What happens at homogenizing processes?
By homogenizing, different fluids, which are normally not soluble in each other, are dissolved to a homogeneous, single phase solution. To succeed in this process, the droplet size in the fluid has to be minimized to a small and constant diameter. This happens by using high pressure on the liquids. The substance passes through a high pressure pump, is compressed, and afterwards stress‐relieved by a homogenizing valve. In this way, solutions with the desired properties are formed.
For the pharma and biotech industry, homogenization is very important, because even the smallest quantities of a medication have to contain the same amount of the active pharmaceutical ingredient. By homogenizing a fluid, an absolute consistent blending can be achieved.
