The SpeedMixer™ – Engineered and hand built in Germany. Powerful and made to last.
The large-sized SpeedMixer range containers mixers intended for specialty/pilot production as well as large batch research and development. These large mixers weigh over 1 metric ton and require 400-440V triple phase electric hookups.
Mix/grind- colloids, fluids, grease, resins, inks, paints, silicones, pastes, oils, creams, gels, emulsions, epoxies, powders, urethanes, liquids and more, in any combination!

The SpeedMixer DAC 5000 is useful for 1 and 2 part silicones, polyurethanes, polysulfides, acrylics and a wide range of other materials. There are certainly a great number of products not included in this list that can benefit from the use of the SpeedMixer technology. With disposable cups, there is no worry about contamination in colour master batches, pharmaceutical products, or other sensitive materials, since the DAC 5000 has no mixing components to clean. Both re-usable and less expensive disposable cups (recommended especially where cross-contamination is a problem) are available. The Speed Mixer DAC 3000 also allows the use of higher filler loadings than conventional mixers, e.g., 25% or more of fumed silica into a silicone!
The main current applications are for lab screening of development formulations and formulation components, for QA testing, and for small volume production. With the incredible speed of mixing the bottleneck now becomes the weighing operation, not the mixing. This makes every SpeedMixer™ user a better compounder, since it allows the mixing of many iterations that would otherwise go untested due to time constraints. The SpeedMixer DAC 5000 has proven itself extremely useful for tests involving cure rates, colours, and appearance, as well as the measurement of basic physical properties. This permits the screening of numerous formulations before the next phase of development scale-up. SpeedMixer technology involves using the proper size cup for each mixture to be run.

Mixing/dispersing/grinding with and without vacuum- the SpeedMixer saves time, improves sample quality, removes bubbles, reduces exposure time to chemicals and eliminates cleanup!
FAQ: Blade Free Mixing:
The SpeedMixer works by the spinning of a high speed mixing arm in one direction while the basket rotates in the opposite direction (thus, the name – Dual Asymmetric Centrifuge). This combination of forces in different planes enables incredibly fast mixing, and yet the precision construction of each machine gives it a balance that allows amazingly quiet operation.
