Homogenization is the mixture of several components to form a uniform phase. It is probably the most important task of stirring technology. A good stirring result is achieved when the same concentration of the individual components is present at every location in the container.

Homogenization is a process that can be found in many industries:
In the pharmaceutical industry in particular, it is important to reliably obtain homogeneous mixtures. Medicines must have the same mixture of contents even in the smallest amount.

In the food industry, homogenized milk is certainly the best-known product example. Here the fat components have to be crushed and distributed evenly. But the process of homogenising is also used in chocolate production, the production of flavors or beverages.

In the cosmetics industry, the quality of the products depends largely on a reliable homogenization process. In the case of textures such as creams, make-up or lipsticks, the content must be homogenized to a high quality for purely visual reasons and because of the intended use.

In the chemical industry, the predominant examples of homogenisation are the manufacture of lacquers, paints, fillers, lubricants or adhesives.

Depending on the area of ​​application, the agitators used are designed differently in terms of power, dimensions and component selection. The size of the stirring tank, the viscosity of the ingredients and the possible existence of a special environment (ATEX, clean room, hygiene regulations) are all taken into account.
