PRO Scientific deflector heads are specifically designed to enhance the homogenization of larger volume and higher viscosity materials such as creams, lotions, oils, and gels. They are used regularly in the manufacture of cosmetics, paints, oils, and other products which have a viscosity significantly higher than that of water.
The deflector head design creates vertical movement of heavy materials which would otherwise stand stagnant, and promotes increased flow on larger volume samples, as diagrammed below.
When processing viscous materials, such as creams and lotions, the PRO deflector head forces materials from the generator tip up its tapered walls, creating increased vertical movement of the entire sample. The material is then repeatedly cycled back down to the bottom of the container and up through the deflector head until a homogenous mixture is achieved.
PRO deflector heads mount easily on PRO generator probes. Deflector heads are available in acetyl resin or stainless steel and fit generator probes 20mm in diameter and larger.
Is there a minimum recommended volume for use of a deflector head?
As a general guideline PRO recommends using deflector heads with samples of approximately 1 liter or more. As you can see in the video in the overview, using a bit less is okay, especially with highly viscous samples.PRO Scientific 2015-04-28
