What is a vacuum emulsifier?

September 19, 2013

Ever wondered exactly what is a vacuum emulsifier? What are its uses? What industries use this machine? Well this article will attempt to answer each of these questions in turn.

Let’s start off by breaking down the first question.

What is a vacuum?

Basically put, a vacuum (sometimes called ‘free space’) is a space that is totally empty of any matter. A more complex explanation would be an area with a gaseous pressure considerably smaller than atmospheric pressure.

Now you know that, onto the second part.

What is an emulsifier?

An emulsifier can relate to the material or substance that is added to concoctions to stabilise the mixture or it can refer to the process undertaken to combine two or more liquids that usually cannot form a solution – such as oil and water, usually the water would sink to the bottom of the container as the oil floats on the surface since it has a lower density. When using an emulsifier mixer this procedure of mixing oil and water becomes child’s play.

Now we have to look at the above and find out what they mean when they are inside the same mixer machine. A vacuum emulsifying mixer can be a component of a vacuum emulsifying machine or it can be a smaller capacity table top emulsifier, sometimes being referred to as a disperser.

Simply put, a vacuum emulsifier is a mixing machine that enables the user to mix various liquids together by the aid of a water circulation unit and a vacuum pump; they can come with different paddles such as a homo mixer and a paddle mixer. Small models may only process up to 2L but others may process 5L and beyond.

What are its uses?

These are many; it can be used to combine ingredients for mayo, mix solutions for medication, blend materials for cosmetics etc. The list is endless and the types of machines to cater to these needs are also numerous. Sometimes they can be used for producing just a portion of the end product or they can be utilised to produce the whole product – either in stages and then combined by this machine or in one full process.

What industries use these machines?

As shown above, many industries implement this type of mixing machine for its versatility, low energy consumption and great results. These include the health care industry, cosmetics, food, animal feed, pharmaceutical industry, laboratories etc.
