laboratory homogenizersHomogenization, also known as particle size reduction or micronization, is a popular technique used across varying industries: pharmaceutical, biotech, cosmetic, and food. Homogenization equipment can be used in virtually any environment, from laboratory and R&D settings to pilot and larger industrial plants. However, before selecting the right homogenizer for the task at hand, it is important to know what to look for before purchasing. Continue reading to learn more about the selection of Laboratory Homogenizers offered by BEE International.

Our homogenizers at BEE International include the Nano DeBEE, Micro DeBEE, and Mini DeBEE. These homogenizers offer a wide variety of settings and capabilities for emulsions, dispersions, cell rupture, and liposomes, and allow for high quality, repeatable, and scalable results. Here is a brief rundown of each type of laboratory homogenizer:

Nano DeBEE

The Nano DeBEE laboratory homogenizer contains a patented modular emulsifying cell (EC), which allows for multiple flow patterns for a broad range of applications. The Nano DeBEE is also well suited for laboratory experimentation for the following applications:

  • Cell disruption
  • Particle size reduction
  • Nano / micro emulsions and dispersions
  • Polymers

Micro DeBEE

The Micro DeBEE laboratory homogenizer is air powered and has a capacity of 15 liters per hour. This homogenizer is suitable for sanitary applications and offers guaranteed scalability of results. Other features include:

  • Patented DeBEE modular homogenizing cell with no moving parts
  • Sample sizes as small as 10 ml
  • Adjustable back pressure – 0 to 5,000 psi
  • Heat exchanger for chilled water convertible to ice bath

Mini DeBEE

The Mini DeBEE laboratory homogenizer is a cost effective homogenizing unit that is appropriate for both laboratory and production use. It offers size reduction down to nanometers, with high quality performance and scalable results. It also offers the following benefits:

  • Handles abrasive and viscous materials
  • PLC control and monitoring
  • Proven scale up to production rates
  • Constant processing pressure

No matter which laboratory homogenizer you choose, you can rest assured that they all meet BEE International’s high standard of quality. Our laboratory homogenizers all offer features that are easily configured to meet your application needs and processing goals. We also offer a 1-year factory warranty on all of our equipment, in addition to lifetime training for students and new employees.
