Our high pressure, high shear, technology excels at producing the smallest, most uniform particle sizes, with tight distributions, for Lab scale projects up to production systems with repeatable results.

Our Homogenizing systems are highly efficient at producing particles sizes in the range from a few nanometers to a few micrometers with the following important parameters:

Tight distribution - most of the droplets are equal to, or below, the target size with no "tails" visible on the distribution graph.

The smallest size - smallest ratio of droplet surface area to droplet volume.

Particle Size Reduction - our High Pressure Homogenizers

Sophisticated temperature control systems, including pre- and post-cooling or heating, to preserve product quality and purity.

Ultra high pressures to 60,000 psi (4200 bar) and processing from 1 ml, e.g. for Lab R&D, to in excess of 1000 l/hour for production systems.

Our systems are easy to scale-up from Lab R&D to full production flow rates.

High operating reliability resulting in low on-going ownership and maintenance costs.

Benefits of Particle Size Reduction

Increased bioavailability and efficacy of the active active ingredient in the drug or product.

Improvements in product taste, colour, flowability and chemical reaction.

Higher product stability resulting in increased storage life.

Minimization or elimination of contamination.

Laboratory / Bench-top

Up to 16 l/h. Processing cells from 1m to 35ml. For R&D and small volumes.

Pilot - smaller scale Production

Up to 125 l/hr for smaller scale production.

Production Scale

With flow rates up to 1000 l/hr (264 US Gallons). Unrivalled performance.

Benefits described above can be achieved when our reliable high pressure pumping system generates up to 60,000 psi / 4200 bar (highest available) to force the product stream into the processing section which results in:

1. Impact on entry to the valve (piston gap) or micro-channel section.

2. Very high liquid shear in this section.

3. Sudden pressure drop upon discharge.
