Have you seen the Thinky nano-level mixer from Intertronics? Seeing is certainly believing in this case, so delegates at the Nano Forum this year (3rd/4th November @ Hilton, Park Lane, London) will now be able to see demonstrations of non-invasive planetary mixing with a variety of materials. The planetary principle does not enfold air so air bubbles are simply not created and without mixing blades or similar the Thinky eliminates extreme stress peaks within the material that could otherwise damage fragile nano-particles.

Nano level mixing from Intertronics - seeing is believing

London, UK | Posted on October 12th, 2009

In the arena of high technology and high performance materials the uniform dispersal of nano-sized particles in substrates such as resin is often extremely difficult work. Consequently Intertronics are pleased to demonstrate their solution in the form of the Thinky mixer range.

In particular the ARV-310 and its larger capacity sibling the ARV-5000 both utilise proven Thinky planetary mixing technology with the added advantage of a vacuum environment.

Their powerful 400g acceleration enables uniform mixing as well as simultaneous dispersion and deaerating for highly active nano-sized particles such as carbon nano-tubes or particles in epoxy or silicone, nano-ceramic in water, nano-fibres in polymer, nano-gold balls, yag phosphor in silicone, or for organic materials.

Explains Peter Swanson, M.D. at Intertronics: "The Thinky ARV units are addressing the really difficult mixing problems in laboratories around the world. Their bi-directional action does not enfold air while the new vacuum environment facility removes existing air or other gases. A good example is carbon nano-tube dispersion in epoxy where compared to hand mixing the Thinky process led to better than halving resistivity in the final material."

The Thinky planetary mixing process is considered ideal for nano-polymers, ultra-fine semiconductor elements, molecular devices, biogenic materials, protein solar batteries, organic ELs, intelligent ceramics, functional materials, materials for high-technology electronic devices, carbon nano-tubes, nano-carbon black, nano-composite, etc.
