The discontinuous phase is added gradually into the recirculating stream at a relatively low pump speed until the phase addition is complete, at which point the emulsion is homogenized at a pump speed of approximately 5,000 RPM.
Addition of a cheaper though more permeable discontinuous phase may be desirable to reduce the overall cost of the system without compromising too much of the barrier property.
