StateMix has developed a centrifuge type mixer that can blend, disperse and de-gas materials with a wide range of viscosities.
The Vortex Mixer rotates a pail containing liquids or powders with two axes running simultaneously in opposite directions at a high RPM. Operators can adjust the speed and duration according to the viscosity, temperature and types of materials being combined.
The Vortex Mixer can mix up to 5 pounds of material usually within 10 to 40 seconds.
