From Lab Mixers to Full Production

Quadro Liquids has a range of high-speed, sanitary industrial mixing equipment that is suitable for liquid blending, powder dispersion & emulsification.

Inline Powder Disperser

Quadro Ytron® ZC - is a high shear 'single-pass' inline powder disperser with the ability to continuously disperse difficult-to-wet powders. This includes rheology modifiers (for example, viscosity-building powders) into a controlled liquid stream. This makes it ideal for creating products with consistent viscosity and texture.

Homogenizer and Wet Mill

Quadro® HV - is a unique high-velocity rotor-stator mixer used for submicron homogenizing, high shear wet milling, and suspension micronization. Quadro Liquids Industrial liquid mixers excel at achieving submicron homogenization, rapidly and efficiently to improve product quality.

Inline Emulsifier Mixer

Quadro Ytron® Z - is a multi-row toothed rotor-stator high shear industrial mixer designed to reduce bypassing in macro-emulsion processing, homogenization, modifying product textures, and fine particle dispersions. This industrial high-shear inline mixer significantly reduces mixing times to boost your bottom line.

In-tank Mixer

Quadro Ytron® Jet Mixer - is a low-shear in-tank mixer designed for highly efficient liquid blending, solids suspension, powder incorporation, and dissolving of solids. This robust industrial mixer is just one example of our comprehensive line of superior mixing equipment offerings for pharmaceuticals, food, personal care, cosmetics, and chemicals.

Why choose Quadro®

Quadro’s industrial mixers have been designed to improve on technologies once considered “good enough.” We deconceptualize and re-engineer to deliver an improved solution.

Discover why our high-speed mixing equipment is different from the knowledge base article high shear mixing facts.

Quadro offers a full line of industrial mixing equipment, starting with the low shear energy, in-tank Quadro® Y-tron® Jet mixer. This superior industrial mixer excels at relatively gentle mixing tasks, which may be required in industries ranging from pharmaceuticals and food to personal care and chemicals.

Quadro® Ytron ZC

The line continues with the Quadro® Ytron ZC. This unique inline powder dispenser is custom engineered to streamline the incorporation of difficult-to-disperse ingredients in personal care & cosmetics, food & beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical applications.

This workhorse industrial mixer excels at inline single-pass and recirculating powder applications. Featuring significantly minimized air entrainment and dramatically shorter dispersion times, this machine can slash batch times by as much as 90% compared to older, less efficient technologies.

Quadro HV homogenizer series

Our equipment line doesn’t stop there. For still more delicate, demanding tasks such as submicron processing or suspension micronization, our line continues with the Quadro® HV-Emulsifier and Wet Mill, offering the lowest cost per kg-hr in the industry. This versatile machine can easily be tooled to optimize its use as either a homogenizer or a wet mill. 

The Quadro® HV homogenizer series provides more process shear energy than a conventional rotor-stator mill and is ideally suited for processing submicron emulsions or for suspension micronization.

Advantages include:

  • finer particle sizes in far less time
  • easier cleaning and maintenance compared to competing machines,
  • and significant capital cost savings.

Selecting the right mixer

There are various myths surrounding high shear mixing that discourage people from using the equipment. However, selecting the right mixer is a matter of understanding how it will be used. High shear mixers are ideal for creating homogeneous mixtures and emulsifications, even from traditionally difficult-to-blend materials. 

High shear mixers are ideal for creating homogenous mixtures and emulsifications, even from traditionally difficult-to-blend materials.

In high shear mixing, a high-speed rotor applies enough velocity to generate shear, this reduces the size of particles to the point where they can be more easily combined with other substances. In rotor-stator high shear mixers, the stator creates a shearing action as well.
