Or is it that you can just layer one emulsion on top of another, providing you chill the emulsion stack very soon afterwards that the layers remain separate before mixing has a chance to occur?
My guess is it's all about getting the head design and flow rate right so that you achieve laminar flow (i.e. no turbulence.)
Another day goes under; a little bourbon will take the strain...
