The method of operation of high-pressure homogenization

A pressurised product is subjected to turbulent and laminar forces in a very narrow ring-shaped gap.

In this process, fat globules or agglomerates are broken up and evenly distributed.

This physical energy input results in stability, colour intensity, flavour, consistency and a long shelf life, thereby reducing the use of stabilisers.

Versions and options

Product diversity requires variable technology

The product characteristics make it necessary to carefully select suitable materials and generate the right design. The components used by HST were developed with practical application in mind and can be modified depending on the specific application.

Homogenizer valves

All values supplied by HST are highly efficient and service-friendly, and they have low-noise levels. A choice of valve materials is available, e.g. high-tensile stainless steel and sintered materials, to homogenize a wide range of different products.

We stock PLUG, PILOTED and energy-saving Multigap valves for our HST homogenizers.

Piston versions

The materials used on our pistons can be chosen to match the particular product characteristics. We stock standard pistons, chrome-plated pistons, ceramic pistons and pistons with a special HST coating. Ask us about our special HST coating system which greatly extends service life.

HST packing system

The new HST packing system greatly extends service life. Ask us about our special HST system.

Aseptic design

Aseptic homogenizing technology, i.e. homogenizing after heat treatment, is often used to process UHT or sterile products, and you can significantly increase creaming stability. HST homogenizers are available as septic or aseptic versions.
