High shear homogenizer disperses one phase or ingredient (liquid, solid, gas) into a main continuous phase (liquid), with which it would normally be. A rotor together with a stator is used either in a tank containing the solution to be mixed, or in pipe through which the solution passes, to create shear. Usually, a high speed mixer can be suited four types of working heads including the claw type, the mesh type, the long hole type and the round type for different working conditions. The high shear homogenizer can be widely used in cosmetics, food, beverage, chemical, pharmaceutical, paint& ink industry etc.
Most cosmetic cream formulations are emulsions which are defined as a heterogeneous system composed of an immiscible liquid dispersed as droplets in another liquid. Moreover, most of cosmetic creams are of the oil-in- water type with an oil phase or water-in-oil emulsion. Therefore, the manufacturing process is centered on two of the most difficult mixing tasks: hydration of thickening and suspending agents and preparation of a stable emulsion. Many problems can be encountered during the manufacturing process when using conventional agitators:
1.Hydration of thickening and suspending agents is one of the most difficult of all mixing operations. Agglomerates can easily form and some ingredients require shear in order to develop their desired properties;
2.When adding powdered ingredients to the vessel, partially hydrated materials can build up on the vessel wall and parts of the agitator;
3.Agitators cannot easily form stable emulsions even when the oil and water phases have been heated;
4.Long process times and additional equipment are often required to achieve a homogeneous product;
Solutions to solve above though a KOS high speed emulsifying machine:
1.Consistent product quality and repeatability; Advantages of KOS high speed disperser;
4.Rapidly reducing mixing time;
5.Maximized yields of raw materials as thickening agents are fully hydrated and other ingredients fully dispersed.
KOS is one of the professional industrial manufacturers, which specialized in some kinds of industrial machines such as high shear mixers, bottom homogenizers and laboratory homogenizers. If interested, please kindly visit our websites: www.emulsifyingmixer.com for more information.Loading Likes...
