THINKY ARV-310 vacuum degassing machine


THINKY ARV-310 Mixing and Vacuum Degassing Machine, Planetary Centrifugal Vacuum Mixing

The THINKY ARV-310 is an industrial non-contact “planetary” mixer for all engineering compounds. This vacuum degassing machine mixes, disperses and degasses up to 310g of material to high levels in seconds to minutes, removing any micro-bubbles using an integral vacuum function. Mixing takes place in a sealed or lid-less container such as a jar, beaker, syringe tube or cartridge. The non-contact mixing principle makes it possible to formulate compounds from very small amounts such as 0.5ml to large production scales.

Caution must be taken to prevent foaming and messy overflows when manually degassing using vacuum. In the THINKY, materials don’t overflow because they are pressed to the side wall of the container during the simultaneous mixing procedure.

  16. dental materials
  17. foods
  18. construction materials
  19. any other materials which are hard-to-mix, hard-to-degas, or hard-to-wet

Maximum material mixing volume is 250ml in the vacuum state and 300ml in the air state without vacuum. Maximum centrifugal power of the ARV-310 is 400G, which is produced from 2,000 rpm and the 9cm diameter arc of the container rotation. Revolution is adjustable in a range of 0.200-2,000 rpm and the ratio of the revolution to the rotation of the cup holder is fixed at a 2:1 ratio.

The ARV-310 mixes in the vacuum chamber and includes the vacuum pump. The vacuum pressure can be programmed in torr or kPa to a maximum of 5 torr in 0.1 torr increments. The ARV-310 can store 9 recipe profiles. Each profile has 5 programmable steps for continuous mixing in either air or vacuum. Total processing time per profile is up to 30 minutes and each step can be programmed in 1 second increments.
