In the industrial production of fluid mixing, most of the powder-liquid, solid-liquid, and liquid-liquid mixing and agitation requires multiple processing of mechanical equipment to meet the product requirements. These processing procedures often include heating, dissolving, dispersing, stirring, homogenizing, emulsifying, sterilizing, cooling, and so on. Except for some cold-processed products, most products require heating during the mixing and stirring process.
The heating process is often a basic process step for the product to achieve fineness, uniformity, good dispersibility, and product stability… these standards. Thermal processing products can be better sheared, homogenized, and emulsified after heating. The quality reaches a better state. Today we come to understand how the heating process is carried out of the emulsifying mixer?
What are the heating methods of the emulsifying mixer?
1. Electric heating method
Among the heating methods of the emulsifying mixer, electric heating is a common heating method. The electric heating method is usually to heat the medium in the emulsification tank interlayer: water or heat transfer oil through the electric heating rod installed in the emulsification tank. After the medium is heated, the heat is transferred to the material in the emulsification tank.
Yekeey electric heating emulsifier has a fast heat transfer speed, and at the same time, it uses a thermocouple to measure the temperature and connect it with a temperature controller to measure and control the temperature. The temperature control is adjustable and convenient; the temperature measurement is accurate. This heating method is convenient, hygienic, economical, safe, and has a long heat preservation time.
2. Steam heating method
In some large-scale emulsifying mixers, or when there are requirements for temperature or other aspects in the process, steam heating is often used to heat the material. This heating method usually requires the customer to have a steam source, such as an industrial boiler. If there is no steam source, additional steam generator equipment is required to generate steam in advance through electric heating for reuse. This heating method has fast heating speed, convenient use, convenient cooling, and can also be processed by steam sterilization.
However, because this heating method generates pressure on the emulsification pot of the high-shear vacuum homogenizing emulsifier, it is often necessary to heat the pot with steam into the pressure vessel through an enterprise with a pressure vessel license to ensure production safety. Therefore, this heating method is relatively expensive.
In the production process of some products, standard electric heating and steam heating cannot meet the temperature requirements, and external heating equipment, such as external mold temperature controllers, chillers, and other auxiliary equipment can also be selected. To sum up, generally speaking, the electric heating emulsifying mixer is more economical and the heating effect is guaranteed. From the perspective of cost, the electric heating method is more practical, so the scope of use is wider. The steam heating emulsifying mixer is suitable for large-scale production or special process requirements. In the production of products in some industries, especially in the pharmaceutical industry where steam sterilization is required, the application of steam heating is also common.
