How to Maintain your Laboratory Homogenizer

Laboratory homogenizers are important investments for R&D and pilot plants developing processes to scale up to commercial production.  First appearances may suggest scientific homogenizers are not that complex.  Not true!  A close look reveals that lab homogenizers contain several complex components, all of which are capable of trapping contaminants that must be removed before processing…

Hand-Held Lab Homogenizer for Small Sample Sizes

X120 Handheld homogenizer

Developing new compounds involving scarce and/or costly ingredients may involve several trials in the research lab.  Processing the ingredients is facilitated when researchers use a hand-held lab homogenizer for small sample sizes. An example of a versatile hand-held homogenizer is the CAT Scientific X120 designed to process samples as small as 0.1 ml but up…

How to Maintain Lab Homogenizer Shaft Bearings

As with mechanical components in top-tier watches, finely tuned engines and similar precision equipment, lab homogenizer shaft bearings require careful attention and “TLC” if researchers rely on these mixing, blending and dispersing tools when developing new or improved processes across a broad spectrum of food, drug and industrial product manufacturing. Maintaining lab homogenizer shaft bearings…

Using a Flow-Through Chamber for Sports Drink Processing

Coupling a laboratory homogenizer drive motor to a flow-through chamber attachment is an excellent way to mix ingredients such as food supplements and energy drinks.  Today’s flow through chambers can process high volumes and serve either as a pilot plant for food processing or for production line homogenizing and blending. The popularity of energy drinks…
