Improve Pharmaceutical Emulsification And Homogenization With An Ultra-High Shear MixerSource: Charles Ross and Son Company
Consider upgrading your emulsification and homogenization processes to an ultra-high shear mixer to obtain finer droplet sizes and handle higher viscosity emulsions.
Throughout the food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries, rotor/stator mixers are commonly used for the preparation of emulsions – from flavorings and colorants to creams, ointments and gels. Available in batch or inline configurations, rotor/stator devices, also called high shear mixers, are typically comprised of a four-blade rotor that turns at high speeds within a stationary stator. As the blades rotate, materials are continuously drawn into one end of the mixing head and expelled at high velocity through the openings of the stator. The resulting hydraulic shear promotes fast mixing, disintegrates solid agglomerates and reduces the size of droplets in emulsions.
