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.
The homogenizing phase can be carried out using a single homogenizing valve (suitable for scatter tratment), or a double homogenizing valve (suggested when you have to use emulsions and for controlling viscosity whenever requested.) All homogenizing valves models are equipped with specific oleopneumatic unit, to assure a simple and accurate functioning.
