    I couldn't see the vortex as you described them...
    my screen is set dark for night viewing.

    Maybe another look tomorrow morning....

    One word did throw me...
    Random... in "2 random cylinders"

    What is random about the cylinders?

    Did you mean "Rambo" ?



    (hint for Rambo: cf. Japanese meaning and movie usage)

    The explanation is shown graphically on another reference in the shrouded turbine thread, but basically the PEPA throws out a thin plane of mixed materials from above and below by centrifugal force. The ejected fluid, when it hits the edge of the beaker at a perpendicular can go up or down and then, reaching the top or bottom it curls around forming two cylindrical mix patters of random fully mixed materials. In doing so, it works in a much smoother method with higher energy transfer and at higher speeds for faster maxing.

    According to my translation, you mean "ranbo" or violence!

    Faster Maxing?
    Isn't that proprietary T-max technology ?

    Yes. Thanks for that good description of the PEPA mixer.
    I am sure the pictures will look the way they are supposed to now.
    They say a picture's worth a thousand words, but sometimes a few words go a long way to clarify pictures too. Thanks.

    This was described by Herb Wilgus in a paper in an engineering jorunal in the 70s. I am not a member, and so I cannot read the journal but this was also described in other articles and patents. There are 3 version in use at EK AFAIK. It is virtually essential that high speed mixing take place in order to make any modern emulsion, but it is not essential to making a T-Grain emulsion.
