Pharmaceutical Homogenizer

The homogenizer is working as a particles size reducer for particles in suspension in a liquid and to calibrate their size at a defined value.

Due to the speed increase (A) in the turbulent pipe (1), the premixed product, reaches the homogenizing section  (B) and then is transferred through the particle size reducer (2) Due to the high speed, the turbulence is created in relation to the gap in the reduction zone (4). Finally the product is projected with a high velocity on the impact plate generating a shock.
