The THINKY ARV-310 and THINKY ARV-5000 are
industrial non-contact "planetary" mixers
for all engineering compounds. They mix, disperse and degas your
materials in seconds to minutes, 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.
The capabilities of the THINKY ARV-310 Mixer
The THINKY ARV-310 and the THINKY ARV-5000 have
the ability to process under vacuum, or under normal pressure,
or even automatically switching into vacuum mode from non-vacuum state
during the process. It is possible to set the desired vacuum level
for different types of ingredients. For high-viscosity materials and materials
for which a high degree of de-aeration is required, these are ideal mixers.
These mixers can eliminate micron-sized bubbles, without the danger of
foaming and messy spillage.

|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
The THINKY ARV Mixers consolidate time consuming formulation processes into a single step, completing in seconds to minutes. They eliminate non-productive cleaning between batches with the use of your own product's container. Our customers use the mixer to formulate and mix a multitude of different products including adhesives, sealants, molding compounds, lubricants, slurries, coatings, inks, paints, abrasives, bio-chemicals, cements, medical compounds, cosmetics/personal care materials, detergents, conductive pastes, dental materials, foods, construction materials or any other materials which are hard-to-mix, hard-to-degas, or hard-to-wet. The operation as easy as setting the container into the unit and pressing the button. It will be complete in seconds to minutes - consistent homogeneous mixing with no air.

The ARV-310 holds up to a 310g material container. 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.
The ARV-5000 holds up to a 5000g material container. Maximum material mixing volume is 3 litres in the vacuum state and 4 litres in the air state without vacuum. Maximum centrifugal power of the ARV-5000 is 400G. The revolution is adjustable in a range of 200-800 rpm and the ratio of the revolution to the rotation of the cup holder is fixed at 0.75 ratio.
The ARV-5000 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 1 torr increments. It can reach full vacuum state in 30 seconds. The ARV-5000 can store 10 recipe profiles. Each profile has 2 programmable steps for continuous mixing from air to vacuum. Total processing time per profile is up to 30 minutes and each step can be programmed in 1 second increments. Recall the program at operation, monitoring of speed/vacuum/alert/error through the control panel, visual warning through signal tower or etc, the ARV-5000 is with all features that you need to work with in the production.
