How to Specify a High Powered Lab Homogenizer

Lab homogenizers are relied on by R&D and pilot plant personnel to develop then refine processing guidelines used for commercial-scale production.  Processing may involve blending, emulsifying, dispersing, cell disrupting, particle reduction and similar activities.   Samples range from highly fluid liquids to more resistant viscosities, to fibers and in some cases, reducing particles to manageable size.…

Five Laboratory Homogenizer Operating Tips

Operating a laboratory homogenizer looks to be relatively simple. What could go wrong? Plug it in and start the mixing operation. But hold on for a moment! You’re operating a small but relatively costly instrument designed to accomplish a variety of mixing, stirring, emulsifying and dispersing functions, many at high speeds and for long duration.…

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…

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…

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…

The Pitfalls of Blending Distillate and Terpenes with a Hotplate Stirrer

When manufacturing cannabis distillates, such as CBD or THC, processors have discovered it makes sense to reintroduce an appropriate measure of terpenes. Blending distillates and terpenes helps make a more appealing product. It also happens to make a substance that’s easier to work with during processing and packaging. That’s because natural cannabis terpenes help reduce…

Temperature Control is Crucial for Blending Distillate and Terpenes

Blending distillate with terpenes is an important step in the creation of various cannabis products intended for retail sale. Of course, terpenes are aromatic compounds that occur naturally in whole cannabis plants. Their retention — or reintroduction — to select products may contribute to the flavor and final character profiles of these products. Perhaps more…

Invest in Success: Start Your Cannabis-Infusion Business off Right

Success in the lucrative cannabis-products marketplace will depend heavily on your ability to consistently deliver high-quality products. And that depends on your willingness to invest in the right laboratory homogenizer equipment. Make no mistake: This is no job for home appliances. A kitchen blender, for example, may seem adequate for blending CBD-laced salves or tinctures…
