense Powder Shearing Action

The Quadro Ytron® ZC is a high speed disperser used for both inline single-pass and recirculating powder dispersion applications. The ZC is uniquely engineered to incorporate and disperse even the most difficult-to-wet powders, thickening agents, and rheology modifiers into a liquid stream in a single pass, in many cases eliminating the need to use additional dispersants or wetting agents.

Dramatic Powder and Batch Time Savings

The Quadro Ytron® ZC is able to achieve a solids dispersion of up to 70% by weight depending on the product, and minimal air entrainment greatly reduces product deaeration time. Since powder is completely hydrated and free of lumps after a single pass, product yield is maximized and wastage is reduced or eliminated. The high speed dispersion and hydration performance of the ZC often results in batch time reductions of up to 90%.

Continuous Dispersion System

The Quadro® Continuous Dispersion System (CDS) capitalizes on the advanced dispersion performance of the Quadro Ytron® ZC powder disperser, with the unique implementation of the Quadro® Uniform Film Interface (UFI) technology to continuously disperse powders into a controlled liquid stream. The UFI technology allows a high degree of control accuracy in continuous mixing applications, with achievable inline concentrations of 50% by weight or higher, depending on the application.
