SINGLE-PASS EMULSION AND HOMOGENIZATION

QUADRO ® LIQUIDS PROCESSING Ytron Z Emulsifier

Unmatched performance. Exceptional service.

SINGLE-PASS EMULSION AND HOMOGENIZATION
HIGH SHEAR PROCESSING

The Quadro Ytron® Z Emulsifier delivers unparalleled consistency and control of high shear process applications such as immiscible phase emulsifying/homogenizing, wet grinding, deagglomeration and fine solids dispersing.

High differential velocities

Incorporating up to three sets of toothed rotor/stator heads, the Z Emulsifier processes product while passing multiple shear zones in a single pass. The result is consistent, repeatable quality at capacities exceeding conventional multi-pass technology.

Tooling flexibility Rotor/stators for the Z Emuslifier are available in a variety of slot sizes which allows for a high degree of fine tuning. Through tooling selection aided by our application engineering team, as well as varying rotor tip speed, the amount of shear can be precisely controlled.

Scalable throughput

Four sanitary models are available from pilot plant capacities to >300 gpm (1136 lpm). Throughput can be scaled without altering product characteristics, texture or particle size distribution with the unique implementation of Quadro’s turbulent kinetic energy model.

ENHANCED YTRON Z PERFORMANCE

In a single-pass, the Z Emulsifier achieves tight particle size distribution with typical d90 distributions between 1-5 micron.
