Hosokawa Micron’s Mini Cyclomix lab mixer is designed to blend formulations for dry-powder inhalers (DPIs) without deteriorating the particles. The mixer features exchangeable product bowl sizes of 100 mL, 1 L, and 2 L, which require no special tools to be connected to the drive unit with a bayonet ring.

An integrated touch panel operates the unit, with recipe management, data logging, and data export controls. An adjustable mixing speed and time allows the mixer to be used for coating, bonding, rounding, or densification. A combination of impact and shear mixing is used, via an agitator with paddles and knife blade. When the rotational movement moves the product to the top of the vessel, a formed dome at the top of the mixer pushes the product back down through the center of the vessel, ensuring a thorough mixing process.
