Lab mixer homogenizer – features and applications

lab mixer homogenizer

A lab mixer homogenizer is a small machine found in research facilities and laboratories. Unlike other common mixers, this unique machine doesn’t just mix materials. Instead, it performs a variety of mixing processes such as emulsification and homogenization. It is efficient in suspending, dispersing, and disintegrating different types of solids. Each and every mixer homogenizer, with built-in and highly precise rotor and stator work heads, is able to outperform and outlast traditional mixers. Overall, the use of such tool improves the consistency and overall quality of the product. Likewise, the operator is able to undergo mixing and homogenizing processes efficiently, and at the quickest time possible.

How does a lab mixer homogenizer work?

Mechanical lab homogenizers are known to be efficient in breaking down samples into minute-sized particles. This is very true, especially if the process is done continuously at high speed, and for a long period of time. Breaking down of materials into any size or form is actually possible with the use of this tool.  Operator can also work in obtaining a much larger size of materials; which can be achieved by mixing samples gently and processing them at low speed for a short period of time.

Generally, the processes are dependent on the action of the blade assembly. The linear velocity, which is created at the high shear homogenization emulsifier’s rotor, and kinetic energy, which is generated by the mechanical effect, work harmoniously to place the materials under a series of actions and processes. These include forceful shear, hydraulic friction, centrifugal extrusion, and crash that’s created between the space of the rotor and stator blade assembly.

All the necessary mixing and blending processes are done on the materials, whether solid, liquid, or gas phase. Such actions continuously happen until such time that the desired state of the material has been achieved. In the end, such materials which are insoluble at the start will be dispersed evenly all through the mixture. The materials will be emulsified as they undergo all the necessary processing after a specific period. Finally, a stable material of superb consistency and overall quality is achieved over time.

Main features and characteristics of laboratory mixer homogenizer

  1. A highly vital component of a lab mixer homogenizer is the durable torque motor, which is used with high viscous ingredients and mixes.
  1. The machine possesses a number of work heads to meet various processing capacities as well as different products.
  1. A laboratory mixer homogenizer tool possesses a very wide range of speed capabilities. This allows it to satisfy the tough requirements and actions on experiments, especially those that involve emulsifying, dispersing, and homogenizing processes.
  1. Like any heavy duty machine, it boasts of a tough and durable motor, allowing it to perform continuously for many hours.
  1. It possesses simple and safe to handle parts and components that make it easy and convenient to clean and sanitize.
  1. A highly desirable quality of lab mixer homogenizer is that it hardly creates any noise, not like in the case of other ordinary homogenizers.
