Used Homogenizers

What is Homogenization?

Homogenization is the process of reducing a substance to extremely small particles and uniformly distributing it through a fluid, creating a mixture that is consistent throughout. This process is accomplished using a piece of industrial equipment called a homogenizer and is commonly applied during the processing of milk. The homogenizer forces the milk through small openings under high pressure, breaking up the fat molecules in the milk which prevents the molecules from rising to the top and forming a layer of cream. This also gives milk a whiter appearance, a smoother texture, and a richer flavor. The processing of milk so that the cream does not separate is different from pasteurization, which is the heating of milk to kill bacteria.

There are several other food and beverage products that benefit from homogenization, including:

  • Soft drinks
  • Fruit juices
  • Soups
  • Salad dressings
  • Mayonnaise
  • Peanut butter
  • Cream cheese
  • Ice cream

Just like with milk-based products, homogenization improves the consistency, taste, viscosity, and appearance of these food products. Homogenizers also help with food preservation and extending the shelf life of products. Similar processes are also applied in the manufacturing of some pharmaceutical and cosmetic products.

Why Buy a Used Homogenizer?

Milk homogenizers are very common pieces of equipment for the average dairy operation and are great for both small-scale and large-scale dairy producers. Homogenization gives milk a longer shelf life, which is especially beneficial for big farms as they can transport shipments farther distances to retailers. They are also very beneficial in the processing of other types of food and beverages and have applications in several other industries. They tend to have long lifespans and maintain a high efficiency throughout, so buying used can save you and your business a lot of money.
