Abstract

Described herein is a method and a system for dispersing particles in a fluid. The method includes stirring a fluid including particles in a stirring container using stirring means. During stirring the fluid is recirculated by continuously retrieving an amount of fluid from a retrieving position. Further, the particles are milled, where during each pass through the milling means a size of particles in the retrieved fluid is reduced. The retrieved fluid having passed through the milling means is continuously reintroduced into the stirring container at a reintroduction position. The reintroduced fluid is mixed with the fluid in the stirring container in a mixing region defined by the stirring means, and the retrieving position is determined such that the retrieved fluid includes particles with an average particle size differing from the average particle size of particles in the mixing region.
