HC 2000 / 5000 / 8000Sanitary Standard, Lightweight, Versatile Easy-to-Use HomogenizersHC Series of Microfluidizer Laboratory HomogenizersThe lightweight, easy-to-use HC air-driven homogenizers are suitable for batch and continuous flow processing. The series produces up to 8,000 psi with standard lab air, for premium results at an affordable cost. HC machines are ideal for precisely controlled, higher volume applications, such as mammalian cell disruption and low shear emulsions.HOW IT WORKSThe HC pneumatic homogenizers combine high flow with high-pressure, fixed-geometry homogenizer modules that impart high shear rates to product formulations. Because every milliliter of your product experiences the same processing, the results include uniform particle and droplet size reduction, deagglomeration and high-yield cell disruption.RECOMMENDED USESThe HC series of lab homogenizers is recommended for:EmulsionsParticle DispersionsLiposomesCell DisruptionPharmaceuticalsCosmeticsFood and Beverage ProductsUNIQUE BENEFITSThe HC portable benchtop laboratory homogenizers:Operate at pressures to 2,000 psi (HC-2000), 5,000 psi (HC-5000), 8,000 psi (HC-8000)Handle sample sizes of 100 ml (HC-2000/HC-5000) or 250 ml (HC-8000) to continuous processing up to 120 liter/hourContain a unique, wear-resistant homogenizer module ? no moving partsFeature a durable plunger seal that offers a wide compatibility range and extended seal lifeAre air driven and explosion-proofProduce a maximum process steam temperature of 165?F (75?C)STANDARD FEATURESSmall footprint for bench or under-hood useFlow rates to 2,000 ml/min (HC-2000), 950 ml/min (HC-5000), 1,000 ml/min (HC-8000)In-line cleaning of high-pressure tubingMaterials of construction for wetted surfaces include: 315 stainless steel, Hastelloy C, Kynar, PEEK, UHMWPE, Teflon, Ceramic and VitonPressure gauge (non-sanitary type)OPTIONAL FEATURESCooling coilSanitary flush diaphragm pressure transducer with microprocessor-based, digital display indicatorAutoclavable air motor400 ml manual pressure feed reservoirPressurized feed tankSelection of homogenizer modules for normal or high-viscosity processing
