The colloid mill is useful for milling , dispersing, homogenizing and breaking down of agglomerates in the manufacture of food pastes, emulsions, coatings, ointments, creams, pulps, grease etc etc. The main function of the colloid mill is to ensure a breakdown of agglomerates or in the case of emulsions to produce droplets of fine size around 1 micron . The material to be processed is fed by gravity to the hopper or pumped so as to pass between the rotor & stator elements where it is subjected to high shearing & hydraulic forces. Material is discharged through a hopper whereby it can be recirculated for a second pass. For materials having higher solid & fibre contents conical grooved discs are preferred. Cooling & heating jacket arrangements are provided as a standard feature on both these mills.
