An Introduction to Modular Laboratory Homogenizer Systems

Homogenizers as the name suggests perform a homogenizing function. A common example is homogenized milk, a function performed to avoid separation of cream from milk.  This is done with production-line homogenizers.  In R&D labs and for initial pilot plant operations lab homogenizers are put into play.  This post introduces you to modular laboratory homogenizer systems…

The CAT X1740 / DK40 Inline Benchtop Homogenizer

A compact, quietly operating benchtop in-line homogenizer capable of processing cannabis tinctures, beverages, syrups, and other solutions up to 83 liters/min (22 gallons/minute) is demonstrated in a new video produced by CAT Scientific. This homogenizer ensures cannabinoid and terpene uniformity. The average cannabinoid potency deviation is 1% – 1.5%.  This is achieved by controlling the…

X1000 Homogenizer with DK30 Flow-Through-Chamber Attachment

How to Turn a Lab Homogenizer into an Inline Device Laboratory homogenizers represent a significant investment for research organizations engaged in developing new processing procedures across a broad range of industries.   Integrating or adding a flow through chamber to the homogenizer mixer greatly increases its functionality by enabling inline processing or extending the exposure of…

How to Create Stable Cosmetic Emulsions With a Lab Homogenizer

Researchers developing new cosmetic formulations for consumer markets often work with immiscible ingredients resisting transformation to stable emulsions important to lotions, crèmes and similar products designed to be absorbed by the skin.   We emphasize stable emulsions because cosmetics that separate in the jar are a sure sign of product failure.  This post describes how researchers can create stable…

How to Select a Laboratory Homogenizer

Scientists in research laboratories and pilot plants are often challenged to find ways of processing small or limited-sized samples in the quest to develop then refine procedures leading to production-scale operations.  Several tools are available to help in this quest, one of which is called the laboratory homogenizer.  This post explains how to select a…

CBD Distillate Infusions: Why a Homogenizer is Your Best Friend

A wide range of products can be made with CBD distillate; vape cartridges, MCT oil tinctures, lotions, gummies, beverages, etc. Raw CBD distillates can be surprisingly challenging to work with, as they tend to be highly viscous, especially at ambient temperatures. Blending distillate into carrier oils for edibles can be tricky. Most manufactures commonly use…

Choose The Right Homogenizer When Emulsifying Distillate and Terpenes

Raw CBD distillate is extremely viscous and is challenging to work with at ambient temperatures, typically rock hard. Distillates must be heated to about 65° C (149° F) or more to facilitate transference to vape cartridges or other media. Even then, this substance is highly viscous. During the distillation process the terpenes are vaporized off…

Cannabis Infusions: Homogenizer vs. Overhead Stirrer

Products featuring cannabis infusions should be manufactured using laboratory-grade high shear homogenizers. While overhead stirrers are adequate for many simple laboratory mixing tasks, they are generally not capable of generating the necessary particle size reductions required to produce high-quality cannabis-infused products that consistently feature stated amounts of active ingredients. Uniform particle size reduction, and uniform…

Homogenizer Generator Shafts: How to Determine Efficiency

Homogenizers from CAT Scientific are extremely efficient. In this video we demonstrate how easy it is to thoroughly homogenize 800 mL of oil — in less than two minutes — using our X1000 Homogenizer with G20 sealed shaft fitted with a normal generator. A less sophisticated mixing method might take up to an hour or…
