The Enigma VMH vertical multistage homogenizers are designed to create hyperfine emulsions and suspensions in the pharmaceutical, chemical, and food industries. The VMH-series homogenizers provide, for certain applications, a level of homogenization comparable to processing with piston homogenizers, but without the drawbacks like:
- Greater wear and constant replacing of valves and pistons
- High electricity and lubricant consumption
- Low throughput
- Pulsating action
- High cost of maintenance
Homogenization of a mix with multiple components is achieved through a series of stages, each of which works intensely on the particles of product. Each rotor–stator-type homogenizing head in the standard version has a rotation speed of 3000 rpm, and it is optionally possible to increase this speed to 6000 or 12,000 rpm.
How it works:
The axial stages are located on a common shaft at a certain distance from one another. The product is sucked into each of these stages in turn, and under centrifugal force it is flipped radially onto the walls of the homogenizer, passing through a rotor–stator gap, after which it is sucked into the next stage. The product passes through the axial stages of the homogenizer under high pressure (up to approx. 10 bar)
Highly effective reduction of particles and homogenization is achieved through a combination of the rotary cavitation effect and high pressure.
