The elegance of CAT Scientific’s laboratory homogenizers derives from their flexibility and supreme utility. No two particle size reduction tasks are exactly the same. Nor do all mixing tasks feature the same challenges. The liquid medium, for instance, often ranges from a simple aqueous solution to a thick, viscous medium, such as an oil or…

Several decisions must be made when setting up a laboratory or pilot plant homogenizing exercise. Drive motor speed and power along with the rotor-stator generator assembly are among the top considerations. But don’t overlook the modular homogenizer drive shaft tube to which the stator is attached and which encases the rotor shaft. Drive shaft tubes…

Rotor-Stator Generator Components Homogenizer generators – the working end of lab homogenizers that perform mixing, dispersing, emulsifying, and similar operations in research and pilot plant studies – are two-part assemblies.  The first component is a rotating rotor attached by a rod to the drive motor.  The rotor is a precisely machined tool with multiple sharply…

Laboratory mixing equipment – lab mixers, lab stirrers and lab homogenizers (sometimes known as high shear mixers) – are important research tools.   Which to use depends on several factors including but not limited to sample size, sample viscosity, the purpose of the mixing or stirring action and whether or not heating the sample is desired. …
