3 Common Problems High Pressure Homogenizers Can Solve

Problems High Pressure Homogenizers Can SolveHigh pressure homogenizers use pressure to force cell suspensions through narrow channels which break cellular bonds (also called cell lysis) and create uniform particles that are easier to manipulate. It enables businesses across a wide variety of industries (such as the pharmaceutical, chemical, biotech and food ones) to make products that are more stable and, thus, more reliable. Take a look at three common problems that high pressure homogenizers can solve for businesses needing to effectively disrupt cells as part of their manufacturing and/or laboratory processes:

Consistency

All industries, whether they make ice cream or sell flip flops or test medical vaccines, must maintain consistent product output or risk losing the public’s confidence (i.e., money). This means that each of their products and processes must be reproducible in the same way every time. And for many cosmetic, food and chemical businesses (to name just a few), it can also mean that each of their products has a physical consistency (viscosity) that is pliable and appropriate for its intended use. By using high pressure homogenizers with customizable controls, manufacturers and scientists alike are guaranteed uniform particle sizing. This necessarily yields products with the same ingredients and the same textures/densities with each manufacturing run, a great solution for a “constant” problem. 

Quality

Consistency is also unavoidably tied to quality. In the pharmaceutical industry, especially, it can be the difference between life and death. Often manufacturers and/or scientists encounter quality issues stemming from subpar materials and/or subpar processing. To solve these types of problems, they can use high pressure homogenizers which consistently deliver the same size and number of particles in any solution. Furthermore, high pressure homogenizers also effectively reduce particle dimension and tighten particle distribution, thereby ensuring that final products have less waste and more reliable ingredients. It’s critical for people needing drugs that actually have the right amount of active ingredients in them. And even when our lives don’t depend on it, it’s nice that we can buy mayonnaise that doesn’t separate and lotion that’s easily applied!

Cost

Finally, one of the biggest challenges facing businesses is how to reduce expenses and increase ROI. High pressure homogenizers have several features that make them the solution of choice for this problem. For instance, high pressure homogenizers so successfully reduce the size of and disperse particles that companies needing to mix ingredients in order to make a product can do so with a lot fewer processing passes. Fewer passes save companies both time and money.

In addition, most high pressure homogenizers are also capable of processing high volumes with higher yields than other options. And our patented high pressure emulsifying system here at BEE International further ensures that products made with our machines are more stable with longer shelf lives, creating long-lasting items that consumers feel confident buying and using. Finally, our high pressure homogenizers are easy to use, clean and service, compounding their value since less time, money and effort are spent on their maintenance.
