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 process that rapidly homogenizes the product to the required uniformity.
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.
