Title (EN) HOLLOW MICROSPHERE PARTICLE GENERATOR
(FR) GÉNÉRATEUR DE PARTICULES MICROSPHÉRIQUES CREUSES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A hollow microsphere particle generator comprising at least one inlet for receiving at least one shell fluid; an inlet for receiving a core fluid, an inlet for receiving a sheath fluid; a fluid outlet, from which the at least one shell fluid and the core fluid exit in a continuous stream arranged such that the core fluid coaxially covered by the at least one shell fluid to form a continuous casting stream; and a discretizer capable of discretizing the continuous casting stream into discrete units to form the hollow spherical particles. The at least one shell fluid and the core fluid form the continuous coaxial casting fluid stream that exits at the fluid outlet. The casting fluid stream is discretized upon exiting the outlet, and dispensed into a sheathing fluid stream formed from the sheathing fluid such that exposure to air is prevented.
(FR)Le générateur de particules microsphériques creuses selon l'invention comprend une ou plusieurs entrées destinées à recevoir au moins un fluide enveloppant ; une entrée destinée à recevoir un fluide central, une entrée destinée à recevoir un fluide gainant ; une sortie de fluide, de laquelle le ou les fluides enveloppants ainsi que le fluide central sortent en un jet continu, le fluide central étant recouvert de manière coaxiale par le ou les fluides enveloppants pour former un jet de coulée continu ; et un dispositif de discrétisation capable de discrétiser le jet de coulée continu pour obtenir des unités distinctes et former les particules sphériques creuses. Le ou les fluides enveloppants ainsi que le fluide central constituent le jet de coulée coaxial et continu qui s'échappe de la sortie de fluide. Le jet de fluide de coulée est discrétisé à la sortie, et combiné à un jet de fluide gainant créé à partir du fluide gainant afin qu'il ne soit pas exposé à l'air.
