Whole Length Sepa Apex Mill/WAM

The WAM performs dispersion with high uniformity in particle size distribution in a short time.

Overview

The WAM is a bead mill that allows one to use the smallest class microbeads from 0.015 mm. This machine is equipped with a centrifugal bead separator and realizes stable processing without clogging at the slurry discharge port. The WAM has a large-sized centrifugal bead separator that enables uniform dispersion and large flow rate processing. In addition, four types of bead mills equipped with a centrifugal bead separator are available in our product lineup.
The WAM is a bead mill in which the whole rotor part consists of a Centri-separator. This enables high flow velocity operation, even with microbeads. Because this machine enables one to process at a high flow rate, it is possible to increase the number of slurry processing passes and perform uniform dispersion processing. The WAM is suitable for sharp particle size distribution and low damage dispersion.

Characteristics

1. The WAM performs dispersion with high uniformity in particle size distribution in a short time.
(1) Regarding bead diameter, the condition is the same as that for the UAM (Ultra Apex Mill). However, because the stirring structure is different from that of the UAM, it can be suppressed such that the dispersion force is locally excessive and the dispersion energy is uniform. Consequently, it is possible to reduce particle damage and realize processing with sharp particle size distribution. The WAM is particularly suitable for dispersion of soft particles such as organic pigments.
(2) By increasing the bead separation area, the slurry can be processed at a high flow rate that is three times that of the UAM. It is possible to increase the number of slurry processing passes and perform dispersion with a high uniformity of particle size distribution in a short time.
2. By increasing the bead separation area, it is possible to disperse even highly viscous slurry.
*The other characteristics are the same as those of the UAM (Ultra Apex Mill).
