The LABOR PILOT is a compact and multipurpose inline laboratory dispersing machine. It is designed for solid-liquid mixing, homogenizing, emulsifying, suspending and wet milling. The LABOR-PILOT 2000/4 is suitable for wide range of applications, particularly in the chemical, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, plastics, colors and food industries. It is uniquely designed with the advance technology and is available with six interchangeable modules. It can be customized to fit particular procedural demands. Important process parameters such as circumferential speed, tools and mixing chamber geometry are structurally identical to those of the IKA 2000 inline production machines: UTL, DR, DRS, MHD, MK and MKO. Therefore, the LABOR-PILOT ensures a reliable scale-up by offering the possibility to work with the same method from formulation development to mass production.
The basic inline machine is equipped with the single-stage dispersing module ULTRA-TURRAX® UTL. It is best suited for batch applications and can be adapted for the manufacturing of dispersions from coarse to fine. Compared to a conventional stirrer, the mixing time is reduced by up to 50%.
Depending on the application, the basic unit can be modified quickly with different working modules. The LABOR-PILOT 2000/4 differs from the alternative PROCESS-PILOT 2000/4 machine due to the applied seal technology and two additional process modules for powder entry in recirculation mode.
