Silverson has unveiled a new video demonstrating and explaining the use of the Sealed Unit Laboratory mixer.
According to the company, this comes after many requests for information on one of the specialised mixers in the Silverson Laboratory mixer range.
The Silverson Sealed Unit Laboratory Mixer is designed mixing sterile materials or hazardous materials, for working under vacuum and for applications where it is essential to exclude airborne contamination. It has been designed so that processing can be carried out under conditions of absolute safety, since the mechanical seal protects sterile materials from airborne contamination and eliminates the risk of materials escaping into the surrounding atmosphere.
The mixer is ideal for research and pilot-scale production, mixing in clean-rooms and for mixing applications in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.
The efficiency of the machine is such that materials are reduced to a fine homogeneous suspension in a few seconds, with virtually no heat rise. In the Sealed Unit product video, the mixer's special Quick-Release mechanism is demonstrated. Like with many other mixers in the Silverson product range, the Sealed Unit mixer comes with a range of interchangeable workheads for different processing needs, increasing versatility. These are compatible with a range of glass or stainless steel mixing vessels which can be supplied with the mixer. The Quick-Release mechanism permits any of these Sealed Unit Mixing Assemblies to be easily attached or removed. Once attached, the mechanism hermetically seals the mixing assembly and vessel, preventing any contamination.
As with the standard L5M-A Laboratory mixer, the sealed unit comes with touch pad control with digital tachometer, programmable integral timer and amperage display.
This level of instrumentation is invaluable for applications, such as vaccines, where process validation and reproducibility are required.
