CAVITRON® machines are also referred to as sprocket dispersing machines. They are used in the chemical industry, petrochemical, food industry, and paint industry. Paint production used for the processing of liquid dispersions and solid dispersions. In the chemical industry, the machines are used successfully as continuous reactors due to the extremely increased mass transfer. This is based on an enormous increase in the phase interface, the highly turbulent shear field and the high specific energy input in the machines.

The outstanding mixing principle of the CAVITRON® machines is based on the rotor / stator system of the mixing tools. The rotor / stator system generates due to the high circumferential speeds and the interaction of coaxial rotors and stators extremely high shear gradients and high-frequency pressure changes in the product. These lead to the outstanding dispersing and emulsifying performance of CAVITRON® machines. Our intensive nozzle tools with 0.5mm diameter and chamber tools with 0.3mm slit widths are unsurpassed and produce the finest emulsions and suspensions.

There are three different types of mixing tools for different applications.

CAVITRON® – nozzle system

Inline centrifugal reactor with the smallest radial bores for the finest dispersions by means of the highest shear rate




CAVITRON® – chamber system

Inline mixer with high dispersion rate and intensive mixing effect




CAVITRON® – cone system
Wet mill for disintegration and dissolution processes

The CAVITRON® dispersing machines are produced in different dimensions. As a result, both laboratory applications and machines for industrial production are covered. The throughput capacity ranges from 0.005 m³ / h up to 200 m³ / h.
