laboratory pilot and industrial homogenizersIf you work in the cosmetic, pharmaceutical, biotech, or food industries, it is likely that you are familiar with the process of homogenization. Chances are even higher that you utilize this technique yourself. Homogenization, also known as micronization or particle size reduction, is a process that is growing increasingly popular in a number of industries. The simple act of reducing a particle’s size can have a far-reaching impact – among other benefits, homogenization can reduce overall costs, improve quality, increase a product’s shelf life, and improve overall customer satisfaction.  

However, before choosing the right homogenizer for your specific task, it is important to understand the options that are available. BEE International offers a number of homogenizers to suit the needs of virtually every industry. Our homogenizers are suitable for laboratory use, as well as pilot plant and industrial applications. Continue reading to learn more about the benefits our homogenizers can offer to your industry.

Laboratory Homogenizers

Laboratory homogenizers are smaller in size and are suitable for small scale applications in a laboratory or Research and Development setting.  At BEE International, our laboratory homogenizers offer unlimited options for creation emulsions and dispersions, as well as performing cell rupture or working with liposomes. Our laboratory homogenizers include the Nano DeBEE, Micro DeBEE, and Mini DeBEE models, which offer the following features:

  • High performance technology
  • Easy to use, clean and maintain
  • Repeatable and scalable results
  • Maximum operating pressure of 45,000 psi
  • Capacity of up to 22 L/hr

Pilot Plant and Industrial Homogenizers

For homogenizing larger volumes or scaling up results from the laboratory, BEE International’s line of Pilot Plant and Industrial Homogenizers are well-suited to meet your needs. Our pilot plant and industrial homogenizers include the DeBEE 2000, DeBEE 3000, and DeBEE 4000. These homogenizers utilize a patented emulsifying cell, which guarantees scalability of results. These homogenizers also offer the following benefits and features:

  • Reliable and predictable continuous operation
  • Patented intensifier technology that is reliable and versatile
  • Electronic synchronization that produces constant pressure
  • Unique Clean In Place (CIP) that allows for faster and more thorough cleaning
  • Menu guided maintenance and calibration
  • CE and cGMP compliant
  • Maximum pressure of up to 45,000 psi
