Rotor / Stator Homogenizers

Kinematica’s batch and inline homogenizers / dispersers achieve fully reproducible results for emulsions, dispersions or cell disruption from lab- and pilot-scale to full-scale production. These homogenizers provide the desired mean particle size and uniform distribution according to the user’s requirements. The field of application is wide, including pharmaceutical, chemical, cosmetics, food and life science.

Kinematica invented the Rotor – Stator principle which is widely used in homogenizing systems. Have a look how it works here.

POLYTRON® laboratory line
Volumes: from 0.01 to 30'000 ml
Stator diameter: from 3 to 60 mm
Speed range: up to 30'000 rpm
Smooth start function, autoclavable dispersing aggregates

The POLYTRON® line systems produce fine dispersion, emulsion and homogenization, offering efficient disruption of the systems, reproducibility of the results and simple procedures.
Thanks to the broad range of dispersing aggregates, the POLYTRON systems are suitable for various laboratory application, including disruption of animal and human tissues, sample preparation for RNA and DNA extraction, disruption of fruits and vegetables samples, sample preparation in the waste water industry, pills disruption for content analysis in the pharma industry as well as making emulsions from oil and water. Various models are available, from handheld dispersers to powerful stand-dispersers.

MEGATRON® laboratory line
Throughput: up to approx. 11 l per min
Pressure: up to 6 bar (higher pressures on request)
Temperature: up to 90 °C
Speed range: up to 30'000 rpm (autoclavable version up to 18'000 rpm)

When testing and optimizing formulas, high process safety is paramount. The MT3100 S2 enables processing of complex material systems with minimal loss of mass and minimal energy, leading to efficient and replicable results.

This system allows realizing your ideas under as realistic conditions as possible in small, economic quantities. During the subsequent scale-up process, the results can be replicated with larger Kinematica machines.

Depending on the material’s system, the components bind into the finest emulsions or suspensions with droplet or particle sizes down to a few microns. These results are achieved by the machine’s high speed and the resulting peripheral tip speeds as well as precise rotor / stator geometry. More information

POLYTRON® pilot plant and production line
Batch size: from 30 to 40’000 ml
Stator diameter: up to 350 mm
Speed range: up to 24'000 rpm

Kinematica’s POLYTRON® batch series for pilot plant and production is ideal for applications up to 40 resp. 50 liters and for scale ups from research and development to pilot plant or small production scale processes. These units offer high versatility in the size and numbers of aggregates to be used, for laboratory as well as for pilot plant and small production applications. This permits the direct comparison of results between the smaller and larger aggregates, facilitating the scale up decision.

Available models:
POLYTRON PT 45-80 GT sample amount 0,1 – 30 000 ml
POLYTRON PT 6100D sample amount 0,1 – 30 000 ml
POLYTRON PT 7100 sample amount 200 ml – 40 000 ml
POLYTRON PT-D 36-60 sample amount 0.10 ml – 50 000 ml More information
