The difference between colloid mill and emulsifier

Both colloid mill and emulsifier can produce equipment for shearing, emulsifying, dispersing and mixing materials, so many customers will compare colloid mill and emulsifier, but in fact, colloid mill and emulsifier are two kinds of equipment based on principle, structure, and use.

The colloid mill is a kind of grinding equipment, the structure is very simple, so the maintenance is also very convenient. The colloid mill is suitable for materials with higher viscosity and larger particles. The working principle of the colloid mill is that the motor drives the rotor and the stator to rotate at a relatively high speed. When the processed material passes through the gap between the stator and the rotating teeth, it is subjected to strong shearing force, frictional force, high-frequency vibration and other physical effects. The material is effectively emulsified, dispersed and crushed to achieve the effect of superfine crushing and emulsification of the material.

The emulsifier is to form uniform oil-water phase or water-oil phase small particles through high pressure and high-speed shearing of oil, water, emulsifier and other liquid materials. Generally used for cosmetic pharmaceutical cream production, food flavor dressing production, chemical industry, etc. which include oil phase material, water, emulsifier and other components which must be emulsified. The principle of the emulsifier is that the material is sheared, compressed, and folded by the mixing blade to mix and flow down to the lower homogenizer. The material passes through the high-speed rotating homogenizer rotor and stator to produce strong shearing. A series of processes such as, impact and turbulence are quickly broken into particles. Because the emulsification pot is in a vacuum state, the material will not generate bubbles during the mixing process.
