High-Viscosity Mixing: Choosing the Right System for the Job


Manufacturers of topical ointments, gels and lotions for BioPharma, personal care and other high-viscosity products face critical product quality challenges in their mixing processes.

The better these challenges are understood, the more specific the design and configuration of processing equipment can be, to optimize product quality and maximize plant productivity.

Unfortunately, conventional mixing systems may limit the ability of product manufacturers to optimize productivity and efficiency. The inefficiency of conventional dual-agitated vessels, multiple mixing vessels, and the operational complexity of recirculating- and bottom-entry shear systems can lead to increased cost and wasted materials.

This practical white paper outlines specific design and configuration specifications to ensure the right system is selected for your application. The whitepaper includes:

  • 3 must-have elements of a high-viscosity mixing system
  • 6 unique challenges of high-viscosity mixing
  • 4 limitations of conventional mixing systems

Selecting the most efficient and cost-effective mixing solution for your product can put your manufacturing process in the best position for success.
