According to relevant customers and our industry experience, there is a common difficulty in silicone oil emulsification, that is, the phenomenon that silicone oil is emulsified by some emulsifying mixer and often reverses to generate water and oil stratification. Where is the problem and what is better to prevent this from happening and make the properties of emulsified silicone oil more stable?
Let us understand several factors that affect the emulsification of silicone oil:
1. Process formula. The process formula has a great influence on the emulsification effect of silicone oil. The proportion of its raw materials, the order of the raw materials, and the heating, homogenization, and stirring time, all determine the final emulsification effect.
2. Emulsifier. There are different types of emulsifiers, and they have different effects on the degree of changing the product structure and on the interfacial tension and the energy required to form an emulsion.
3. Emulsifying mixer. Different emulsification equipment has different structure designs, different shear force, and rotation speed, which greatly affects its emulsification effect.
Wuxi YeKeey Automation Technology Co., Ltd. has rich practical experience in industrial mixing in various fields and is also trusted and praised by companies in various industries. For each customer’s needs, Wuxi YeKeey is able to provide customers with constructive solutions based on their rich industry experience. For example: what kind of equipment is needed to emulsify silicone oil, and what aspects should be paid attention to when designing. The specific emulsification plan YeKeey will make specific customization according to each customer’s process.
For silicone oil emulsification, the ZJR series vacuum emulsifier is recommended. It is designed with German emulsification technology and has a stator rotor structure homogenizer. Under the high-speed drive of the motor, the silicone oil moves at high speed in the narrow gap between the rotor and the stator, forming turbulent flow, and the material is more affected. The combined action of strong hydraulic shear, centrifugal extrusion, high-speed cutting, impact, and grinding can achieve the effect of dispersion, emulsification, and crushing. The processed material itself and the physical properties and the emulsification time of the material in the emulsifying tank determine the particle size distribution range and the effect of homogenization and refinement. The bottom outlet of the emulsification tank is equipped with a bottom valve for discharging and the design of pot dumping and discharging, which meets the production requirements. The mature mechanical design makes the machine work more stable and easy to clean.
Outstanding features in the design
① The replaceable processing module realizes multiple functions such as mixing, dispersing, homogenizing, dispersing, suspending, and mixing of liquid and powder.
②Small test to pilot test, pilot test to production, no need to re-adjust the process parameters.
