The key to creating a stable emulsion is obtaining the finest possible droplet size. The more shear energy introduced into the mix, the smaller the suspended droplets will become, creating a fine stable emulsion.

Effortless Stable Emulsions with High Shear Mixing

The high shear rotor/stator design of the Silverson mixer is ideally suited to this application and can easily achieve emulsions with a droplet size of 2 to 5 microns. In certain formulations, even finer emulsions down to 0.5 microns can be obtained.

How to Make an Emulsion

Eliminating the Need for High-Pressure Homogenisers

One remarkable advantage of the Silverson mixer is its ability to achieve exceptionally small droplet sizes without the need for additional equipment like high-pressure homogenisers. By utilising the Silverson mixer’s shear forces effectively, manufacturers can simplify the homogenisation process, reduce production costs, and enhance overall efficiency.

Comprehensive Range of Silverson Mixers for Emulsion Preparation

Silverson offers a wide range of in-tank and In-Line mixers suitable for emulsion preparation across various applications. From laboratory-scale mixers for small-scale testing and development to bulk production units for large-scale manufacturing, Silverson provides versatile and reliable mixers to meet diverse emulsion preparation needs.

By leveraging the advanced capabilities of Silverson mixers, manufacturers can consistently produce stable emulsions with exceptional droplet sizes. This ensures superior product quality, enhances customer satisfaction, and streamlines the emulsion manufacturing process.
