Homogenizer for homogenization of immiscible fluids.
The HMG Homogenizer is used for homogenization of immiscible fluids such as typical oil-in-water or water-in-oil emulsions. A special care has to be given to avoid dry running of this instrument.
HMG attached directly to UAM
The function of the HMG Homogenizer is based on the turbulent flow via a piston pump through a channel with predefined structure. This arrangement generates a static mixing effect, which allows the homogenization of immiscible liquids.
Different modes available
The HMG Homogenizer can be operated in two modes:
» Small Batch Mode: Through manual filling of the hopper. Once a batch is finished it can be emptied from the outlet nozzle.
» Semi-Continuous: For bigger batches. The HMG Homogenizer can be externally connected to a bigger vessel. This option requires the feed to be pre-mixed and preheated in order to get high yield.
For heating, an electric heater with a thermostat is integrated in this instrument. The HMG Homogenizer can be attached directly to the UAM Universal Motor Drive, which affords a smooth and stepless speed tuning. All contact parts are made of GMP Compliant materials and can be sterilized in accordance with GMP
