Ytron Z Lab

Small scale development rotor stator homogeniser

Applications: Homogenisation, Laboratory Scale Equipment

One or more liquid phases, as well as unsuspended particles, are passed by a forced-feed passage through the rotor-stator-system. The In-line-principle effects a defined and reproducible application of shear forces.
With the parameters of slot width, number and distance of the shear slots, rotational speed and flow rate, the desired dispersing or homogenising effect, can be infinitely adjusted.
Conventional batch processes often require recirculation and lead to a localised over-shearing of the product. This also leads to irregular treatment of the batch.
In contrast, the YTRON-Z ensures a homogeneously and reproducibly dispersed product in a single pass.

Advantages of YTRON-Z

The forced feed passage allows reproducible results
Gentle treatment of shear sensitive products, e.g. STRETCHING of yoghurt, direct curd products, fromage frais and cream cheese at low speed
High speed operation to effect a continuous emulsificaton reaching a droplet size as low as 1 micron for various emulsions (o/w and w/o) and dispersions
Up to three slotted rows of teeth with variable slot widths and finest distance of the slots in each rotor/stator set
Hygienic execution available for use in the food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry
