Homogenization in the Chemical Industry: What to Look for in a Homogenizer

Homogenization, more simply known as particle size reduction, is a technique that is gaining popularity in a number of industries: cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and food are just a few of the industries that are utilizing technique. But did you know that the chemical industry also utilizes the process of homogenization? It’s true – homogenizers are being used more and more in this growing field. However, before you choose your next homogenizer for the chemical industry, it is important to know what to look for in a homogenizer. Continue reading to learn more about how homogenizers are used in the chemical field, as well as what features you should be looking for before choosing your next piece of homogenizing equipment.

Size Reduction Capabilities

When looking for your next homogenizer, it is important that it has the all-important capability to reduce size of even the most challenging of materials. A quality homogenizer will be able to handle both new and unusual particle morphologies while preserving existing morphologies, and will be able to handle one-step blending and formulation.

Dispersion and Emulsion Creation

In addition to being able to effectively reduce particle size, a high quality homogenizer will be able to create dispersions and emulsions with ease. A good homogenizer should be able to create dispersions and emulsions that allow for maximum particle packing, better particle coating during formulations, smoother surface quality, and increased conductivity.
