IKA® Introduces a Newly Equipped Research and Development Mixer with Integrated Speed Control

Wilmington, NC - The newly equipped research and development mixer comes with an integrated speed control developed by T.B. Woods, a leading designer and manufacturer of drives. This variable frequency drive mounts directly onto the motor eliminating the need for the additional work space required by the previous models. The mixer is then operated by a hand held unit which controls all processing functions. The units new configuration simplifies the installation process, and allows for much easier maintenance and repair than traditional mixers. It is ideally suited to chemical, pharmaceutical, and food processing in laboratory or pilot plant applications.

The unique design of the new IKA® research and development mixer helps companies get new products to market faster by easing the transition from R&D to production quantities. IKA's modular, belt drive system connects the AC motor and the mixing chambers allowing each IKA mixer to operate at identical tip speeds. This means processors can count on the production line quality being the same as that achieved by the R&D department, eliminating costly reformulation or re-engineering during production start-ups.

The unit is designed for multiple uses including mixing, dispersing, wet grinding and powder incorporation. Four interchangeable mixing tools and up to three stages provide for maximum flexibility. Seven different mixing head options are also available. The mixer also has a double mechanical seal for processes requiring higher pressures, or containing highly abrasive solids. All product contact surfaces are 316 SS.

Available accessories include a vessel, recirculation loop, pumps, and a solids feeder. The standard generator is 4M (medium), with 2P, 2G and 6F generators optional.

Established in 1986 to serve the North and South American markets, IKA Works has continually grown to serve an increasing demand for mixing capabilities. IKA manufactures in-line and batch mixers, colloid mills, powder incorporation products and systems with unique applications in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and food industries.
