Homogenisation plays a vital role in the production of various products, including creams, ointments, sauces, flavouring emulsions, and pharmaceutical suspensions. For these applications, the ideal globule or droplet size falls within the range of 2 – 5 microns to ensure uniformity.

Silverson Mixer Homogenisers are designed to deliver outstanding results precisely within this range. Our precision‑machined Silverson workhead employs a three-stage mixing/homogenising process to ensure excellent homogenisation outcomes.

Step 1: Intense Mixing

The high-speed rotor of the Silverson workhead efficiently draws materials into the mixing chamber, where they undergo thorough mixing.

What is Homogenisation?

Step 2: Mechanical Shear

As materials move towards the periphery of the workhead due to centrifugal force, they encounter mechanical shear within the precise gap between the rotor and stator. This mechanical shearing action further reduces the globule or particle size, promoting uniformity.

Step 3: Hydraulic Shear

Intense hydraulic shear propels the product through the stator screen at high velocity. Fresh material is continually drawn into the workhead, progressively reducing globule or particle size and quickly resulting in a homogeneous and uniform blend.

Choose from Silverson’s range of in-tank and In-Line Mixer Homogenisers, carefully designed to cater to various homogenisation requirements. Whether you need a compact solution for small batches or a high-capacity unit for large-scale production, Silverson has the right option for you. You can even test one at your own facility – contact Silverson today.
