I did a search through the forum and haven't had a ton of luck thus far, but I was hoping for some help on this issue.
We have a stearic acid - triethanolamine in situ emulsion which usually has no issues when scaled to 160 kg.
However, we used a much larger Silverson to produce this batch and have a super thick, almost curdled looking cream which normally would be thinner, almost lotion-thin. This is body butter level thick. It was mixed for a very long time and still was retaining heat the next day.
I would assume too much heat and too much mixing would thin this out?? Thank you for any help!
