» Process » Homogenize

If something is homogenized, it is changed so that all its parts are similar or the same, especially in a way that is undesirable.

Homogenize generally happens at the same time with emulsify and disperse when cream and milk are mixed, dispersed, emulsified and homogenized.

Homogenize has two functions as to reduce the products (generally emulsions and suspensions) to small particles of uniform size. And the second function is to make the small particles distribute evenly in the liquids.

Homogenization requires the ingredients to be processed until of a uniform globule or particle size. For most products, including creams, ointments, sauces, flavoring emulsions and pharmaceutical suspensions, this requires a globule or droplet size in the range of 2~5 microns.

This can be achieved using a Ginhong high shear homogenizer. The precision machined work head generates exceptionally high shear rates in a mixing/homogenizing process. The high speed rotor draws materials into the work head where they are intensely mixed. Centrifugal force then drives the materials to the periphery of the work head and subjects them to mechanical shear in the precision gap between the rotor and stator. This is followed by intense hydraulic shear, as the product is forced through the stator screen at high velocity and circulated back into the mix. Fresh material is continually drawn into the work head, progressively reducing globule or particle size and quickly resulting in a homogeneous, uniform product.
