A technical update to the eco-DUOMIX has added efficient new features including a more powerful mixer motor with 100% higher torque, and an assembly aid for replacing the mixing capsule. Additional optimization of the sealing concept and the mixer shaft unit have a positive effect on service life and maintenance intervals. The eco-CONTROL-EC200 2.0 unit gives the eco-DUOMIX even functionality by using drive monitoring with speed control, and digital speed adjustment in every mixing program.
The possible mixing ratios remain the same: 1:1 to 1:10 or 10:1. Also unchanged is the process monitoring using the flowplus SPT M6 precision pressure sensor. The central element of the eco-DUOMIX is the dead space optimized mixing capsules, in which materials with different processing paramaters such as silicone, epoxy resin, polyurethane, polyester resin, or acrylates can be mixed. It has a very low dead volume of just 0.85 ml. Compared to static mixers, this results in shorter dwell times of the material in the mixer and less material wastage, reducing total costs.
Due to the increase in rheologically different media, dynamic mixing processes are currently experiencing considerably popularity. Unlike with static mixing, where the fluid material alone mixes due to a laminar flow motion, in a dynamic mixing process the components are brought together in a mixing chamber. Special motorized mixing elements ensure a constant turbulent flow. Mixing blades produce a splitting and distributing effect. These are all properties that give manufacturers process and planning reliability, even when the variety of materials increases.
