T 18 digital ULTRA-TURRAX® Disperser
by IKA

Digital speed display and rotating knob for speed adjustment
Suitable for standardized applications, T 18 digital features a digital speed display that allows users to monitor set and actual speeds during sample processing. The close proximity of the rotor and stator provides excellent dispersion of samples with varied miscibility. Able to homogenize, emulsify or suspend samples at high circumferential speeds even with small rotor diameters, the T 18 has the power and versatility to accomplish a variety of formulation development applications. Stainless steel and disposable plastic dispersion elements are available.
  • Volume range: 1 to 1500 ml
  • Speed range: 3000 - 25000 rpm
  • Digital speed display ensures accurate protocol adherence
  • Electronic overload protection helps protect motor from damage
  • Digital error code display for easy troubleshooting
  • Rotating knob for speed adjustment
  • Enables high circumferential speeds
  • Emulsifies, homogenizes, or suspends virtually any sample
  • Electronic speed control
  • Scalable unit allows usage of identical processes from formulation to production
  • Handheld or Plate stand mounted operation
  • Two-year manufacturer warranty, plus additional one-year warranty after registration

Rotor-Stator Principle
The rotor-stator principle of the IKA T 18 Digital provides better dispersion of materials. The design consists of placing a rotor within a stationary stator in very close proximity. The minimal gap between the rotor and stator produces an extremely strong shear force that expels the medium being processed through the slots of the rotor-stator.
