What is an emulsion? An emulsion is typically a combination of two or more liquids that do not want to mix together. The challenge is to make the emulston and prevent it from splitting. New emulsions are being developed for the 21st Century and the NBP007 is able to monitor the emlusification process.

Milling and dispersion
What is dispersion? Dispersion is typically the incorporation of a powder into a liquid such as pigment into resin for paint. The powder needs to be wetted evenly by the liquid, with any clumps of powder (agglomerates) broken apart to form a homogeneous product.
What is milling? Milling is the further reduction of particle size in a liquid to improve the quality of the product.

Reduce dispersion times
Understanding what happens during milling & dispersion is important. The NBP007 analyser can provide vital real time information. Contact us for a free demonstration
Low Fat Spread / margarine manufacture
Margarines and low fat spreads are typically manufactured from oils 80% and water 16% plus additives. A homoneniser is used to create a water in oil emulsion that will be the finished margarine. For reasons of produt quality the process needs to run close to the point where the emulsion is in danger of phase inversion at which point it becomes oil in water and the batch is ruined.
An NBP007 can be used to monitor the emulsion droplet size online in real time and can help the operator maintain the balance in the emulsion and generate an early alarm if emulsion phase inversion is in danger of occuring.
