GEA is the global technology and market leader for high-pressure pumps and homogenizers.
The homogenization process is a mechanical one, achieved in one or more passes by forcing product through a homogenizing valve at pressures of 800–1500 bar. Within the valve, as a result of compression, acceleration, etc., the oil droplets are shattered and the suspended solid and semi-solid particles are dispersed, stabilizing the emulsion and providing the levels of micronization required. GEA homogenizers are fitted with specifically designed high efficiency valves for optimized cell disruption that operate at the lowest possible pressure and recirculate material in a safe and cost-effective manner, with less product being discarded.
The CDMO Biomay has worked closely with GEA to scale up the homogenization process from laboratory to production size and achieve the same cells disruption effect in the proteins and microorganisms manufacturing process.Read more
