Successful dispersion requires targeted force in order to separate agglomerated particles. The Omega® Economic Disperser applies dispersive forces then and there, where they are especially effective: in the Omega® disperser body, energy is transformed into very high speeds under pressure. Turbulence and cavitation in perfect combination with specifically-applied shearing forces ensure maximum dispersion results. In addition, the system can be easily adapted to different operating conditions or formulations thanks to the Omega® disperser body, which consists of a nozzle with infinitely adjustable flow properties.
The optimum adaptation and increased efficiency not only lead to reduced energy consumption in the production process and thereby less heat development, but also to less wear as compared to traditional technologies.

In 2011, NETZSCH-Feinmahltechnik GmbH began technical development and engineering of the Omega® Economic Dispersionizer for deagglomeration, disaggregation and delamination of primary particles, as well as emulsification. In April 2013, NETZSCH Premier Technologies, LLC introduced the Omega® to the North American market. The unit was designed for a dispersion process between typical high-speed dissolvers, in-line mixers and media mills...
Grinding or dispersing processes are used in the manufacture of many different products. For some applications, where the goal is to achieve deagglomeration, disaggregation or delamination, manufacturing technologies are often applied for which optimisation is both desired and necessary. A new production technology enables optimisation for such applications in terms of power requirements, output and service life of the production machinery, as well as ease of cleaning and operation.
