Admix BenchMix™ Lab Mixer

Admix BenchMix Lab Mixer

Admix offers a complete series of high technology lab mixers, ranging from 1-liter bench-top units to 20-gallon pilot plant floor models. Even more, all models are completely manufactured or enclosed in stainless steel for superior corrosion resistance, sanitation, and clean-ability.

Admix BenchMix Lab Mixer

First of all, the revolutionary benchtop lab mixer is specifically designed for product development, simulation and scale-up. The BenchMix models provide predictable, repeatable results from the development lab to full production when scaling up to Rotostat emulsifiers or Rotosolver high shear mixer. As a result, the BenchMix is backed by Admix’s process assurance warranty.

Customers can test their products in the Admix lab and pilot plant. Admix’s 2,500 square-foot testing facility is available for application development using a variety of Admix mixers and tanks to test customer samples and demonstrate scale-up process formulas. Schedule a demonstration of your mixing application and Admix will provide solutions to the toughest mixing challenges.

  • Available with 2 types of high shear mix heads and several size propellers for a range of testing
  • Offered with an electric lift stand for easier raising and lowering and mix head placement
  • Glass bead finish stainless cabinet with 316SS shafting and mix heads
  • Variable speed from 500 – 12,000 RPM through a brushless DC motor


How Lab Mixers Work

The precision scale of the high shear lab mixer heads allows for complete validation, process qualifications, and Q/C analysis. As a result, this applies to pharmaceuticals, food components, and cosmetic formulations.

Therefore, the BenchMix is designed with a simple operating touchscreen interface and provides shaft speeds up to 12,000 RPM and its 3 HP motor delivers unmatched power, performance, and scalability.

The pilot plant models (XP-02 and RS-02) operate at 3600 RPM providing the ideal tip speed for most applications. Also, speed controllers are available as an option to reduce the mixing intensity in thinner formulas.

Finally, the BenchMix high shear lab mixers provide a digital display of tip speed, mixing intensity, and pumping rates, allowing the operator to qualify and validate the process with as little as 1-10 liters (0.5-2.5 gallons) while providing the guidelines necessary to scale up to larger volumes.
