Silverson food mixer in good working condition
Made in England
Over 40 interchangeable mixing assemblies are available for L5 Series Laboratory mixers. The unit is finished in a tough, easy to clean, non-chip white nylon coating. All wetted parts are in 316L stainless steel with the exception of the bush which may be bronze alloy or PTFE. The mixing unit may be effortlessly raised and lowered using the touch pad control, which offers increased cleanliness and reliability.
The latest development in high shear lab mixing – the new Silverson L5M-A – is ideal for all laboratory work, research and development, QA analysis and small scale production in all industries.
The L5M-A Laboratory Mixer is suitable for the widest range of applications – mixing, emulsifying, homogenizing, disintegrating and dissolving – with an efficiency and flexibility unmatched by other machines. With a capacity from 1ml up to 12 liters and the ability to mix in-line with flow rates up to 20 liters/minute, they offer excellent reproducibility when scaling up to full-scale production and provide an accurate and easy means of forecasting the performance of larger Silverson machines under full-scale working conditions.
Silverson Mixer Homogenizers are fast and efficient and are capable of producing a fine droplet or particle size, typically in the range of 2 – 5 microns. This degree of homogenization is suitable for the vast majority of products, such as creams and ointments, lotions, sauces and flavor emulsions.
Silverson offers a range of in-tank and In-Line mixer homogenizers for these applications. The precision-machined Silverson workhead generates exceptionally high shear rates in a three stage process that rapidly homogenizes the product to the required uniformity.
For the few applications that demand submicron particle or globule sizes a high-pressure homogenizer may be required. Where this is the case, passing the product through a high shear Silverson Mixer Homogenizer first will dramatically improve throughput, process efficiency and reduce operating costs. This is because a high-pressure homogenizer works better when fed with a premix of uniform and fine globule or particle size, allowing the product to pass through the homogenizer at a much faster rate, normally in a single pass.
