Homogenization Test Laboratory Evaluates In-Line Process Feasibility

March 31, 2010

The Homogenization Test Laboratory was developed for manufacturers of dispersions, emulsions, and slurries that require complete consistency and repeatability. Utilizing a dynamic in-line mixer or high shear colloid mill featuring patented rotor-stator mixing technology that exposes 100-percent of the customer’s product to the same shear action, with no bypass, the laboratory test results are fully-scalable to production volumes by the company. Providing a comprehensive test report which includes application objectives, testing procedures, and processed sample results, the laboratory will allow the firm to specify an in-line wet mixing system or colloid mill that is best-suited to a specific customer’s production processing requirements up to 10,000 GPH throughput. Systems comply with 3A, USDA, and FDA standards.
