Mixing Equipment for the Chemical Industry
Admix industrial mixing equipment is installed at chemical manufacturing plants around the world. The batch and inline dispersion mixers are available with industrial painted motors, Class 1-2 Div. 1-2 explosion proof motors to meet the criteria for Hazardous Environments.
The industrial mixers by Admix employ high intensity (shear) mixing to disperse ceramics, deagglomerate powders into liquids, and eliminate fisheyes for more uniform pre-mixes and end products. Admix has success across numerous applications including the emulsion and dispersion of pigments, additives, polymers, plastics, adhesives, resins, polyols, and many other materials – click here for a list of applications.

Equipment and Services for Chemical Processing from ADMIX
Below is a list of equipment and services in which Admix offers that are ideal for chemical processing. Feel free to click the links provided throughout the article to read more about the efficiency and different applications for the chemical mixing equipment.
Dynashear inline mixer – Available with camlock or NPT fittings, the Dynashear is an inline dual stage disperser / emulsifier for inline continuous processing or batch processing with recirculation. It will instantly blend, dissolve, deagglomerate, disperse, and emulsify a wide range of fluids and semi-fluids.
The Dynashear is designed to provide maximum versatility to meet your chemical processing needs. Whether you’re looking for a stand-alone inline mixer, a mixer to augment your batch process agitator, or further product refinement, the Dynashear ensures consistent quality with precise reproduceability.
The Dynashear enables you to refine your pre-mix so that there’s less wear on your mills from undispersed material. Designed for 24/7 operation, it offers flow rates up to 175 GPM and seal pressure ratings up to 450 PSI at 400° F
Fastfeed powder induction and dispersion systems – when you need instant 100% dispersion of your powder ingredients, look no further than the Admix Fastfeed. This powerful powder induction and dispersion system features our proven high shear mixing technology and an ergonomic design. Its skid-mounted, inline system vacuums and conveys up to 500 pounds per minute from the safety of floor level. It wets out, hydrates, and disperses powders in a single pass, instantly creating a 100% completely homogeneous mixture free of lumps, agglomerates and fisheyes. See the latest Fastfeed video to learn how it can help your process.
The Rotosolver high shear mixer is a flagship product of Admix's with thousands of installations for chemical high shear mixing and blending around the world. For in-tank processes requiring 100% wetting out of powders, the Rotosolver’s patented design provides higher overall shear rates, improved dispersion, and reduced energy consumption for volumes up to 10,000 gallons.
The Rotosolver outperforms competitors in key performance areas. It is designed to efficiently apply every bit of energy to produce either mechanical or hydraulic shear and optimally direct flow that is beneficial to the process. For various applications, it has delivered up to:
- 50% less energy consumption
- 600% higher flow rates
- 20% higher tip speeds
- 6 times more throughput than conventional mixers
Next, the Boston Shearmill wet mill/homogenizer outperforms conventional shear pumps and colloid mills and provides very high throughputs at extreme shear rates. This heavy duty inline rotor/stator machine delivers 24/7 operation; reduced solids particles with minimal dust formation; and withstands uneven flow patterns, jolts, and pressure fluctuations. For milling of soft particles to <1 micron, or hard particles down to 1-2 microns, the Boston Shearmill produces superior particle size reduction, often in a single pass at high production rates. Choose from over 20 variations from course to ultra-fine.
Lastly, Admix offers Static Blending: If blending two liquid streams together, such as in polymer applications, the static mixer by Admix is ideal. The concept behind a static mixer is simple: fluid flowing through a pipe is channeled through a geometric arrangement of mixing elements. The element geometry within the housing causes the flow to divide, mix, divide again and mix again until complete. Click here to read more on the Admix static mixer and blender.
Applications for Admix Chemical Mixing and Blending Equipment
Emulsions: Admix mixers produce emulsions with small, uniform droplet size. These emulsions lead to increased shelf-life, stability and quality without the use of a high-pressure homogenizer.
- Wax emulsions
- Paper sizing emulsions
- Coatings and paints
- Sealants (e.g., wood products)
- Polymer and polymerization precursors
- Anti-foam emulsions
- Monomer emulsions
- Incorporation of low-HLB surfactants into aqueous systems
Dispersions and Mixing: Admix mixers and dispersers employ high shear and high intensity mixing to disperse ceramics, deagglomerate powders into primary particles, and eliminate fisheyes in hydrocolloids and thickeners. Our high shear equipment produces more uniform end products much more quickly and efficiently than conventional dispersers.
- Coatings (Automotive, Industrial, Architectural, etc.)
- Drilling Muds
- Agrochemicals, Crop protection and fertilization products
- Car polishes and polishing compounds
- Dispersion of powders
- Clay dispersions
- Disperse iron oxides for magnetic media
- Metal oxides
- Dispersions for capacitors
- Dispersions of ceramics
- Produce CMP (chemical mechanical polishing) compounds
- Pulp and paper applications
- Paints & Pigments, organic and inorganic
- Gel formation for batteries or battery paste
- Disperse and hydrate Carbopol, Rhodopol, Natrisol, and other viscosity-modifying ingredients
