When you’re getting ready to mix up some mortar, or any other construction material, you want to ensure you have the right equipment. There are two basic mortar mixers: high speed and low speed. So what is the difference between a dry mortar mixer and a high-speed disperser?

First of all, let’s talk about the mixing speed.

The dry mortar mixer is low-speed mixing equipment. Generally, the mixing speed will not exceed 60 rpm. However, high speed dispersers are high-speed mixers, and the mixing speed reaches more than 100 rpm.

The working principle of dry mortar mixer and high speed disperser.

The dry mortar mixer uses a horizontal cylindrical design and multi-layer spiral belt mixing form; the commonly used unit adopts double-shaft paddle-type mixing; according to different mixing materials, flying knife groups are also added; The high-speed disperser uses serrated circular dispersing discs to disperse at high speed in the container to complete solid-liquid dispersion, wetting, depolymerization and stabilization processes.

Finally, Application of dry mortar mixer & high-speed disperser.

The high-speed disperser machine and dry mortar mixer are very similar in their functions but have different applications.

The high-speed disperser is used for mixing and stirring liquid or liquid-powder phase materials in coatings, dyes, inks, pigments, cosmetics, resins and adhesives. The speed can be adjusted arbitrarily. It can mix and stir viscous materials with excessive water content. The speed is generally higher than that of the dry mortar mixer.

The mortar mixer is mainly for dry powder mixings, such as putty powder mortar, tile adhesive mortar, dry powder coating and thermal insulation. It can also add water appropriately to stir paste-like objects but cannot stir viscous materials with excessive water content.

In conclusion

The high-speed dispersing machine is probably the right option if you’re looking for a mixer that can stir viscous materials with excessive water content.

But if you need to mix dry powder materials such as putty powder or dry mortar, the dry mortar mixer is probably better suited to your needs.

These mixers have their purposes and markets, so they don’t compete with each other. They can coexist independently of one another.
