Quadro Ytron™ Jet Mixer Streamlines Body Wash Production
A large private label personal care manufacturer was looking for a solution to a bottleneck in their manufacturing process for a moisturizing body wash. Body Wash products can either be an oil-in-water or water-in-oil emulsion and consist of emollients, lubricants, emulsifying & thickening agents, fragrance, cleansing agents, preservatives, and nourishing agents such as vitamins. Some of the problems facing the manufacturer included long batch times and variable product quality. Therefore, on time/on-specification results were often lagging demand for this popular product.
To resolve these issues, the customer purchased two (2) Quadro Ytronn™ side entry Jet Mixers for their production vessels. The customer immediately realized a dramatic decrease in overall batch time from 8 hours to less than 3 hours. Additionally, the customer realized consistent viscosity and product quality throughout the batch and from batch-to-batch, with formulations up to 75,000 cps. The mixer installation also proved to be very cost effective with no gearbox or belt drive to maintain, and no wall scraper blades or internal wear components to service.
