Intertronics provides Thinky ARV-10K Twin planetary mixer for 20 litre quantities

The Thinky ARV-10K Twin planetary mixer from Intertronics offers the mixing and degassing capabilities of the Thinky technology in a size suitable for larger production. The planetary action on the twin 10-litre containers results in repeatable and fully homogenous mixing, says Intertronics. This capability is combined with simultaneous deaeration and degassing down to sub-micron levels.

The Thinky ARV-10K Twin is a twin mixer system which offers a maximum capacity of 29-kg. The vacuum is applied to the individual containers, reducing the vacuum volume and saving process time when applying and returning to atmospheric pressure. The synergies of planetary centrifugal mixing whilst under vacuum means that no air is added during the mix, says Intertronics, and any air in the material is removed down to sub-micron levels. According to Intertronics, this happens without excess foaming and spillage, and in much shorter cycle times, unlike typical vacuum degassing processes. Volatile compounds can be processed without vacuum.

The Thinky ARV-10K Twin is programmable, and brings control and consistency to mixing processes where guaranteed uniformity and low tolerance for even micro-bubbles is required. Critical areas include pharmaceutical formulation, fuel cells, batteries, precision composite fabrication, and thermal management materials. 

Intertronics is hosting a demonstration unit at its Technology Centre in Oxford, UK, for test and evaluation by European customers.
