  • HC 2000 / 5000 / 8000
    Sanitary Standard, Lightweight, Versatile Easy-to-Use Homogenizers

    HC Series of Microfluidizer® Laboratory Homogenizers

    The 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 Works

The 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 Uses

The HC series of lab homogenizers is recommended for:

  • Emulsions
  • Particle Dispersions
  • Liposomes
  • Cell Disruption
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Cosmetics
  • Food and Beverage Products
