5 Key Factors before Purchasing a Homogenizer


It’s a little difficult to choose a right homogenizer manufacturer when once the application has been matched to the homogenizing method. To help buyers understand homogenizer requirements, some common homogenizer specifications and terms are defined below.

  1. Motor size (Watts): regarding the motor size, generally measured in power or Watts, the requirements of it are application specific. Usually speaking, if you are processing a thick, viscous material, you need to put more strain on the motor, so you may choose higher wattage to homogenize it more effectively. On the contrary, lower wattage of motor size will be chosen.


  1. Speed control and range (rpm): one common feature on multiple types of homogenizers is speed control, even though most homogenizers on the market do not require the maximum speeds. For instance, regarding mechanical homogenizers, it is best to start with slow speed and gradually increase speed and ensure to control speeds at all times.


  1. Processing range (ml): it refers to the volume, or sample size, to be homogenized. It is possible that multiple sample sizes, from micro liters to thousands of liters, can be processed using the same homogenizer unit. However, you will need to purchase the appropriate generator, probe, or tool to match the volume range. That is to say, a generator or probe which can better homogenize material with micro liters may be not suitable for what homogenize material with thousands of liters. Thus, before purchasing a right homogenizer, you need to know the processing range of your material.


  1. Sound level: Managing the noise generated by equipment can improve the overall efficiency and environment of the laboratory. Take ultrasonic homogenizers as an example, the term refers to any frequency above the common threshold of human hearing, usually noted at 18 kHz, thus any ‘noise’ that is created is not a result of the ultrasonic itself, but the result of the vibration of the liquid making noise and is different for vessels of varying materials.


  1.  Generator price: one of the most important components in homogenizing industry is the generator and not necessarily the motor unit. And the most expensive item for a homogenizer will be the generator. A high quality generator can be ordered and regularly maintained or properly cleaned; the investment you make today will last for decades.
