Industry’s Filtration Partner

Durable, versatile, effective mixing machines that combine grinding, dispersing, shearing and emulsifying with pumping capabilities.

Whether you’re working in the laboratory, prototyping a new process, or looking for an in-line grinder that can swallow tanker trucks full of abrasive slurry -- ARDE Barinco can meet your needs.

Arde Barinco Dicon in-line wet grinders, with three decades of proven performance in high-volume production applications around the world, provide solutions to a wide range of mixing, grinding and production problems.

  • Dispersing Grinders from 2” to 10”.
  • From 1 to 1000 gpm (0.1 to 240 m3/hour).
  • Abrasion-Resistant Materials Available.

MESHED TEETH TAKE A BITE OUT OF THE TOUGHEST MIXING TASKS

The Dicon grinding action repeatedly accelerates and decelerates the materials, forcing them to undergo numerous changes in direction.

The materials are crushed and subjected to eddy currents in a very high turbulence zone between the two sets of intermeshing teeth. The grinding action is continuously repeated as the materials move toward the discharge port.

A patented impeller with three helical blades rotates at highspeed inside a matching, tubular housing. The rotating impeller creates a negative pressure differential, centrifugal-shoveling and positive axial thrust - - drawing materials into intensive shear zones.

The centrifugal force abruptly changes the direction of the materials and drives them against the inner surface of the toothed cylindrical liner. Sharply angled teeth on the edges of the impeller blades shear the materials and force them through a tortuous path.

The materials are crushed and subjected to eddy currents in a very high turbulence zone between the two sets of intermeshing teeth. The grinding action is continuously repeated as the materials move toward the discharge port.

An optional discharge grid plate with a precisely positioned series of venturi-type orifices (from 1/32" to 3/4" I.D.), provides positive particle size control. Materials must exit through one of the small precision ports. The partially-restricted discharge area provides reproducable control of both retention time and dispersion.

INSIDE THE DICON IN-LINE DISPERSING GRINDER

HIGH-VOLUME PRODUCTION

Dicon in-line grinders shred solid surfaces, grind particles, smash agglomerates, and reduce dissolving or dispersing time. The unique, high-shear design insures fast mixing and complete solid-to-liquid contact. You get faster batch turnover and improved production flow.

LOW ENERGY CONSUMPTION

The Dicon in-line grinder subjects a small volume of material to intense shear, using energy more efficiently than mixing equipment that swirls large volumes of liquids. The powerful pumping action usually eliminates the need for transfer pumps. You save on energy costs.

VERSATILITY

Easy to change impellers, liners and discharge gates allow one ARDE Dicon in-line grinder to disperse, grind, emulsify, shear, mix or blend up to 70% solids or liquids with viscosities as high as 250,000 centipoise. Designed for use in-line or recirculating to process vessels. You get a durable, versatile in-line grinder and pump with hundreds of potential applications.

TOUGH, DURABLE & EASY TO MAINTAIN

Aerospace-quality engineering and precision manufacturing using the finest materials assure trouble-free start-up and long life. The standard cantilevered impeller requires no lubrication. Loss of fluid won't damage the dependable Dicon or heavy-duty Megagrinder. Specially hardened, abrasion-resistant models with heavy-duty bearings and seals are available for extra-tough applications. The simplicity of the design assures easy inspection and maintenance. You get reliability.

COST EFFECTIVE

The Dicon in-line grinder's ability to grind and pump fluids with a wide range of viscosities, high-solid slurries and other hard to handle liquids may allow you to replace two pieces of equipment with one. In conjunction with metered feed streams, you may even be able to replace mixing vessels, agitators and transfer pumps.

You get savings in capital equipment costs, installation charges, space requirements, maintenance and energy consumption.

POSITIVE PARTICLE SIZE CONTROL

The precisely machined orifices of the discharge plate grid assure particle size conrol and prevent nozzle clogging - - even in single-pass processes. Your process is protected from down-time.
