High pressure homogenizer in pharmaceutical industry

In the pharma industry there’s always a need to emulsify ointments, lotions, creams or other viscous materials. Our Sonolator Homogenizer systems help with this and bring a host of benefits listed below.  Most important of which is the ability to provide multiple-feed homogenization of fluids from bulk storage in a single pass even at varying temperatures.  You can meter a hot oil phase with ambient water to make a lotion or ointment emulsion that significantly reduces cooling and improves process cycle times. Sonic has the ability to design its Sonolator into comprehensive multiple-feed sanitary processing systems operating at flow rates from 20-100 gpm at pressures to 500 psi.

Common Benefits of Sonolator Homogenizer Include:

  • Multiple-Feed Homogenizing
  • Metering In Line from Bulk
  • Metering Phases at Different Temps to Reduce Cooling
  • Consistent particle size distribution
  • Repeatable results as no mechanical shear used
  • Scalable results because no moving parts to homogenize
