How to Homogenize Vegetable Glycerin for E-Juice

This short video provides dramatic proof of the effect of temperature on the ability to homogenize vegetable glycerin for E-Juice. In it I demonstrate how glycerin at room temperature simply cannot be homogenized no matter how fast the homogenizer drive unit rotates. But after heating the glycerin to 60⁰C (140⁰F) it readily homogenizes in the…

A Brief on Lab Homogenizer Applications

The term “homogenizing” covers a variety of processes that simply defined means blending materials that may or may not be compatible.  A common example is homogenized milk.  It is homogenized to provide even consistency by dispersing the heavier cream into the more liquid milk to and prevent separation during storage. A much broader definition relates…
