Netzsch introduces Omega for energy saving dispersing

August 20, 2012

Netzsch Grinding and Dispersing business unit recently unveiled its newest machine—the Omega Economic Dispersionizer—at the 2012 Achema Exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany.

In several sectors of the industry, successful dispersing, which is the targeted separation of
agglomerated particles, is still presenting a challenge, which is why Netzsch designed the new Omega Economic Dispersionizer. According to the company, Omega achieves extraordinary energy efficiency through utilization of turbulence, cavitation and shear forces, thus providing real energy and time saving potential. In comparison to technologies currently in operation, the Omega dispersing unit is one of the most cost effective on the market.

The Omega delivers technical benefits including efficient dispersion, small particle sizes,
significantly reduced heat, reproducibility and easy cleaning/product changing the company said.

Applications for Omega include printing inks, paints, pigment dispersions; cosmetic and skin
care products, ointments, creams; cell disruption; food and beverages, peanut butter, baby food,
juices and egg products; milk products, sour cream, yogurt, condensed milk; carbon nano tubes;
and pharmaceutical products.

The Omega is currently available for product trials at the Netzsch Feinmahltechnik test
center in Selb, Germany, and will soon be available in Exton, Pa., U.S.
