Laboratory Planetary Mixer R51

Mixes high viscosity products, with the requirement of large proportions of powders or mineral fillers
Versatility with 3 interchangeable tools
Hygienic stainless-steel design
Numerous options available to widen the range of mixing processes

The planetary mixer R51 is perfect for the mixing and blending of high viscosity products. It’s particularly useful for chemical products such as:

  • Resins with mineral fillers, with or without a catalyst
  • Preparation of ceramic slurries, refractory products
  • Concrete mixes for standardized tests (with aggregates)
  • Cement mixes with or without fibers
  • Tinting of fatty inks for printing

Three interchangeable tools are available: the cross-section paddle (standard), the spiral (optional), and the hook (optional). The mixer is optimized for hygiene with its all stainless steel design (bowl, grid, tools, frame, etc).

With a useful capacity of 3 liters, the R51 planetary mixer’s functions can be expanded with these options:

  • Vacuum version allowing the debulling of products during mixing
  • Vacuum pump 
  • Double jacketed bowl for heating and/or cooling by water
  • Heating unit
  • Temperature sensor in the bowl with quick connection
  • Removable bowl scraper

Bench-Top Mixer Turbotest®

Versatility in applications using a wide range of turbines
Repeatability of mixing parameters
Easy to set up and operate
Hygienic design

The Turbotest® laboratory mixer enables manufacturers to develop formulations according to the end product’s rheology. It has multiple interchangeable tools (turbines, propellers, rotor-stator emulsifiers), making it ideal for:

  • Quality testing
  • R&D trials
  • Development of new formulations

The Turbotest® guarantees the reproduction of process parameters for scale-up operations (e.g. from laboratory to industrial production). It validates turbine types and speed ranges according to the ingredients used whether the ingredients are liquid, powder, viscous, miscible, or immiscible. The Turbotest® covers a capacity range of 250 mL to 5 liters.

The design of this innovative benchtop homogenizer benefits from over 60 years of VMI research conducted in France and worldwide. 

You can order the Turbotest® and its mixing tool kit (2 packages to choose from) online at www.mylabmixer.com

Laboratory Disperser Supertest

Easy to use and optimized for ergonomic comfort
Production versatility with different propellers, turbines, and emulsifiers
Variety of volumes: from 200 mL to 20 liters
Safe to use (conforms to CE standards)

The Supertest laboratory disperser provides the necessary flexibility and power  needed in the agitation of complex products. The Air Supertest is ATEX compliant for safe work in explosive atmospheres.

The mixer shaft can be removed to allow the operator to change tools independently. The following parts can adapt to the rheology of the raw materials being mixed:

  • Propellers for low-speed mixing
  • Turbines for high-speed dispersions of immiscible phases
  • Rotor-stator for complex emulsions of thick ingredients

The agitation speed of the Supertest range varies according to the model:

  • Supertest from 250 to 3600 rpm
  • Air Supertest from 250 to 3000 rpm
  • Electrical Supertest ATEX from 250 to 2500 rpm

Applications

VMI laboratory mixers can be used for a wide range of applications thanks to their interchangeable tools. They enable the homogenization of liquid ingredients, the dissolution of powders, and the dispersion of thick or viscous mixtures.
