GMP homogenizing system
Manufacturers need production mixing equipment that is capable, flexible, and easy to maintain. Accurate mixing form a reliable, user friendly machine will give plant managers the peace of mind and worry free operation they need to focus on improving other areas of their process. A high quality piece of equipment allows for low maintenance, easy cleaning, enables the direct feed of solids and liquids, mixing and dispersing of the vessel contents, heating or cooling of the product, and processing under vacuum or under pressure.
A universal mixing system with precise, reproducible results and safe operation
The Master Plant homogenizing and emulsifying system from IKA was designed specifically to meet the production mixing needs of the pharmaceuticals industry but has also proven useful in the production of food, beverages, cosmetics, and chemicals. Several mixing heads are interchangeable depending on the process and desired results. Each mixing head can be heated or cooled to control product temperature simultaneous to the mixing process. Flexible PTFE scrapers move with the mixing head and keep product from adhering to the vessel walls. Products of up to 100.000 mPas viscosity can be processed. The GMP homogenizing systems can be fully discharged without the need for additional pumping and are available in capacities from 10 to 4.000 liters.
- Formation of lumps is avoided by feeding additives directly into the dispersion chamber
- CIP cleaning and complete plant sterilization using steam are possible
- Low maintenance requirements
- Exchangeable dispersing tools
- Agitator can be heated or cooled--reducing required process times for temperature control
