About THINKY ARV-5000 Planetary Centrifugal Mixing and Vacuum Degassing Machine

The THINKY ARV-5000 is an industrial non-contact “planetary” mixer for the centrifugal vacuum mixing of all engineering compounds. It mixes, disperses and degasses your materials in seconds to minutes, in a sealed or lid-less container such as a jar, beaker, syringe tube or cartridge. The ARV-5000 holds up to a 5000g material container. 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.
