Small Vacuum Mixer

Small Vacuum Mixer

Small Vacuum Mixer


I am trying to source a small vacuum mixer. This is simply a regular laboratory vacuum chamber (10~20 Litres) fitted with some means of mixing a liquid in the chamber.

The material I am working with is very viscous with a fast curing rate so it can't be mixed first and then placed in a vacuum chamber afterwards.

I remember coming across such a device a few years ago on the internet, but can't find it now.

Appreciate any help,

RE: Small Vacuum Mixer

For what its worth I remember seeing a laboratory mixer which employed an external geared revolving magnet as the driver. A self centering magnetically attactive material was placed in a glass jar with the solution to be mixed and it worked a treat. Sounds like you will need strong magnets! Hope this helps you.
