Mixing unit for the production of gas mixtures with 3M™ Novec™ 5110

The mixing unit has been specially developed for gas mixtures based on 3M™ Novec™ 4710 or 3M™ Novec™ 5110. A total of three gas components can be mixed. Using the integrated compressor, the generated gas mixture can be filled directly into gas compartments or for transportation, stored into cylinders with up to 85 bar. The cylinders can be emptied completely by means of the integrated suction pump in order to avoid residual quantities of e.g. 3M™ Novec™ 4710 and can then be used for the mixing process.

The gas mixture is circulated by the compressor to generate a homogenous mixture. When filling into transport cylinders, the weight of the connected storage cylinder is monitored by the integrated digital weighing scales. If necessary, e.g. when changing the mixing ratio, the mixing vessel can be emptied completely (< 1 mbar).

The unit is operated via a 10“ colour touch panel. The symbols used in the control system of the unit are intuitive, unique and enable the operator a quick overview of the entire process.
