Hauschild Engineering’s (Hamm, Germany) Hauschild SpeedMixer, first developed in 1974 and refined ever since, provides a specialized solution for mixing substances for adhesives and sealants in labs. This centrifugal mixer can mix different liquids and pastes, pastes with powders, one powder with another and various combinations of liquids and powders fast and bubble-free. It is even able to mix materials with different chemical and physical properties — like epoxy resins, lacquers, silicones, gels and oils — to form new products.
Leveraging centrifugal forces
The Hauschild SpeedMixer relies on dual asymmetric centrifuge (DAC) technology for its efficacy. The special feature of this mixing principle is the dual rotation of the mixing vessel. The combination of centrifugal forces working on different planes enables an extremely efficient mixing process, distinguished by a homogeneous result without the use of mixing blades.
Hauschild says the mixing process achieves a degassing of virtually 100%. It eliminates even the smallest micro-bubbles, dispensing with additional degassing cycles. The Hauschild SpeedMixer featuring vacuum technology is also available for complete air extraction. Programmable cycles improve mixture repeatability, thereby speeding up the development process considerably.
“Thanks to its extremely fast bubble-free mixing, our Hauschild SpeedMixer shortens the product development, analysis and quality assurance process in the laboratory tremendously,” Fabio Boccola, CEO of Hauschild Engineering, explains.
No cleaning required
As the Hauschild SpeedMixer mixes in disposable vessels without blades, there is no need for cleaning or the additional use of chemicals. The dimensions of the mixing vessels and mixing buckets range from a few grams up to 10 kg and from a few mL to a nominal capacity of up to 16 L.
