Homogenizing

 

Homogenization


The homogenizer is often necessary to mix one or more substances within a liquid. This device allows to micronice and scatter the particles subspended in the fluid, so that the product become highly stable, no matter the followings treatments and stockings the products may undergo.

The following picture summarizes the main phases. The product arrive to the homogenizing valve at a low speed and at high pressure (cause by the little gape between the passing head and collision head). During the passage the product is subjected to numerous forces which cause the particles micronization: a violent acceleration followed by an immediate deceleration that produce cavitation and then the globules explosion. Strong turbolence united to high frequency vibrations. Collision cutting strengths derived from the laminar passage between the homogenizing valve surfaces and the following impact with the collision ring.

Applications


DAIRY, FOOD AND ICE CREAM INDUSTRIES

Stability, uniformity, long life, digestibility, best appearance, clour and flavour improving. These are just some of the main advantages you can obtain by using tha homogenizer for treating common foodstuff. The results, in economic and qualitative terms, make the use of the new FBF ITALIA technology particularly convenient.

COSMETIC, CHEMICAL, PHARMACEUTICAL, AND PETROCHEMICAL INDUSTRIES
 
When used in the cosmetic industry, homogenization provides more stable, uniform emulsions with higher performance characteristics. In the pharmaceutical industry, the primarily mechanical nature of the homogenization process provides direct access to enzymes, proteins, liposomes and intracellular active substances without having to utilize chemical lysis of the membrane.
