Colloid mill homogenizer: the principle of operation

Homogenizer. Industrial homogenizers are designed for homogenization of various substances and are widely used in the food, chemical, pharmaceutical industry and road construction.

Among the variety of homogenizers the most prominent place is held by the colloid mill as the ultrafine grinding device (1 micron grinding fineness).

One of the best examples is the colloid mill is a KLM-18 by GlobeCore. It consists of:

  • Housing;
  • Front and rear bearing;
  • Housing flange;
  • Stator;
  • Rotor;
  • Seal.

The principle of the colloid mill is “wet milling”, i.e. to achieve the desired result, one of the processed media has to be liquid. When the product enters the gap between the rotor and the stator, its particles revolve around their own axis at high speed and get subsequently broken by the centrifugal force.

The KLM-18 colloid mill features adjustable gap (0 – 3 mm) between the rotor and the stator. Changing this gap affects the fineness of grinding.

Another advantage of the colloid mills by GlobeCore is their ability to disperse and also homogenize and processed medium. They are used as homogenizers in the production of highly stable colloidal solutions, suspensions and ultrafine emulsions. The heating jacket supplies or removes heat in the grinding zone.

The KLM colloid mill is easily integrated into existing production lines and provides the necessary homogenization of products.
