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…

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.…
