Introduction to Low Shear technology

Shear forces are acting on the fluids during the flow. Basic principles outline the concept of shear in fluids. Selected articles describe different flow regimes, as well as different types of fluids and the behavior changes of these fluids during flow.

Shear forces may have various effects on the fluids. For some flow conditions, high shear is not desirable, for others it is. Several cases present the processes where low shear processing is beneficial.
