Product name: Drais DDA Direct Dispersion System
Attributes/comments: The DDA is an extremely efficient pre-dispersion device, which eliminates the need for a conventional pre-mix tank, disperser and pump. The DDA directly feeds the grinding mill with feed which is more homogenous than it would be if made in batch tanks with a disperser. This lends itself to greater consistency. Solids and liquids meet at exact ratios and immediately put under high shear. Special design Drais feed inlet prevents bringing of solids for smooth, reliable operation.
