Types of Homogenizers
  A homogenizer is a piece of equipment that homogenizes various materials in a lab or industrial setting. Different physical technologies have been used to create different models of homogenizers. Let's look at a few types. One type is high-pressure homogenizers, while another type is used in laboratories.

high pressure homogenizer

  High pressure homogenizers are used for various applications, including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and food and dairy industries. These machines can be customized according to the product requirements and can also be used for conducting product trials in different pressures. The global high pressure homogenizer market is likely to grow in the coming years, with strong demand from these industries.

  High-pressure homogenization can target specific enzymes and compounds for extraction. This process is known as homogenizer-assisted extraction, and is a great way to improve the yields of high-value compounds. High pressure homogenizers produce uniform mixtures by evenly dispersing the components throughout the solution.

  High-pressure homogenizers are very versatile, and they are the oldest type of industrial homogenizers. Their design makes them ideal for a variety of different processes, from the food industry to the chemical industry. High-pressure homogenizers are also extremely efficient and versatile. Despite their simplicity, the high-pressure homogenizer does have some limitations.

  A high-pressure homogenizer works by taking a liquid sample and forcing a high-pressure plunger pump to force the mixture through a tiny variable orifice. As the fluid is accelerated, it creates high shear forces that disperse particles. This high-pressure mixing process is highly reliable and easy to use for processing large batches.

  High-pressure homogenization is also useful in inactivating microorganisms. The process depends on the species, model system, and process conditions. This technique also reduces the number of pathogens, increasing the safety and shelf-life of the food.

laboratory homogenizer

  A laboratory homogenizer is a common piece of laboratory and industrial equipment that is used for homogenization of a variety of materials. Various physical technologies are used to design different models of homogenizers. These machines are commonly used in the manufacture of a variety of different materials, including food, paint, plastic, rubber, and more.

  Laboratory homogenizers can handle volumes from 0.05 to 2500 ml. They come with an electronic control system that monitors the flow rate and automatically changes it according to the viscosity of the sample. This information can be displayed on the large digital display. You can also choose from a variety of aggregates to achieve optimal particle size reduction. Single-use synthetic aggregates are available in a diameter of 7 and 12 mm.

  The laboratory homogenizer is easy to operate. Its plug and play structure makes it an excellent choice for small batch or laboratory applications. Its three-piston design ensures uniform flow and homogenization. It also has a camshaft transmission system for trouble-free operation. Its liquid end is fully washable, and it comes in two models: a continuous and an intermittent homogenizer.

  Thermo Scientific Homogenizer Laboratory Blender is designed for maximum productivity. It is compatible with the Diluflux Automated Gravimetric Dilutor and Peristaltic Pump. Thermo Scientific also sells a variety of laboratory equipment, including the Oxoid and Remel brands. These brands offer comprehensive diagnostic products, manual test products, and media.

homogenizer pump

  A homogenizer pump is a component of high-pressure homogenizer systems. It works by delivering fluid through a pump block containing multiple pistons. These pumps are manufactured from highly durable materials and are usually fitted with double piston-seals. The pump block is normally supplied with water in the space between the piston-seals in order to lubricate them. However, there are instances in which steam or hot condensate is also supplied to prevent reinfection in aseptic processes.

  Homogenizer pumps have a variety of uses and can be used to treat common food materials. They are generally made from special investment casting to ensure precision and non-porous surfaces. They also feature open-type impellers to ensure a smooth flow path. They are also maintenance free and do not suffer from blockages. The design of homogenizer pumps is based on system engineering operations. A rotor is mounted on a steel housing and is connected to a central shaft.

  Homogenizer pumps typically have two types of valves. The first type is an annular-type valve, and the second type is a spool-style valve. Both types of valves have a suction and discharge manifold, and they each communicate with the other through the cross-bores.

  A high-pressure homogenizer pump is a pump with a built-in homogenizer. The pressure required to homogenize a product is usually between 8,000 and 40,000 psi.
