Company Profile

AVESTIN manufactures process machinery for the food, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. We manufacture and sell the EmulsiFlex™ line of high pressure homogenizers, filters and extruders. Applications for this equipment include the prepa- ration of homogenate, emulsions, dispersions, liposomes, cell rupture and sterile filtration. Instruments for volumes from 7ml batches up to production capacities are available. Some models allow the unique combination of high pressure homogeni- zation with continuous filtration/extrusions. Homogenization pressure up to 30,000psi/207 MPa can be achieved. All EmulsiFlex™ instruments are SIP-sterilisable and autoclavable. We also manufacture the LiposoFast™ line of liposome extruders. These instruments pass a lipid suspension back and forth through a controlled pore diameter membrane. Volumes of 0.2ml to 100ml can be processed with these instruments, with the option of scaling up to an EmulsiFlex™ unit for larger amounts. The LiposoFast™ line is also autoclavable.
