How to Assemble Dispersion Blades
INDCO presents a video guide to dispersion blade assembly. We focus on four types of assemblies in the demonstration. The TS-Series shaft for lab stirrers or drills, DS-series shafts for any 1/2" chuck, HS-series adapters and finally bolt-on and weld-on hubs. We have 5 styles of dispersion blades to fit your mixing needs.
The Design A blade, our most popular, is widely used as a standard in dispersions including paints, dye pigments and many more applications. It consists of alternating teeth bent at ninety degrees to provide the high shear required of dispersion applications.
The Design B is also a popular all-around dispersion blade option. Its teeth are more rectangular in shape than those of the A blade.
The Design C features teeth shaped similarly to the A but with much greater height. The additional tooth height increases the pumping action of the blade while still providing high shear.
Our Design D blade features the most unique tooth profiles. This blade has teeth similar to the B blade alternately spaced with specially shaped teeth for the most pumping from a dispersion blade. This is the most aggressive blade option for completing dispersion processes in higher viscosity materials with a single blade setup.
Another specialty blade, the Design E blade, is used for cutting or shredding solids suspended in liquid materials. Rubber and waxes are examples of solids that may be broken down using the knife edge design of the E Blade.
All of our dispersion blades are provided in 304 stainless steel and are made in the U.S.A. Many blades can ship on the day of order with only a short lead time for others. Available value-added features include tungsten-carbide coating and mounting hubs attached to the blade via welding or bolting.
