FBF Italia is a company that projects and manufactures homogenizers, ultra high pressure homogenizers, laboratory homogenizers, and positive displacement pumps. The company was established in 1987, allowing for many years of experience. FBF Italia possesses a capillary commercial/assistance network in Italy as well as all over the world. The total production has now achieved the 5.000 units; the actual production is around 220-230 machines per year.
FBF Italia values it’s relationships with their customers. After selling a machine, their first-class technical assistance network will provide you with all the answers. Beit start-up or maintenance of the machine, their highly qualified and expert technicians are always available to provide you with assistance.
Serving more than 40 countries around the world, FBF Italia’s agents intervene directly on site; regardless of location. Their mission is to provide high quality machines for the food, chemical and pharmaceutical industry while also providing assistance along the way to ensure optimal results.
Homogenization is often necessary to mix one or more substances within a liquid. It allows for the micronization and scattering of the particles suspended in the fluid, so that the product can become highly stable, no matter the following treatments and stockings it may undergo.
The main phases are as follow:
The product arrives to the homogenizing valve at a low speed, high pressure (this is caused by a little gap between the passing head and the collision head). During the passage, the product is subject to numerous forces which cause the particles to begin micronization; a violent acceleration followed by an immediate deceleration that produces cavitation, which results in the globules exploding. Collision cutting strengths are derived from the laminar passage between the homogenizing valve surfaces and the following impact with the collision ring.
The homogenizing phase can be carried out using a single homogenizing valve (suitable for scatter treatment), or a double homogenizing valve (suggested when you have to use emulsions and for controlling viscosity whenever requested). All homogenizing valve models are equipped with specific oleo pneumatic units, to ensure simple and accurate functioning.
The FBF Italia homogenizers are in conformity with CE regulation and are available with capacities from 50 to 50.000 LPH, with homogenizing pressure till 2.000 bar. View the full selection of homogenizers here.
