The Non-Vacuum Mixer for Deaeration of High-Viscosity Materials

THINKY Corporation has introduced a planetary centrifugal mixer called “THINKY MIXER” ARE-310. The product is the standard model of the THINKY MIXER series.

With the help of this mixer, high-viscosity materials can be simultaneously mixed, dispersed, and deaerated.

  • Exclusive air-cooling system
  • Supports a broad range of materials, such as nanofillers and high-viscosity materials
  • Step-operation and memory functions for regulating and performing operating conditions
  • Includes a wide range of adapters for various containers
  • Heat-resistant, cold-insulated adapter supports numerous material properties
  • The two modes of mixing and deaeration accomplish the deaeration and dispersion of high-viscosity materials in a short period of time

With more than 400 G centrifugal force, various materials ranging from low to high viscosities can be concurrently mixed, dispersed, and deaerated for general purposes.

Equipped with a deaeration mode that allows high-precision deaeration, the new model demonstrates superior performance when it comes to deaeration of high-viscosity materials and adhesives, whose viscosities are raised by added fillers.

A broad array of materials and applications are supported by using adapters for numerous containers. They are used for research and development or production, where negligible amounts of materials are prepared.

Complete Mixing of Oil-Based Clay

Have users ever observed an example of oil-based clay mixing in the THINKY MIXER catalog?

THINKY Corporation has been asked by customers, “Is this picture of mixing clay real?” To clarify such doubts, the process of mixing oil-based clay has been thoroughly recorded in the video below.

Mixing red and white clay by THINKY Mixer | THINKY CORPORATION

Oil-based clay known as “modeling clay” is used here. Red clay and white clay of about 100 g each are placed into a 300 mL container and then mixed at 2000 rpm.

There is also a CE certified model version of the ARE-310 available, the ARE-250CE.

After mixing for 30 seconds. When viewed from the top, we can see that white clay is rising slowly but steadily from the bottom. The side still keeps its two-tone color structure. However, when viewing the cross section, we can see that the clay has already started to swirl inside.
After 40 seconds. The side appears like marbled meat containing a large amount of fat. The cross section shows an advanced spiral structure.
After 50 seconds. The outside is pure white! The cross section shows that the spiral structure is undergoing delicate changes little by little.
After 60 seconds. A swirl appears on top.
After 70 seconds. The mixing has advanced a lot.
After 80 seconds. At this stage, the mixing seems complete when viewed from the outside. The cross section shows that mixing is almost complete.
After 90 seconds. A perfect mixture!
I cut the mixed clay vertically in half and then horizontally to obtain thin slices. In the following, I display the slices side by side, which look like bacon or ham.
