Due to the worldwide outbreak and spreading of the virus, our emulsifying mixers / homogenizing mixers are widely delivery to all over the world to help hand sanitizer / cream / gel / liquid soap /body/hand lotion / detergent manufactures to speed up their production. More and more new buyers want to produce their own brand hand sanitizers useing our emulsifying mixer.  Thus, the world emuslifying has been mentioned many times. 

What is emulsifying?

We can see the definitation of emulsify on dictionaries:

| to convert (two or more immiscible liquids) into an emulsion

| to become homogenized

| to blend (diverse elements) into a mixture that is the same throughout

| to make uniform in structure or composition throughout 

| to reduce to small particles of uniform size and distribute evenly usually in a liquid

| to reduce the particles of so that they are uniformly small and evenly distributed

| to break up the fat globules of (milk) into very fine particles

... ...

If two liquids emulsify or are emulsified, they combine and become a smooth mixture.

To be brief, we can see that emulsifying is to mix two or more immiscible phase especially oil and water / powder together under high mixing speed to get a new mixture. we call this new mixture emulsion. and call the emulsion making tools emulsifying mixer.

Daily chemical such as toothpaste, shampoo, hand sanitizer, liquid soap, detergent, cosmetic products like sun cream, hand lotion, numerous medical ointments, syrup, daily food like milk, mayonnaise, and dressings are emulsions. 

The emulsifying process can be visualized by looking at mixing water with oil, or fat. How do you mix oil and water? Even after intensive stirring for a long period of time, the oil swims at the water's surface once again after short period. Result will be totally different if we use emulsifying mixer (homogenizer) to mix water with oil,

rotor & stator

Emulsions are usually stabilized by emulsifiers such as surfactant / surface active agent / tensides, which are mixed into one of the two phases before emulsifying. Emulsifiers are one-part water-loving (hydrophilic) and one-part fat-loving (lipophilic). One side of the emulsifier molecule bonds with water and the other one with oil. In this manner, emulsifiers stabilize the produced droplets and therefore counteract a segregation of the emulsion.

Emulsifying mixers (emulsifying homopgenizer / homogenizing mixer) offered by Ranking Machinery are ideal for the mixing of different kinds of emulsions.

If you are going to produce hand sanitizer, liquid soap or any body cream, talk to our sales manager to get a suitable emulsifying mixer please.
