Mix sticky, viscous and difficult granulations

High Viscosity Blade & Bowl set from the Caleva Multi Lab.  Mix and blend small quantities of difficult materials using the special high viscosity bowl and blade attachment set built for the Caleva Multi Lab.

Our high viscosity mixing bowl and blade set is designed for mixing and blending of small quantities (10 to 50 g) of those more difficult and more viscous mixtures when the high shear standard bowl and blade set is not suitable. Our design team have been working to develop a solution to this occasional request from both existing and potential CML users.

Caleva high viscosity mixing blades and bowl

The high viscosity bowl and blade set been developed and designed together with some current and potential CML users.. A few clients been experiencing stuck blades or poor homogeneity and mix quality with certain types of specialist formulations. After extensive development testing this additional option is now available for users of the Caleva Multi Lab. The two contra rotating rotating blades, rotating at different speeds, with a fixed ratio of 2 to 1 has proved to be especially efficient with some of the difficult materials used in  few circumstances.

If you are experiencing the same problems then please contact us so we can explore how this innovation might be used to solve the specific challenges you may face.

The CML can be purchased with either the standard high shear bowl or the new high viscosity bowl and blade set or both. Talk to us before the purchase decision is made so that we can determine which of the two will be more suitable for you your application.

What type of pharmaceutical or catalyst extruder do I need?

All extrusion processes require the generation of pressure within the material to be extruded. When materials are put under pressure heat is generated. This cannot be avoided but different extrusion types generate different amounts of heat. There are basically three different types of extruder and t... Read More

Catalyst Pellets cracked! The strange apple sauce method

Over the past couple of years I have worked with a huge number of chemical engineering teams, trying to crack the optimum base for a catalyst pellet. After hours of trials and research, I am pleased to say, we’ve done it! Read More

Spheronization Barrier Technique from Caleva

OK, so this was a tip I discovered a while back, but now it’s becoming more and more beneficial for me in practice when working with sticky, viscous materials.  Perhaps this will help you too? Read More
