When using a batch system for the
diluting process, several problems may occur:
Because of the big difference in viscosity of the
components, it is difficult to mix them with
conventional mixers or stirrers
Large lumps remain and are very difficult to be
Long mixing times are required to achieve a homogen
When using non-appropriate mixing technology, white
stipplings can be found in the product
Wrong handling and operation result in incorporation
of air into the product and the formation of a stable
foam and a high concentration of air in the end
A continuous dilution using an Inline system avoids all
these problems and may be realised with a ystral SLES
dilution system. The system can produce SLES dilutions,
emulsions and suspensions and any other products with up
to three different liquid components where an intensive
mixing or dispersing is required.
Main component of the system is a three stage Inline
dispersing and homogenising machine.
Additional to the normal axial inlet this machine is
equipped with two or three additional radial inlets
directly into the dispersing chambers for additional
dosing of components.
The watery phase concentrically comes into the
dispersing chamber, and through the radial inlets SLES
and preservative liquid are added.
When producing emulsions, the disperse phase and the
emulsifier is dosed through the radial connections while
the continuous phase is added concentrically through the
The system is operated and controlled by a switchboard
with integrated SPS.
