Ginhong is a hand sanitizer mixer and making machine for gel, liquid & foam manufacturer in China, our mixers are widely used to manufacturing different hand sanitizers. Looking for a hand sanitizer high-shear batch mixer for sale from an experienced industrial mixer manufacturer? Ginhong might be your answer. Check out our specialized mixing equipment!
In response to the Covid-19 hand sanitizer shortage, many companies have joined the pool of manufacturers retooling production lines. Re-calibrating and customizing equipment to make sanitizing gels to fit FDA regulations may be more costly than just buying a high-quality hand sanitizer mixer. After all, hand sanitizer batch manufacturing is not as easy as making homemade sanitizers, where you only need to mix ingredients with a bowl and spatula.
So what are the manufacturing issues?
If you’re one of the companies wanting to aid the supply shortage of these antibacterial products, you need to have the PROPER MIXING EQUIPMENT.
Ginhong’s Hand Sanitizer Mixer is specially designed, manufactured and assembled to mix consistent batches of antibacterial gels and liquids to fight against Covid-19. We offer a variety of industrial mixer options and sizes to fit your ingredient specifications and your budget.
Top-Quality, Consistent Batch-to-Batch Hand Gel Mixture
At Ginhong, we make sure customers find the right type of mixer to completely homogenize, disintegrate and blend products for maximizing efficiencies and for higher ROI.
Robust Gel Mixing Equipment to Ramp Up Production & Meet Demand
We size your hand sanitizer mixer appropriately to match the optimum speed, agitator power, temperature and capacity with the properties of its ingredients. With highly robust mixing equipment such as Ginhong’s, you can surely meet the hand sanitizer demand in a jiffy!
Ginhong’s High Shear Mixer is our premium high energy mixer for complete homogenization of gels, creams and viscous solutions. It is made up of a precision-made workhead (rotor and stator), a lifting system, portable stand and a motor and transmission mount. It has an inverter to conveniently adjust the rotation speed. It’s automatic hydraulic/pneumatic lifting mechanism makes it easy for operators to empty or fill the vessel.
We offer our high shear batch mixers for capacities ranging from 100 to 300L to make bulk hand sanitizer mixtures.
Our Multi-Shaft Mixer is equipped with two or more independently driven agitators driven by variable speed motors. It delivers high shear mixing, emulsification and homogenization for viscous gels. This can be for ingredients with over a hundred thousand centipoises. It has an anchor agitator with Teflon scraper to remove materials from the walls to promote clean mixing and high heat transfer rates.
You can choose a vacuum-filled closed system to help in minimizing aeration and ultimately, your costs. Vacuum-filled multi shaft mixers can also prevent growth of microbes in alcohols and beverages.
To manufacture an effective and good quality hand sanitiser gel, spray, liquid or foam solution, the FDA and WHO released guidelines to be followed. These include compounding procedures for alcohol-based hand sanitizer to meet pharmaceutical standards.
The key to making foam hand sanitizer used in hospitals or for routine consumer use is to make it with at least 60% v/v alcohol. This can inactivate Covid-19 or other germs on the hands when applied correctly.
However, there are also formulations which are non-alcohol. Non-alcohol hand sanitizers, on the other hand, cannot kill Coronavirus.
Basic ingredients of hand sanitizers may include an active ingredient, which is alcohol or non-alcohol ingredient. Additional ingredients include glycerol, and hydrogen peroxide.
The WHO recommends alcohol-based formulations as it is effective, tolerable and cost-effective for providing bulk hand rubs for healthcare settings. Sanitizing ingredients may be Ethyl or Isopropyl alcohol at very high concentrations of about 96%. When blended with water and other ingredients, the final alcohol content should be between 60 to 90%.
But in general, the formulation can vary with different ingredients. Here are the basic ingredients for non-alcohol and alcohol-based hand sanitizers.
Here’s an example of an alcohol-based herbal hand sanitizer formulation from Research Gate.
|Ethyl Alcohol/Isopropyl Alcohol||10.95× 10-4 Pa-s||Active ingredient/antibacterial||62%|
|Water||7.98 × 10-4 Pa-s||Solvent||30%|
|Neem leaves extract||-||Antimicrobial||1%|
|Triethanolamine||Miscible in water||Solubilizing agent; to prevent skin irritation||0.7%|
|Carbopol (Carbomer)||40-60 Pa-s||Thickening agent to make gel or emulsion; for stabilizing the solution||0.5%|
Some formulations also add bitter tasting compounds to discourage people from drinking hand sanitizers. This is usually added to the alcohol as denaturants to make it taste bitter for children to eat.
|Benzalkonium Chloride||Antimicrobial agent/active ingredient||0.2|
|Surfactant||Cleaning and spreading agent||1|
|Thickener||Increase viscosity/define consistency||0.3|
|Bitter-tasting compound||To prevent people from consuming the product||0.12|
|Preservative||Preserve the life of hand sanitizer||0.1|
Hand Sanitizer Gel
Usually 75% Ethanol or Isopropyl solutions with a main ingredient of deionized water, alcohol, and gel moisturizer, emollient.
Foaming Hand Sanitizer
Composed of deionized/distilled water, surfactant, foaming agents, moisturizing agents, and disinfectants.
The different viscosities of the ingredients means the mixer would have to bear different physical properties of the materials. During the mixing process, there should be a powerful action in an industrial blender to achieve a uniform agglomerate-free and consistent batch-to-batch mixtures.
The mixing process is as follows:
When manufacturing hand sanitizers a number of problems may be encountered:
Ginhong’s High Shear Mixer and Multi Shaft Mixer are equipped with the latest components for seamlessly processing hand sanitizer ingredients. These robust industrial blenders have control panels, homogenizer, pneumatic lifting mechanism and motors. Stainless steel pipes, filters and valves can process the solution at a clean, and rust-free environment.
Ginhong’s Hand Sanitizer Mixer has a number of advantages:
