Production Process Value

If your pharmaceutical, food, chemical or personal care & cosmetics application doesn’t require the highest energy levels of a dedicated high-pressure homogenizer or media mill, the Quadro® HV-Emulsifier and Wet Mill offers better process value. The Quadro® HV series provides more process shear energy than a conventional rotor-stator mill, significantly lowering capital costs compared to homogenizers or media mills, and is ideally suited for processing submicron emulsions or suspension micronization.

Versatility

Available in two configurations, the Quadro® HV can be optimized for homogenizing or wet milling depending on the application, or optional tooling can be kept on hand for one machine to allow flexible process changeovers. Typical applications include submicron emulsions (ophthalmic, functional foods, etc.), drug suspensions or API milling, topical formulations (pharmaceutical, cosmetics, personal care) and chemical applications (wood stains, agricultural products, etc.).

    • Higher Shear EnergyThe Quadro® HV produces more than 55x the high shear energy of a conventional rotor-stator mill, resulting in finer size reduction and less processing time
    • Cost SavingsLower capital investment than alternative technologies; in some cases, the HV does in one machine what previously required more than one piece of equipment
    • Production Capacity & Efficiency ImprovementWhen used for inline continuous operations, the HV offers a significant increase in production capacity with a compact footprint that can easily retrofit into existing facilities
    • Less Maintenance RequiredReliable and robust machine design with an easy-to-clean sanitary construction
    • Time SavingsReduced process time with single-pass on-target results
