Our unique Helicone Mixer design is used by top leading manufacturers and laboratories around the world to develop and produce innovative products. We are the world leader in manufacturing polylactide, polyglycolide, and copolymer mixers.



CV (Cone Vertical)

SC (Single Cone)



The Helicone Mixer by Design Integrated Technology, Inc. (DIT) has been in production since the 1960's (formerly under Atlantic Research Corp) and comes in two models, the CV (Cone Vertical) and SC (Single Cone).  The Helicones are highly specialized, multi-agitator mixers that lend themselves to a variety of applications utilized in many industries.  Over 117 products have been patented with the assistance of Helicone mixers, such as Kevlar®[1] and Gore-Tex®[2]. These mixers typically outperform horizontal and vertical designs by reducing mixing time as much as 50%.  Both the CV and SC are low speed, medium shear style reactors with excellent mix dispersement. High shear dispersement available in SC model. High viscosity polymerization and condensation reactions are routinely accomplished in Helicone mixers.

One of the most important features of Helicone mixers is the ability to accurately scale-up your batch from the smaller laboratory mixers to the larger production mixers.  The CV also has the unique ability to allow you to scale-up your recipes and conditions from a small batch mixer to a twin screw extruder.

We continue to update our mixer design with the newest technology so that our customers can have the competitive edge in each of their industries. We will also work with you to customize the mixer to your specific needs.

The Helicone Mixer is primarily utilized in industries that produce Polymers/Monomers, Polylactide, Polyglycolide, Thermoplastics, Silicones, Ceramics, Pharmaceuticals, Epoxies, Adhesives, Propellants, Pyrotechnics, etc. Long term service in ultra high viscosity mixing applications is a normal design feature for the Helicone.
