    Can single-stage rotor/stator mixers produce fine dispersions and emulsions with submicron particles or droplets?

    Yes, standard high shear mixers are capable of producing submicron droplets or particles. But in large part, this is also highly dependent on the formulation itself. Apart from mixing intensity, several other factors affect particle or droplet size reduction including inherent properties of the raw materials, their interaction or chemistry, presence and type of surfactant, operating temperature, shear-sensitivity, etc. For this reason, particle size distribution can only be accurately determined through mixer trials wherein the actual raw materials are used and real process line conditions are simulated as closely as possible. In certain cases, even the same raw material sourced from a different supplier can yield significantly different results.
