Hand-Held Lab Homogenizer for Small Sample Sizes

X120 Handheld homogenizer

Developing new compounds involving scarce and/or costly ingredients may involve several trials in the research lab.  Processing the ingredients is facilitated when researchers use a hand-held lab homogenizer for small sample sizes. An example of a versatile hand-held homogenizer is the CAT Scientific X120 designed to process samples as small as 0.1 ml but up…

How to Maintain Lab Homogenizer Shaft Bearings

As with mechanical components in top-tier watches, finely tuned engines and similar precision equipment, lab homogenizer shaft bearings require careful attention and “TLC” if researchers rely on these mixing, blending and dispersing tools when developing new or improved processes across a broad spectrum of food, drug and industrial product manufacturing. Maintaining lab homogenizer shaft bearings…

Using a Flow-Through Chamber for Sports Drink Processing

Coupling a laboratory homogenizer drive motor to a flow-through chamber attachment is an excellent way to mix ingredients such as food supplements and energy drinks.  Today’s flow through chambers can process high volumes and serve either as a pilot plant for food processing or for production line homogenizing and blending. The popularity of energy drinks…

Cleaning Tips for CAT Scientific Homogenizers

You’ve made a substantial investment in your rotor/stator homogenizer or emulsifier, so it is important that you maintain it to the highest standards, including cleaning the shafts and generator assemblies to avoid potential cross-contamination when processing different samples. Cleaning is especially critical because of the complex shapes of generators – many of which have extremely…
