Homogenizer from GEA Niro
Homogenization is a term that describes the process of making a mixture homogeneous. One of the oldest applications of homogenization is in milk processing where the aim is to prevent or delay the natural separation of cream from the rest of the emulsion.
Homogenization technology is based on the use of pressure on liquids through a specially designed valve to subdivide particles or droplets present in fluids into the very smallest sizes (sub-micron) and create a stable dispersion ideal for further processing.
Homogenizers/high-pressure pumps apply dynamic pressure under continuous flow conditions, processing fluids such as emulsions and dispersions for a large variety of applications, viscosities, and physical properties.
Homogenizers used in milk pre-treatment and wet mixing
Today, homogenizers and high-pressure pumps are an integrated part of process lines for the Food & Dairy industries. GEA Niro Soavi S.p.A supplies all the homogenizers used in milk pre-treatment and wet mixing and high-pressure pumps are typically used as feed pumps for spray dryers where the atomization is done by high-pressure nozzles. Very often the homogenization and high-pressure pumps are combined into one machine with a total pressure drop requirement of 400-600 bars.
GEA Niro Soavi S.p.A's homogenizers/high-pressure pumps are available in many models providing through-puts from 100 l/h to 50,000 l/h at continuous working pressures from 100 bars up to 1500 bars.
Custom engineered solutions and special versions for specific applications are available across the range and a wide selection of options helps to define machine features that fit exactly into customer and process requirements for any industry application.
