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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
