Emulsion Manufacturing with Sonic Equipment
An Emulsion is a mixture of 2 or more immiscible fluids where one liquid exists as droplets, of microscopic or ultramicroscopic size, distributed throughout the other liquid. Emulsions are formed from the liquid components either spontaneously or, more often, by mechanical means such as agitation, fluid acceleration, cavitation, vibration, shaking or excessive direction change. Emulsions suffer many instabilities and will eventually separate into individual liquid layers. Sonic's purpose is to develop equipment that will form emulsions for you that don't separate readily and possess enhanced shelf life, sub-micron particle sizes and uniform particle size distributions.
Sonolator Homogenizing Systems have been used in all the major
industries to form superior emulsions on a continuous basis. We
use the power of fluid acceleration, cavitation and high pressure to
dramatically reduce phase droplet sizes and create extremely stable
emulsions. The Sonolator, seen here, houses a specially engineered
that subjects material to high pressure and cavitation. A PD pump,
instrumentation, controls and PLC are used to make a complete
homogenizing system. Because the Sonolator works in-line on a
continuous basis, it lends itself well to Multiple-Feed Homogenization.
This is where a Sonolator system containing 2 or more PD pumps and a
Sonolator meters various phases, phase 1 being water and phase 2 being
silicone oil for example, and emulsifies them instantly at point of
contact at the Sonolator Orifice. This allows for oils to be drawn
from bulk, water to be drawn from source without being placed in a
process tank and saves on overall time and expense!
