When I think back to my college chemistry classes, I recall wondering how humans know so much about molecules that we can’t even see; I thought that the researchers behind these findings were amazing! As a working professional in the science field, I now know that I was right- those researchers truly were and are extraordinary individuals. But they also had access to chemical processing equipment that made their jobs easier in terms of both time and accuracy. In particular, the diverse and essential function of homogenizers makes this piece of equipment indispensable in any chemical laboratory or plant. Read on to better understand how having a homogenizer in your laboratory will benefit your chemical process.
When selecting a high pressure homogenizer for chemical processing, it is essential to choose a company and model that will provide you with high quality output. Those on the higher market end will reduce the particle size of challenging materials; although most homogenizers can reduce particle size, only the best will process challenging materials, oftentimes in very few passes and with uniform output. These decreased particle sizes correspond with increased surface area, a valuable quality in chemical reactions.
In addition, homogenizers are beneficial to researchers who are either trying to replicate old processes or experiment with new processes. For example, the equipment can preserve existing particle morphologies or alternatively yield new and unusual particle morphologies. Finally, a high quality homogenizer should provide you with high aspect ratio, one-step blending and formulation, purification, and an accelerated chemical process, any of which is critical to successful experimentation.
Ideal dispersions and finer particles are, as described above, significant functions of a chemical processing homogenizer. By attaining these, you can expect to see maximum particle packing, better particle coating during formulations, increased conductivity, smoother surface quality, and finer printed features. A variety of industrial products can benefit from these characteristics; just a few include polymers (e.g. acrylic emulsions, solutions and dispersions, urethane prepolymers, and solvent-based emulsions), pigment and ink dispersions, carbon nanotubes, additives, resins, adhesives, and pastes.
