Did you know that… you can find homogenized products on a daily basis? High pressure homogenization overcomes the physical separation of liquids long term by micronizing and standardizing particles.
It may surprise you how many products need homogenization in their manufacturing process to make them more compatible with your daily life. Stabilization and a longer shelf life have always been among the highest priorities in many different processing industries but, especially nowadays, as lifestyles continue to change rapidly, they are becoming more and more valued.
High-pressure homogenization is well known in dairy, liquid food and beverage applications, where it is a key process for reducing particles to the required size in order to achieve the same standard dimension and, consequently, the even distribution of particles.
This reduction creates a stable emulsion with improved shelf life, viscosity, color and taste in the final product, and provides a starting point for further production processes.
Particle micronization also has an essential role in pharmaceutical applications for the production of inhalation products, intravenous emulsions and in biological cell lysis (bacteria, yeast, algae), as well as in the biotech, chemical and personal care industries.
