Working with Ginhong as your Mixer Supplier
In almost all manufacturing industries, meeting production demands in a timely manner on a daily basis is key to appease top executive managers. Therefore, when it comes to production, faster is better. But when it comes to meeting product qualities and customer specs, less is more. How manufacturers meet daily demands is well rooted on how efficient the machine is working. Can it perform faster production with less to no downtimes, promote uptimes, and maintain the best product quality?
How well do you know the machine you’re handling? It’s not just how well you know it, but how far your manufacturers go to reach out to you even after sales has been closed, provides you with fast solution, machine education, maintenance and operation.
Ginhong not only engineers and manufactures top of the line Mixer Machines for homogenization mixing, but also knows how to care for suppliers’ demands. This is not just about giving the best kind of homogenizer mixer every company needs; it’s also about being the best service provider among others – be it attending urgent needs or unexpected demand.
Is a High Shear Mixer What You Need? All about High Shear Mixers
High Shear Mixers are generally used for mixing products that are not suitable to be mixed at low speed agitation. High Shear Mixers have tip speeds ranging from 10 to 50 m/s and have a very high shear rate ranging from 20,000 to 100,000 s-1. For these specifications, High Shear Mixers are suitable for dispersing solids into liquids, emulsifying immiscible liquids, combining individual products into their proper ratios and dispersion, and breaking down solids and agglomerates.
What is special about Ginhong High Shear Mixers
What sets Ginhong High Shear Mixer apart from other types of agitation mixers is its ability to mill or break down large particle ingredients with a:
- Powerful method – applying high shearing action between materials; and in a
- Refined manner – imparting special physical and mechanical properties and characteristics to the mixed products.
This makes Ginhong High Shear Mixers the best choice for dispersed size reduction and reactive mixing of liquid–liquid emulsification and solid–liquid suspension. Emulsifying liquid to liquid products means dispersing one liquid in a second immiscible liquid, such as mixing oil in water. This is a common processing method for cosmetics, creams, shampoos, sunscreen and ointments.
Intensively Designed, Engineered and Manufactured in a Packaged Deal Fit for Many Industrial Factories
Achieving a homogeneous mix is vital for a high quality end product, but this is difficult to achieve in practice due to a wide range of factors. For Ginhong, quality is priority and they continue to provide superior quality equipment with the help of their designers and engineers.
Ginhong is very proud to introduce the best equipment performance as a result of intensive Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations, and Experimental Fluid Dynamics (EDF). These calculations and experiments were taken into consideration, along with various key design factors such as rotor diameter and rotational speed, distance between the rotor and the stator, mixing time, and the number of generators in the series to reduce power draw, perfect flow pattern precision and maximization of energy dissipation to compete productively in the market. Its mass and heat transfer properties stand as a potential, as it intensifies chemical reaction processes making it more efficient in achieving desired results.
Along with this, their engineers can customize the size and orientation of the mixer with accordance to the client’s requirements suitable to fit in the client’s workshop or factory.
How High Shear Mixer Works
How Ginhong High Shear Mixer works is very simple. An electric motor drives the shaft inside the mixing tank. This shaft is coupled with an impeller which it is rotated at a high speed, driving materials introduced into the mixing tank with strong centrifugal force within it. The components are introduced in the mixing tank at variable speeds, which is essential as some mixing procedure stages don’t require vigorous mixing.
Unlike any typical mixer, the High Shear Mixer incorporates a high fluid shear inside the tank to emulsify or homogenize the material. Fluid undergoes shear when there is a difference in velocity of one area of the fluid to another area. Thus, the materials which are conveyed towards the top of the tank by the force of the revolving lower blades will then be subjected to the powerful shearing force of the upper blades.
Material particle breakup undergoes three essential processes inside the high shear mixer: erosion, rupture then finally, shattering.
In the industry, there are two popular types of High Shear Mixer: 1) Batch High Shear Mixer and 2) Inline High Shear Mixer
How Batch High-Shear Mixers Work
In a batch high-shear mixer, the materials are fed from the top of the tank, which contains the mixer being mounted on a rotating shaft at the bottom of the tank. This type of mixer processes materials way faster than the Inline High Shear Mixer type, approximately twice its speed. As such, the Batch High-Shear Mixer is often used by companies with large or bulk volumes of processing materials and where space limitation is not much of a concern.
Designs for this type of mixer may vary: it can be self-cleaning or not. Some designs of the batch high shear mixer can clean by itself during an operating run, while others have to be cleaned manually during scheduled plant preventive maintenance.
How Inline high-shear mixers Work
An Inline High Shear Mixer, on the other hand, is housed with an inlet at one end and an outlet at the other, by which the mixer runs in a continuous operation. The impeller of the mixer acts as a centrifugal pumping device.
Since the Inline High Shear Mixer runs in a continuous manner and is a more compact configuration than the Batch High Shear Mixer, it is more suitable and recommended for manufacturing plants with limited space. The advantages for this type of mixer are the batch times are reduced, promotes lesser by-product wastes and it has a higher process repeatability.
Mixers all comply with Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) regulations enforced by the FDA. CGMP is vital for quality control of manufacturing plants as it entails proper design, monitoring, and control of manufacturing processes and procedures.
Adherence to the CGMP regulations assures the identity, strength, and quality of manufacturing operations. CGMP also establishes strong quality management systems, robust operating procedures and investigating product quality deviations.
A distinctive feature of the High Shear Mixer relatively is how fast and convenient it is in mixing, emulsifying and homogenizing components as compared to the length of time it takes to get the job done by other conventional high shear mixer.
Fast inherent reaction rates
This property owes to the High Shear Mixer’s ability to intensify and enhance chemical reaction with its high degree of concentrated input energy that produce superior dispersion than traditional mixing methods.
Less Air Entrainment
The overall mixing system forms a close loop, meaning it prevents unwanted air from entering into the system. With less to no air entering the system, cavitation or formation of bubbles in a liquid, which causes blade damage, is prevented. This elongates the life of the High Shear Mixer.
Reduced Waste and Sanitary
The High Shear Mixer’s is equipped with a Scraper made of a Teflon or a non-stick coating. This material is easy to clean, hard to be dissolved in all solvents and can withstand high temperatures. The Scraper gathers material wastes which can be collected without process interruption.
Ginhong manufactures a wide variety of mixers with a great range of viscosities and applications. Their extensive range of pumps and process systems are designed to withstand extremities when delivering efficient metering, processing and analyzing.
Almost all pharmaceutical manufacturing processes require preparations of suspensions and handling and processing cohesive powders. Sufficiently high metered shear is required to mill and de-lump materials, achieve sufficient flow, and homogenize cohesive ingredients which makes High Shear Mixers popular in the Pharmaceutical industries.

In cosmetic and personal care preparation and processing, challenges are encountered during the mixing process as it is difficult to attain the proper the proper amount of hydration of thickening and suspending agents, maintaining emulsion stability, process hygiene, disintegrating solids, blending liquids of different viscosities and mixing thickeners. It is also an imperative property that cosmetics attain the proper color, fragrance and other physical properties after being mixed.
