The Master Plant™ is a complete processing system including vessel, piping, valves, controls and two mixers. It is designed to emulsify, homogenize or blend virtually any material.Typical applications include the production of wax emulsions, creams, lotions, ointments, make-up, toothpaste, soaps and injectionables. Capacities range from 2.5 to 1000 gallons.Unit’s design eliminates the need for additional equipment such as circulating pumps and transfer pumps. Two components in the system — an integral spiral agitator and a high shear mixing unit — combine to provide complete mixing, homogenization or dispersion, plus product transfer and system cleaning. The system’s spiral agitator and mixing unit are both capable of handling viscosities from 1 cps to more than 100,000 cps. The agitator and vessel jacket can be heated or cooled improving heat transfer by up to 20%. It also includes scrapers that provide excellent circulation in the vessel and improve heat transfer efficiency with sticky or highly viscous products. Reversible operation helps optimize mixing throughout the process. Solids or liquids can be added directly into the mixer for high or low shear mixing with no lumps or agglomerates. Both the agitator and the mixer are suitable for CIP and SIP cleaning. Various mixing and dispersing tools can be easily interchanged.
