VACUCAM® Ejector Mixer
The Vacucam® Ejector Mixer is the most effective system available for conveying, wetting, and dispersing powders into liquids. Here is how it works.
Conditioned powder is conveyed into the mixer by a near-perfect vacuum, which is created when pressurized fluid is discharged as a high-velocity, hollow jet into which the powder is drawn.
The high speed dispersion mixer.
The Vacucam® system achieves high-speed, instantaneous and complete wetting by bringing together conditioned powder and highly atomized liquid from two separate streams, incorporating particles of liquid with particles of powder. The reactive surface areas of both the powder and the liquid are maximized before intimate contact is actually made. The result is consistently uniform, superior wetting without the agglomeration or “clumping” usually associated with conventional mixing methods.
Semi-Bulk Systems can design and integrate the Vacucam® in-line system to feed finished slurry into multiple locations of your preference, such as storage or mix tanks. Your entire process can be physically separated and centrally controlled. Semi-Bulk Systems provides options such as mounting the Ejector-Mixer on your tanks or integrating our system with your existing process.
The best fluid ejector upgrade with improved efficiency over the traditional fluid mixer.
Since the Vacucam® system achieves high-speed, instantaneous and complete mixing, it makes it perfect for fluid mixing too. You can bring together highly atomized liquids from two separate streams for batch to batch consistency and uniform mixing.

Other Dairy Applications
Processes cheese mixes can be addressed with Semi-Bulk System’s VACUCAM® EJM 2000 skidded unit as the heart of the liquid side process, accommodating processes for single pass or batch recycle processes.
Milk Powder Reconstitution
Milk Powder Reconstitution
The reconstitution of Milk Powders, including NFDM, whole milk, caseins, whey protein, lactose, or other powder products, is rapidly completed using the VACUCAM® EJM 2000 skidded unit.
The VACUCAM® Cultured Products Slurry Process is the most effective method for the complete dispersion of culture media, milk powders, whey proteins, gelatin, pectins, starch, and sugar.
The VACUCAM® Slurry Processes specifically address both dry ingredient handling and dry/liquid dispersion and functionalization benefits for a myriad of ingredients used in the production of frozen desserts.
