The benchtop mixer saves time wasted by hand mixing. It is simple to install and operate. Semi-automatic mixing with the benchtop mixer provides many advantages over hand mixing:
- Eliminates variation due by always mixing at the same rate.
- Gentle mixing does not incorporate air bubbles into your mixture.
- Complete mixing assured because fatique, boredom and impatience of hand mixing is eliminated.
- Eliminates fatigue.
Operation is easy: simply tighten your container in the adjustable chuck. Then secure a wood stick in the stick-holder-arm and turn on the speed knob to desired speed. When mixing is complete, simply throw away the stick. No other cleanup is necessary.
Mixes high viscosity liquids up to 30,000 cp. Ideal for epoxy resins or polyester resins but also used for paints, soldermasks and other liquids.
Everything included. Ships with 100 wood paddles and 12V AC adapter. You supply your own disposable containers.
Operation theory: the chuck is known as a "Longworth chuck" consists of two discs that rotate counter to each other in order to cause the grips to move inwards to tighten on the container. The mixing stick interrupts the fluid movement and this turnbulence causes the contents to mix.
