Silverson Mixer Homogenizers

Silverson Mixer Homogenizers

Silverson Mixer Homogenizers are fast and efficient and are capable of producing a fine droplet or particle size, typically in the range of 2 – 5 microns. This degree of homogenization is suitable for the vast majority of products, such as creams and ointments, lotions, sauces and flavor emulsions.

Silverson offers a range of in-tank and In-Line mixer homogenizers for these applications. The precision-machined Silverson workhead generates exceptionally high shear rates in a three‑stage homogenization process that rapidly achieves the required uniformity of the product.

Advantages of High Shear Homogenizers Over High‑Pressure Alternatives

  • Significantly less capital expenditure required
  • More energy efficient
  • Higher throughput
  • Simple to operate, maintain and clean

Enhance High-Pressure Homogenization Throughput

For the few applications that demand submicron particle or globule sizes, a high-pressure homogenizer may be required. Where this is the case, passing the product through a high shear Silverson Mixer Homogenizer first will dramatically improve throughput, process efficiency and reduce operating costs. This is because a high-pressure homogenizer works better when fed with a premix of uniform and fine globule or particle size, allowing the product to pass through the homogenizer at a much faster rate, normally in a single pass.


How It Works

Silverson Mixer Homogenizers offer many advantages to the processor - speed, versatility, self-pumping, aeration-free, and guaranteed efficiency. At the heart of every mixer is Silverson’s high-performance rotor/stator workhead.

Stage 1

The high-speed rotation of the rotor blades within the precision-machined mixing workhead exerts a powerful suction, drawing liquid and solid materials into the rotor/stator assembly.

Stage 2

Centrifugal force then drives the materials towards the periphery of the workhead where they are subjected to a milling action in the precision-machined clearance between the ends of the rotor blades and the inner wall of the stator.

Stage 3

This is followed by intense hydraulic shear as the materials are forced, at high velocity, out through the perforations in the stator, then through the machine outlet and along the pipework. At the same time, fresh materials are continually drawn into the workhead, maintaining the mixing and pumping cycle.
