IKA® dispersing technology works by using the rotor-stator principle. The system consists of a rotor within a stationary stator. Due to the high circumferential speed, the medium to be processed is drawn axially into the dispersion head and then forced radially through the slots in the rotor-stator arrangement. The high speed and minimal gap between the rotor and stator produces extremely strong shear forces which results in better dispersion.
A wide variety of rotor-stator configurations and seals are required to process different mediums. In order to make the device adaptable to the user‘s specific needs, it is sometimes necessary to use two dispersing tools to achieve from coarse to fine particle size reduction. The quick-connect coupling facilitates the exchange of dispersing tools
