Fluid processor designed for clean room production

A new fluid processor for clean room production areas, provides an
alternative to the more expensive high-pressure fluid processors or
traditional homogenizers, its manufacturer claims.

Microfluidics said its Split System Microfluidizer Processor M-700 series is is designed so that its power unit is separated from the processing end of the business. The design allows manufacturers to keep the electric motor, cooling fan, hydraulic oil reservoir and cooling system out of the clean room area. The power unit supplies the processing unit end through interconnecting pneumatic and hydraulic lines.

"By separating the processing module, users no longer need to worry about atmospheric conditions, contamination, space issues and hazardous environments within the processing area,"​ the company stated. "Additionally, audible noise levels are well below OSHA limits, thus eliminating the need for operators to wear cumbersome and awkward hearing protection."

The company's Split System offers the same features, options and accessories as its standard integral models. It is capable of producing flow rates anywhere from two gallons per minute (GPM) at 40,000 psi to more than ten GPM at 5,000 psi in batch or continuous mode.

A dual synchronous intensifier pumping system helps keep the product flowing at high velocities and near constant pressure through the fixed geometry interaction chamber. This resulting in shear forces intense enough to reduce particles and droplets to sub-micron sizes with narrow and uniform distribution, usually in a single pass, the company claimed.

Processors can also use the machine for the uniform deagglomeration, dispersing and distributing particles to create very stable emulsions and solids-in-liquid suspensions.

The M-700 Series comes with an optional automated feature that cleans the system between batches or before storage. Because the interaction chamber employs no moving parts, no disassembly is required for cleaning.
