Achieved through continually revolving and rotating the container concurrently, the unique dual rotation action eliminates the need for mixing rods, blades or media, or an evacuation device and can dramatically reduce processing times.

Applications


  • Conductive/resistance materials such as gold, silver, copper and carbon paste
  • Sealing/insulation materials such as glass and ceramic paste
  • Seal/glue materials such as epoxy resin
  • Molding materials such as silicone resin
  • Mixtures of various color materials such as ink, paint and pigments
  • Production of dentistry, medical/pharmaceutical or cosmetic base materials
  • Abrasion of precision parts

The Mazerustar® is particularly useful for the following materials and processing purposes:

  • High-viscosity liquids, which were impossible to mix, or which required long processing times by conventional mixing machines or deaeration devices
  • Mixing two or more kinds of liquids which are widely different from each other in their characteristics or specific gravities
  • Mixing liquids and powders (filler), which need to be evenly mixed even if the two kinds of materials are widely different from each other in their characteristics or specific gravities
  • High value added materials that need to be processed without influence of containment (contaminants) and require processing with minimal waste
  • Work processes that may benefit from reduced time and labor by minimizing processing and device or container clean-up

Performance

The Mazerustar® performs mixing and deaeration simultaneously by continually revolving and rotating the container concurrently.



Rotation Action 1
Both revolution (centrifugal) speed and container rotation (planetary) speed are independently variable. This unique mixing capability allows the operator to design precise solutions for mixing various systems.

Rotation Action 2
Both revolution speed and rotation speed can be programmed independently in a stepwise fashion (three steps maximum). This stepwise programming ability allows the operator to treat materials in sequence to achieve optimal mixing results for a wide variety of systems and industries.

Example Processing

  • Before
  • Processing Steps
  • After
  • Silver Paste
  • Minimize increase in temperature with even dispersion by setting the revolution level and the rotation level to medium)
  • Step A
    Revolution: 5
    Rotation: 5
    Time:120 Sec.
  • 17.5°C...........................................................................24.0°C
  • Alumina Paste
  • (Prevent paste from becoming lumpy with excellent deaeration, by using a two-step process)
  • Step A
    Revolution: 3
    Rotation: 7
    Time:30 Sec.
  • Step B
    Revolution: 9
    Rotation: 3
    Time:60 Sec.
  • Transparent: Epoxy Resin, White: Alumina Powder, Blue: Pigment
  • Lipstick Base Material
  • (Mainly for mixing, set both the revolution level and rotation level rather high)
  • Step A
    Revolution: 9
    Rotation: 7
    Time:90 Sec.


Processing Steps Definitions


Revolution: The speed is variable with 9 levels (1-9)
Rotation ratio: The speed is variable with 10 levels (0-9)
Rotation speed = Revolution speed x 1.0 [ except 0.0])

Specifications are subject to change without prior notice.

  1. The specifications described here are for example purposes only. Mixers are custom designed to exact specifications.
  2. By using the adapters (optional), multiple types of containers can be freely used.
  3. Weight is the gross weight including the container and adapter.
  4. Certain specific gravity and/or viscosity conditions may cause a de-rating of published capacities.

Container Options


In addition to standard containers, containers such as disposable cups, commercially available containers, syringes, etc. are available for the Mazerustar® mixers by using adapters (optional).


In particular for syringes, multiple sets of adapters are available in the mixer series including KK-2000 model, which are most suitable for deaeration of paste contained in a number of syringes.
