Video – The Assembly and Disassembly of the DK 30

In these videos, our expert demonstrates the steps involved in properly assembling — and then disassembling — the DK30 Flow-Through-Chamber with the new G30 shaft. Watch for helpful tips, such as applying a thin layer of food-grade silicone grease to the unit’s two O-rings, so they seat snugly.     View the proper sequence of…

Be Prepared: Use the Right Tools to Infuse Cannabis Extracts into Products

Preparing CBD extracted from hemp, and other cannabis-related products, typically involves infusing an extract featuring active compounds into a carrier liquid. In the case of popular CBD tinctures, the carrier is often an edible oil, such as olive oil. Like any food-grade oil, olive oil is considerably more viscous than water. Unlike some edible oils,…

Our Homogenizer Tools are Interchangeable to Meet Changing Needs

The elegance of CAT Scientific’s laboratory homogenizers derives from their flexibility and supreme utility. No two particle size reduction tasks are exactly the same. Nor do all mixing tasks feature the same challenges. The liquid medium, for instance, often ranges from a simple aqueous solution to a thick, viscous medium, such as an oil or…

How to Disassemble, Clean, and Reassemble the G40 Rotor-Stator Shaft

In this video, we demonstrate the precise steps you’ll need to take after every use of your G40 rotor/stator shaft assembly. Cleaning immediately after every use is crucial to prevent potential cross contamination of subsequent samples or procedures. Given the exceptionally fine stator slots and rotor geometries, fine particles can become lodged in these precision devices.…

The Importance of Uniform Cannabinoid Distribution in CBD Products

The manufacture and sale of products featuring cannabidiol (CBD) has exploded in recent years. The wildly popular non-psychoactive compound, derived from hemp, is highly popular with eager consumers. However, there’s a potential proverbial fly in the ointment. CBD products are presently unregulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). And independent analyses have shown…

X1740 High Power Homogenizer Drive

The 1,700-watt X1740 High Power Homogenizer Drive is our highest power homogenizer. Capable of handling liquid volumes ranging from 0.5 L up to 20 L, the X1740 may offer impressive homogenizing power, but it still works with all of our accessory shafts, from the relatively small T20 dispensing shaft, to the high capacity G40. Available separately,…

X1000 Homogenizer with DK30 Flow-Through-Chamber Attachment

Many simple laboratory mixing tasks in are accomplished using laboratory magnetic hotplate stirrers. These simple devices allow users to drop a teflon-coated stir bar into a given liquid, turn on the hotplate stirrer, adjust revolution speed, and achieve thorough mixing. Obviously, the hotplate component of the system allows for gentle, precisely controlled heating of the…

Basic Mixology: Magnetic Hotplate Stirrers to Sophisticated Homogenizers

From the ancient alchemists to modern biotechnology labs, stirring has always been a fundamental activity in any laboratory. The pursuit of desirable chemical reactions and properly blended reagents often requires significant stirring. It’s the only way to blend diverse components. A simple magnetic hotplate stirrer may suffice for many purposes in the lab; to mix…

Dispersion in the Lab: Sometimes an Overhead Stirrer is All You Really Need

A lab mixer can consist of something as simple as a magnetic stir bar at the bottom of a beaker sitting on a stir plate. This simple stirring option is often adequate to achieve ordinary laboratory mixing tasks. But other mixing tasks may require more sophisticated blending/homogenizing technology. These more challenging tasks — perhaps involving…
