The Thermo Scientific™ HAAKE™ MiniLab 3 Micro Compounder provides unrivaled flexibility in designing products to meet the needs of tomorrow. The HAAKE™ MiniLab 3 Micro Compounder offers extrusion specifications and online rheology measurements for scale-up and pilot projects across a variety of compounded materials.
Using material quantities as small as 5 g, or 7 cm3, the HAAKE™ MiniLab 3 provides valuable results that enable users to streamline their new material development. Its screw speed and pressure range make it suitable for performing reactive extrusions and for compounding expensive materials.
Obtaining new compounds faster and documenting structural variations online has never been simpler. The HAAKE™ MiniLab 3 Micro Compounder is a conical, twin-screw compounder consisting of an integrated backflow channel. The compounder functions as either a stand-alone unit or can be a totally computer-controlled system, and can be used with either co- or counter-rotating screws. It is fitted with an inert gas flush system. Owing to its channel and a bypass valve design, the residence time is well-defined. Two pressure transducers are incorporated in the backflow channel, which allow the measurement of relative melt viscosity when counter-rotating screws are used. When the HAAKE™ MiniLab 3 Micro Compounder is used along with the optional force feeder, continuous extrusion with very small volume flows is achievable.
The HAAKE™ MiniLab 3 Micro Compounder Features
- Co- and counter-rotating twin screws
- Automatic bypass operation for circulation/extrusion
- Integrated viscosity measurement (with HAAKE™ PolySoft OS)
- Local control via a tablet (Android®) for intuitive operation
- Pneumatic feeding
- Compact enough to fit into laboratory fume hood
- Split barrel exit for easy cleaning
The HAAKE™ MiniLab 3 Micro Compounder is recommended for material science research, such as creating new formulations and testing expensive additives.
