Silverson Machines are leaders in the design and manufacture of high speed, high shear mixing equipment. These mixers are ideal for overcoming the challenges faced by many manufacturers in the cosmetics industry - such as reducing production times, improving process hygiene, faster powder/liquid mixing, producing stable emulsions, dissolving powders, disintegrating solids, blending liquids of different viscosities, dispersing and hydrating gums, thickeners and stabilisers and diluting high active surfactants
Having been in business for over 75 years, Silverson have been helping customers in the cosmetics industry since the beginning. With our vast knowledge and experience we’ve helped cosmetic manufacturers get the best out of their raw materials, achieve full yield of thickening agents, improve product quality and dramatically reduce process times. Owing to the longevity and quality of Silverson mixing equipment, one cosmetics customer has been using their Silverson Batch mixers to reduce the particle size of a jelly product made from agar, for use in a cosmetic cream since 1992!
Another global cosmetic company have a line of over 10 Silverson Batch mixers for their extensive product range which use a wide variety of ingredients and range in viscosity from viscous creams to low viscosity body washes, so their mixers needed to be versatile and mobile so they could be used on a number of different vessels. The Batch mixers are being used for applications including aroma/flavour emulsions, disintegrating fruits and vegetables, dissolving chocolate, dispersing gums and breaking down soap noodles among many others.
A UK based cosmetics company was able to reduce their mixing times by more than half after switching from in-tank agitators to a Silverson In-Line mixer. Using the in-tank agitators, they needed a separate pump to discharge the vessel. Silverson In-Line mixers can be used for both mixing and discharging the vessel, resulting in a much faster processing time, reduced cleaning requirements, and downtime.
Other customers, such as a company is Asia, have specific Silverson mixers are standard for their SLES dispersion.
Silverson Machines are trusted by many cosmetics companies around the world and offer many advantages over traditional mixing equipment, including:
- Reduced mixing times
- Agglomerate-free dispersions
- Stable emulsions – 2 – 5µm droplet size typically achievable
- Minimised aeration
- Rapid incorporation and wetting out of powders.
- Maximised yield of raw materials as thickening agents are fully hydrated and other ingredients fully dispersed
- Greatly improved product quality, consistency and stability.
- Repeatability and batch-to-batch consistency
- Interchangeable workheads allowing one machine to do the job of many, saving on space and capital expenditure
Silverson also offers the largest capacity range from a single manufacturer, from 1ml up to 30,000 litres, as well as mixers for processing high viscosity products such as creams and lotions – without the need for an auxiliary pump.
For applications from manufacturing shampoos and conditioners, lotions and creams, nail varnishes, and liquid soaps, to the dispersion of ingredients such as SLES, Carbopol, Xanthan gum and other rheology modifiers, Silverson has a mixing solution for you.
