How Does the Emulsifier Function?

Emulsifying is the process of mixing two liquids that are difficult to mix. The main focus of emulsifying is the dispersion of the discontinuous phase into preferably fine droplets. Rotor-stator emulsifying machine is particularly well-suited for emulsifying tasks. Water and fat can not be mixed under normal condition. The combination of high shearing and expanding forces in the operating head makes the mixing and emulsifying task become possible, and allows for very fine droplets. High turbulences also enable rotor-stator machines to contribute to a quick transport of emulsifier molecules to the newly-formed surfaces.

Numerous medical ointments, cosmetic products, milk, oil-fat chemical product , and dressings are emulsions/suspension. The emulsifying process can be visualized by looking at mixing water with oil, or fat. The problem is that even after intensive stirring for a long period of time, the oil swims at the water’s surface once again. Then we will need the help of high shear homogenizer to catalyze and advanced technology to improve effect.

Emulsifier Function

Emulsions are usually stabilized by emulsifiers such as tensides, which are mixed into one of the two phases before emulsifying. Emulsifiers are one part water-loving (hydrophilic) and one part fat-loving (lipophilic). One side of the emulsifier molecule bonds with the water and the other one with the oil. In this manner, emulsitying machine stabilize the produced droplets and therefore counteract a segregation of the emulsion. KOS offers innovative mixing techniques for emulsifying that are suitable for the production of many different kinds of emulsions:

Emulsifying with the ULTRA-TURRAX dispersing machines in batch processes
Continuous emulsifying with the WRL series rotor-stator mixing machines
Continuous emulsifying with the HPH high-pressure homogenizer
Emulsifying in recirculation processes

KOS’S advanced emulsifying technology ensures the reduction degree that is adapted to each individual application. Emulsifying with KOS machines also guarantees a tight particle size distribution and long-time stability of the produced emulsions.

With a professional factory supplying various types of machines, we have some equipment in stock. After you placing an order, we will handle the order and deliever goods to you as soon as posiible. Some special requirement of machine to produce superior quality could be realized by custom-making. High-power homogeneous emulsifying machine could generate stronger power and greater centrifugal force, so it is quite suitable for lage-scale liquids mixing into a steady product with high quality.
