  2. The Advantages Of Mixing Under Vacuum
    4/14/2008
    Many of the advantages of mixing, blending, and drying under vacuum have been recognized for years. But until recently, vacuum has also been widely misunderstood. Many processors have considered vacuum essential — and cost-effective — only for the most demanding applications. Submitted by Charles Ross and Son Company
  3. A Guide To Understanding And Mixing Thickeners
    4/14/2008
    Rheology modifiers, commonly referred to as thickeners or viscosifiers, are ever-present in most products. The use of these additives cut across several process industries including food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and personal care, adhesives, textile, ceramics, paper, detergents, paints, inks and coatings, among others. They serve the purpose of not just altering the viscosity of the formulation but also that of providing specific functionality to the product. Submitted by Charles Ross and Son Company
  4. Mixing Emulsions Made Easy
    4/12/2008
    An emulsion, made up of an aqueous and an oil phase, is a common type of delivery system used in many different industries. The virtually infinite number of combinations of emulsion systems necessitates the continuing effort to study them and the processes by which they can be prepared efficiently.

  5. Choosing The Right Refill Design For Pharmaceutical Loss-In-Weight Feeders
    3/26/2008
    As the pharmaceutical industry continues to investigate and utilize continuous manufacturing practices, the roles of loss-in-weight (LIW) feeders and the subsequent accurate and consistent refill of these feeders are critical to the overall process. Submitted by K-Tron Process Group
  6. Understanding Surfactants And New Methods Of Dispersing Them
    3/26/2008
    Surface-active agents, or surfactants for short, are compounds that lower the surface tension of a liquid and lower the interfacial tension between two liquids. Surfactants are amphiphilic in nature, possessing both hydrophilic and lipophilic properties. The unique combination of these opposing properties in the same molecule is what enables a surfactant to reduce surface and interfacial tensions. Submitted by Charles Ross and Son Company
  7. The Art Of High Shear Mixing
    3/24/2008
    The high-shear rotor/stator mixer (HSM), once relegated to a relatively narrow niche of mixing applications, has become a mainstay in many applications in the chemical process industries (CPI). The ability to apply intense shear and shorten mixing cycles gives these mixers broad appeal for applications that require immiscible fluids to be formulated into emulsions, or agglomerated powders to be dispersed into a liquid medium.
