Mixing of miscible liquids

A mixture of two liquids is said to be miscible when the state of this mixture is perfectly homogeneous, as opposed to an emulsion which is produced by mixing two immiscible phases. It is therefore impossible to distinguish one liquid from the other, since the agitation of the two liquids results in only one phase and no particles are suspended.

What type of material should be used to obtain a mixture of two liquids that are perfectly homogeneous with each other?

The agitation caused by a magnetic stirrer homogenizing tank bottom AGM-FC is a material suitable for mixing liquids. Although a forerunner in the field of agitation, this magnetic drive unit is still evolving and still meets industrial needs.

The profiled propeller with thin blades Ax1, in the course of the process, thanks to the suction flow, creates a boiling on the surface of the liquid. The blowing flow of this propeller creates a vortex.  These two instructions for the same material allow the mixing of miscible liquids. However, it is necessary to take into account the problem linked to the risk of gas being introduced into the mixture by the creation of the vortex.

The profiled marine propeller with moulded blades has been specifically designed for live products. The construction of the marine propeller was initiated for a delicate shear and adapted to mixtures that can be very sensitive, therefore adapted to the specific constraints of the biotechnology field.

What are the fields of application for a mixture of two miscible liquids?

In the cosmetics industry, this technique is used so that no deposit appears on the bottom of the bottle of a body milk, lotion or shampoo, among others. Also, true solutions are dispersions of mutually miscible liquids for the manufacture of floral waters, for example.

It is used in fine chemistry to obtain chemical reactions or thermal transfers.

Homogenizations can also be obtained by mixing two miscible liquids in the food industry for the manufacture of beverages.
