The homogenization process is a mechanical procedure suitable for preserving the quality of the product intact over time, homogenization delays the negative effects of the fluid alteration process such as aggregation, coagulation and sedimentation of particles.
The main effect in GEA’s homogenization process therefore consists in the decomposition of liquid cells into very small parts that can take less space and thus making the product more homogeneous, stable and durable.
Furthermore, the combined use of the high dynamic pressure and homogenizing valves, designed by our technical staff based on different applications, lets you reduce the particles to the lowest possible pressure, and so allowing for significant energy savings.
