HIGH SHEAR SINGLE-PASS POWDER WETTING & DISPERSING

QUADRO ® LIQUIDS PROCESSING Ytron ZC Disperser

Unmatched performance. Exceptional service.

SINGLE-PASS AND CONTINUOUS HIGH SPEED POWDER DISPERSION
INTENSE POWDER SHEARING ACTION

The Quadro Ytron® ZC Disperser is uniquely engineered to disperse even the most difficult to wet powders into a liquid stream in a single pass. The advanced design of the ZC Disperser’s rotor/stator reactor provides intense shearing of powders prior to hydration. This leads to homogeneous suspensions free of lumps and “fish eyes”.

Sanitary design options
There are four models designed to meet 3-A Sanitary Standards, offering liquid throughputs from pilot scale capacity up to several hundred gallons per minute production. Dust free options to transfer powders are also available, including wanding accessories and third party solutions such as IBC (intermediate bulk container) systems.

Quadro Continuous Dispersion System (CDS)
The Quadro CDS is designed to continuously disperse powders into a controlled liquid stream, optimizing dispersion efficiency and powder concentration control within a compact footprint. Every CDS capitalizes on the benefits of the ZC Disperser, with the unique implementation of a Quadro UFI.

UFI technology
Uniform Film Interface (UFI) technology provides a high degree of control accuracy in continuous mixing applications, with achievable inline concentrations up to 50% by weight or higher. The sealed environment around the UFI also minimizes dusting in process areas.

Dramatic powder & batch time savings
A near perfect vacuum is created in the ZC’s reactor housing, promoting high speed incorporation rates and up to 70% solids flow by weight in a single pass with minimal air entrainment. Powder is completely hydrated after passing through the Disperser, which maximizes product yield and reduces/eliminates waste. The high speed dispersion and hydration performance of the ZC technology can reduce batch times up to 90%, while eliminating the need for dispersion aids such as preheating the liquid phase, or pre-dispersing ingredients into a non-aqueous solvent. Even with difficult products such as hydrocolloid gums, cellulose gums and carbomers, complete dispersion is achieved in a single pass.

THE EZFEED OPTION

  • Ergonomic powder dump table integrated into the design
  • Large enough table top to stage bags of powder
  • Stainless steel construction and gasketed hopper design are well-suited to wash down duty environments and sanitary processing
  • Maintenance-friendly features such as tool-less disassembly and one-handed base adjustment allows COP items to be removed with ease
  • Product contact areas below the powder valve can be left connected and easily cleaned with a typical CIP process

Continuous inline dispersion set-up: 1. Continuous feeder, 2. Uniform film interface (UFI) 3. ZC Powder Disperser.
