The Sonolator homogenizes by using a fixed orifice specially engineered to optimize shear along it’s very sharp edges. There is less variability this way. Added to this is a fixed blade that subjects the high velocity fluid to extreme cavitation, further obliterating droplets and agglomerates! By not having a spring-loaded mixing element and by not using mechanical shear or moving parts, scalability becomes a non issue and quality results can be achieved at lower pressures and lower energy costs. To make homogenizing our way even more attractive is the fact that we do not disguise the PD pump element in some obtrusive case. Instead, we use any of a variety of PD pumps to match fluid viscosity or hygiene needs.
As a final innovation, the Sonolator homogenizer is adaptable to high-pressure multiple-feed homogenizing, where several process streams can be accurately metered at ratio to combine in our mixing chamber to make emulsions instantly. This means a reduction in tank usage as water and bulk materials can be metered from their sources rather than be tanked in a premix vessel. It also means hot and cold streams can be metered simultaneously, thereby significantly reducing post emulsion cooling time!
