Introducing Three New Laboratory Scale Mixers: Hygienic. Efficient. Safe.

Oct 14 2021

Laboratories can now benefit from a new range of laboratory scale mixers incorporating the latest developments in design and manufacturing technology. 
The three new Laboratory scale mixers, launched by Silverson Machines, include a laboratory scale version of the Silverson Flashmix Powder/Liquid mixer.

Simple, effective and hygienic powder/liquid mixing

The FMX5, a laboratory scale version of Silverson's production scale Flashmix powder/liquid mixers, is an exciting new development in the range. Providing a simple, effective and hygienic means of powder/liquid mixing on a laboratory scale, the FMX5 is able to process higher viscosity mixes.

Ease of operation for straightforward scale-up 

The FMX5 is suitable for small scale manufacturing and R&D work with a typical batch size of up to 10 litres, depending on viscosity. The mixer offers an accurate means of predicting the performance of the production scale Flashmix, making the scale-up process a simple task.

The FMX5 offers proven performance on a wide range of powders including gums (CMC, Guar, Gum Arabic, Pectin, Xanthan), sugars, flours, milk powder, Carbopol, Bentonite and many others across a range of industries. The introduction of this new Powder/Liquid mixer to the Silverson product ranges opens up the possibility of many more applications than were previously possible at laboratory scale. 

Powerful pumping for processing higher viscosity products

The Verso-HV is a pilot scale In-Line mixer suitable for higher viscosity mixing at a laboratory scale. Incorporating a unique and innovative ‘pumping rotor’ design that substantially increases its self-pumping capacity, the instrument is perfect for processing higher viscosity products.

As well as being ideal for R&D and small scale production, the Verso-HV facilitates easy scale up to Silverson’s production scale UHS-HV Series In-Line mixers as it is built to the same fine tolerances.

Applications demanding stringent and hygienic requirements 

The Verso UHS is an Ultra-Hygienic version of the standard machine, allowing it to be used for stringent applications in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries as well as food, cosmetics and other clean industries. 

The Verso UHS is manufactured with Silverson-designed hygienic single mechanical shaft seals, which can be converted to hygienic double mechanical shaft seals. It has a crevice-free construction and is designed for Cleaning-In-Place (CIP) and Sterilise-In-Place (SIP) operation. UHS-specification versions of the FMX5 and the Verso-HV are also available.

All three new mixer options can be supplied with a Vessel Package, comprising of a 20 litre stainless steel vessel, vessel stand, valve and pipework. Conversion kits are also available allowing the standard Verso to be upgraded to a Verso-HV and an FMX5, allowing even further flexibility within this new series of mixers.
