The new NiSoX-Valve geometry facilitates a better distribution of energy inside the device. The better concentration of energy towards the middle of the valve and the effect of a modulated cloud cavitation are the most important elements that promote a more effective micronization of particles, and above all a significantly enhanced uniformity of the product.
The design of the new GEA NiSoX-Valve combines mainly four factors optimizing the energy generated inside the system:
The effect of these factors on the flow is made possible only by virtue of a new mechanical configuration, the NiSoX-Valve is made up of only few active components: a deflector, a radial collider and the CCMS system (Cavitation Cloud Modulating System).
Passing through the adjustable deflector, the liquid accelerates to a high speed, whereupon the radial impact occurring in the radial collider generates a powerful cavitation effect, micronizing the particles more effectively and achieving an improvement in the physical properties of products.
The GEA NiSoX-Valve achieves excellent results especially with VHP applications in a pressure range from 700 to 1500 bar, which are particularly suitable for processing emulsions (micro and nanoemulsions) in pharma, cosmetic and chemical industries.
The GEA NiSoX-Valve delivers unprecedented results in terms of standard deviation (or polydispersity index), and high level of micronization not reachable with other devices.
The NiSoX-Valve is available for the complete GEA homogenizers range, from the laboratory unit to industrial scale.
