When to Utilize Inline Homogenizers for Your Application

One important question to answer when beginning any manufacturing project requiring homogenization, micronization, or particle size reduction is the determination of which type of homogenizer to use.  Various types of homogenizers exist, all with a multitude of pros and cons. One popular type of homogenizer is the Inline Homogenizer.

Inline Homogenizers are designed to handle all types of tasks, including emulsifying, suspending, dispersing, and blending. These homogenizers are used in a variety of industries, including pharmaceutical, cosmetic, biological, and chemical. What makes inline homogenizers unique are the fact that they are positioned within the production line, aligned with the flow of product.  Inline homogenization is different from other types of homogenization, such as batch homogenization, where ingredients are mixed in a standalone unit before going through the homogenization process.

Inline homogenizers are suitable for applications where larger quantities are needed for production. Since they are able to be installed right on the production line, they are especially useful for applications where continuous processing and homogenization is needed during the manufacturing process.

The benefits of inline homogenization are endless. Not only is inline homogenization a faster process, especially in situations where larger quantities are being produced, it is also a more economical option, since additional mixing tanks and vessels are usually not needed. Inline homogenization also ensures consistency throughout a production run, since homogenization is occurring continuously on the production line.
