Homogenization, also known as particle size reduction or micronization, is the process of disrupting cells in order to ensure uniform particle size in emulsions or dispersions. This process is common in many industries, including food, pharmaceutical, biotech, cosmetic, and chemical.
Pion's BEE brand offers a wide variety of high pressure homogenizers that accomplish a variety of tasks, including particle size reduction, cell disruption, high pressure pasteurization, nano and micro emulsions, and dispersions. Every industry has its own unique challenges and needs; our high pressure homogenizers can help your company accomplish its production goals. Continue reading for a brief overview of the various homogenizers we offer, and how each one can best suit the needs of your industry.
Our laboratory homogenizers include the Nano DeBEE, Micro DeBEE, and Mini DeBEE. All of our laboratory homogenizers are suitable for the following applications:
- Cell disruption
- Particle size reduction
- Nano/micro emulsions and dispersions
This cost effective benchtop electric unit offers a reliable and consistent process for laboratory and research and development functions. The Nano DeBEE features a reservoir for small volumes, adjustable process pressure parameters, a high quality heat exchanger, as well as adjustable back pressure.
The Micro DeBEE is an air operated compact bench top unit that is suitable for laboratory and R&D applications. It operates at pressures up to 45,000psi, offers 100% guaranteed scalability of results, and contains a modular emulsifying cell, which allows for a broad range of applications with its multiple flow patterns.
The mini DeBEE is a cost effective electric unit that is suited for both laboratory and production. It offers a PLC control with digital display, dual feel capabilities, lifetime training for new employees and students, and is equipped with a modular emulsifying cell (EC).
