Global process solutions enterprise, SPX Flow, has launched two new homogeniser models.
The latest additions to the homogeniser portfolio are designed to deliver powerful performance and make operation and maintenance easier for a wide range of industries, including dairy, food, beverage, pharmaceuticals, and personal care.
Global project manager, dispersion products at SPX Flow, Con O’Driscoll, says the new models have been designed around less maintenance, ease of serviceability, minimum downtime and enhanced performance.
“The technological advances in our homogeniser solutions promote product stability, consistency and viscosity that can lead to a more uniform product and extended shelf life.”
The 57T and 77T homogenisers use a three-plunger reciprocating pump and incorporate a durable slow speed power end that, paired with the low and compact design, improves performance and reliability.
The new models are more ergonomic with a single point of control and direct visibility to all internal and external indicators. The homogenisers’ new design offers easy access to all service areas, saving time and money by simplifying inspection and reducing maintenance.
Modular electrical controls allow for easy installation and an optional programmable logic computer (PLC) operator control cabinet is available to automate and integrate the controls as well as providing alarm monitoring.
In addition to the standard specification, users may select several options for the homogenisers, creating a solution that fits their needs. These optional modules include various enhanced liquid end block designs, homogenising valve materials, control panels, vibration sensors and explosion-proof designs.
The new homogenisers build on SPX Flow’s experience and research and development from its innovation centres, while understanding the needs of modern processing plants.
“While dairy is still a key market for homogenisers, we are seeing growth in other sectors looking for a more consistent product, including lubricants, cosmetics and biotechnology,” says O’Driscoll.
“We are confident that the new range will enable more markets to benefit from the value homogenisation can bring to their products.
