How to Maintain Lab Homogenizer Shaft Bearings

Keeping laboratory and pilot plant homogenizers in proper operating order requires special to critical components located out of sight within the homogenizer shaft tube.  These are the homogenizer shaft bearings that keep the rotor shaft centered in the tube.  While homogenizer shaft bearings and other components are in the tube they are fully exposed to…

Keep It Simple — How a Modular Homogenizer Can Facilitate R&D

The path to creating a marketable product of consistent quality typically involves at least some initial research and development. Whether you’re making tinctures or beverages, concentrates or creams, you’ll need specialized equipment to achieve your goals. And you’ll probably need to tinker in the lab before you decide on a specific formulation and a reliable,…

What Is Emulsification and What Are Its Benefits?

Emulsification is the process of creating an emulsion. And what, exactly, is an emulsion? It’s a substance in which two immiscible liquids, such as oil and water, are bound together in the presence of an emulsifying agent. The result is a single, slightly creamy looking liquid. Homemade vinaigrette salad dressing provides the perfect example. Savvy home…

How Lab Homogenizers Contribute to R&D

Some of us may remember grandma with the spoon and bowl or mom with the Mixmaster but for R&D scientists this mixing action is accomplished by using lab homogenizers.  These compact but immeasurably useful benchtop instruments are used to develop scalable processes for processing ingredients – some of which may be initially incompatible – into…

Flow-through Chamber Accessory for a Lab Homogenizer

Lab homogenizers are often the instruments of choice when developing pilot-plant procedures to be scaled up to production line operations. Typically laboratory homogenizers are suspended over beakers or flasks containing samples to be processed by being drawn into the homogenizer generator for mixing, dispersing, emulsifying and similar treatment. Researchers can greatly extend the utility of…

Cleaning and Sterilizing Laboratory Homogenizers

As with medical and surgical instruments, laboratory homogenizers must be thoroughly cleaned and sterilized or disinfected after use to avoid contaminating subsequent samples. The complex designs of homogenizer rotor-stator generator teeth and slots provide an ideal setting to trap and hold sample particles. Here we present a suggested procedure that can be employed or modified…

Understanding Laboratory Homogenizers

A lab homogenizer is often the tool of choice for researchers in pilot plant labs to develop procedures aimed at achieving the most efficient method of processing samples that later can be applied to full-scale production lines.  These versatile tools are fitted with what are called rotor-stator assemblies  powered by a drive motor, much in…
