If two or more immiscible liquids such as oil and water are present and you try to mix them together, this process is called emulsification. Normally, oil and water cannot be mixed. However, if you succeed in breaking the oil into extremely fine droplets (diameter 10 nm-0.1 mm), then the oil can be dispersed in the water. ... or vice versa the water in oil.

Normally, oil and water cannot be mixed. However, if the oil can be divided into extremely fine droplets (diameter 10 nm-0.1 mm), then the oil can be dispersed in the water. Such a mixture is all the more transparent the smaller the oil droplets are. Emulsifiers such as lecithins can be added to aid the mixing process. Emulsions can be stable or they can segregate. Cellulose ether or pectin may be added to counteract segregation. Emulsions are for example: Body lotions, sunscreen, milk, mayonnaise or lubricants. Emulsions are made with the help of high-speed liquid mixers. Sometimes it is difficult to wet a powder evenly with aqueous substances. This is made easier if the aqueous wetting liquid is converted into an emulsion beforehand. amixon® mixers are used to prepare dry and moist powders. amixon® powder mixers can distribute extremely small quantities of liquid substances homogeneously in the powder. Without agglomerates or lumps forming. - Emulsions must be prepared beforehand using high-speed rotating stirrers or colloid mills. They are liquid premixes.
