Silverson Homogenizer vs Chinese eBay homogenizer

thinking about selling my silverson Homogenizer to raise capital for a homogenizer of eBay.. 
Anyone have experience with the Chinese homogenizers?

  • You have to be sure of the company before buying - it really is buyer beware in China unless you have someone on the ground who knows what they are doing and the best companies to deal with. There is rarely any come back if there is a problem.

    A company I worked for bought an in-line homogeniser for light work (incorporationg aloe powder into water), in which there was a hopper to pour the powder into. It didn't do the job. The only way they could get it to work was to put another pump in-line to pump the liquid through the homogeniser first - which defeated the point of buying one in the first place.

    The other thing to watch out for is the bolts - they tend to be mild steel and will shear off quickly. Best thing to do is replace all bolts beofre you start using it.


  • I’d like to know as well. I have a Silverson too (L4RT) that I’m about ready to give to a good home. Always sounds like it’s on its last leg...

    Thankyou for that, but I'm interested in the basic homogenizer, for example: 
    https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F382053593170

    Ebay /paypal should gurantee.. 

    However I'm wondering if they're good enough to make creams?
