‘Getting to know Thinky mixers’ - .PDF file.

The Thinky ARE-500 mixer from Intertronics is a high-performance industrial non-contact ‘planetary’ mixer that is suitable for all engineering compounds — liquids, pastes and powders.

The company claims that the ARE-500 mixes, disperses and degasses materials in seconds to minutes, in a sealed or lidless container such as a jar, beaker, syringe tube or cartridge using a non-contact mixing principle. This makes it possible to formulate compounds from very small amounts such as 0.5ml to large production scales up to a full 1.1kg, while mixing and removing bubbles simultaneously.

The Thinky ARE-500 conditioning mixer can be used for the mixing and/or bubble removal of epoxies, silicones, conductive pastes, medicines, laboratory or production chemicals and many other fragile or complex materials.

According to Intertronics, Thinky mixing and degassing has been found to be valuable for high viscosities, for materials with highly different densities or for mixing dry particles into liquids, while its non-invasive processing eliminates any risk of cross contamination between batches.

Key features and benefits

  • The system is suitable for production and enable up to 500ml or 1.1kg of material to be simultaneously mixed and deaerated.
  • Typical mixing times are in the order of a few seconds to a few minutes, depending on material viscosities and complexities.
  • It stores five sets of mixing and degassing conditions (time and speed per mode) in a single batch cycle that consolidates otherwise time-consuming formulation into a single step, completing in seconds to minutes what might otherwise take a great deal longer.
  • Precise control of the mixing/dispersion process makes it possible not only to deliver improved and consistent formulation quality, but also to eliminate human errors and the need to rely on special operator skills.
  • Shear forces are minimal so as not to damage delicate materials, while cooled or heated materials can be processed using special adapters.
  • The ability to mix in the user’s own container eliminates the need to clean between batches, saving significant time and lowering costs, while improving yield rate.
  • The simultaneous process of dispersion and degassing in one batch is said to give major time savings.
  • The ability to process quantities as small as 0.5ml saves wastage of valuable materials, while remixing of separated materials can prolong shelf life and save stock costs.
