Emulsifier/Homogenizer Mixer and Colloid Mill Difference: 

Vacuum Homogenizing Emulsifier Mixer

High Shear Dispersing Emulsifier is the process of efficiently, rapidly and uniformly entering one or more phases (liquid, solid, gas) into another mutually incompatible continuous phase (usually a liquid) by the Vacuum Homogenizing Emulsifier Mixer. In normal circumstances, the phases are mutually incompatible. When external energy is input, the two materials reorganize into a uniform phase. Due to the high tangential speed and high-frequency mechanical effects from the high-speed rotation of the rotor, the material subjects to strong mechanical and hydraulic shear, centrifugal extrusion, liquid layer friction and impact in the narrow gap between the stator and the rotor of the Vacuum Emulsifying Mixer. A combination of tearing and turbulence forms a suspension (solid/liquid), an emulsion (liquid/liquid) and a foam (gas/liquid). Therefore, the emulsifier/homogenizer mixer of incompatible solid phase, the liquid phase and the gas phase are uniformly and finely dispersed and emulsified under the action of the corresponding mature process and an appropriate amount of additives, and after high frequency circulation and reciprocation, a stable high quality product is finally obtained by emulsifier/homogenizer mixer.

Colloid Mill

The colloid mill is driven by a motor to drive a rotating tooth (or a rotor) to a relatively high-speed rotation with a matching fixed tooth (or a stator). The processing material passes through its own weight or external pressure (which generates from a pump). The pressure produces a downward spiral impact force, which is for strong shearing force, friction force, high-frequency vibration and other physical effects through the gap between the fixed and rotating teeth (the gap is adjustable), so that the material is effectively emulsified and dispersed. And smashing, to achieve the effect of ultra-fine pulverization and emulsification of materials.

Emulsifier/Homogenizer Mixer and Colloid Mill Difference:

From the principle, they all have grinding and pulverizing effect. The refining effect of colloid mill is generally weaker than that of Vacuum Homogeneous Emulsifier, but it has strong adaptability to materials (such as high viscosity and large particles), and their material flow is easier. Downstream,,, so in many cases, it is for the front of the homogenizer or in high viscosity applications. Colloid mills are often for refining when there are many solid materials. However, the specific situation depends on the material.

  1. If need grind thin, it is advisable to use colloid mill, such as 100UM or more. If the raw material particles are relatively small, generally use an emulsifier, such as 1-20UM.
  2. If the solid content of the material is relatively high, it is best to use a colloid mill, such as peanut butter. Generally, the refining effect of the colloid mill is weaker than that of the emulsifying machine. But it has strong adaptability to materials (such as high viscosity, Large particles). So, in many cases, it is for the front of the homogenizer or in high viscosity applications. Colloid mills are often for refining when there are many solid materials than the emulsifier/homogenizer mixer.
