EMS BenchMixer™ Vortex Mixer

EMS #87002-01, 87002-02


The EMS BenchMixer™ Vortex Mixer is a compact, powerful, vortex mixer designed for vortexing micro tubes of all sizes. Dynamic balance technology provides smooth speed control and quiet operation with minimal vibration.

Set Up

Place the vortex mixer on a clean, flat, stable surface and press down slightly to allow the suction cup feet to adhere. Make sure that the mode switch is in the OFF position and plug the vortex mixer into a properly grounded outlet. Using the SPEED control knob, adjust the mixing speed to the desired setting. Start at the middle of the speed range if you are uncertain of what setting you need. Check that the cup head is securely fastened by gently rotating it clockwise.


Set the mode switch to the desired setting of ON (continuous mixing) or TOUCH. In touch mode the tube to be mixed is pressed downward against the head to activate the vortex mixing action. Touch the tube to be mixed to the head and observe the vortex mixing action. Adjust the SPEED knob to obtain more or less vortex mixing action.

Care and Maintenance

No routine maintenance is required other than to keep the unit clean. Cleaning can be done with a damp cloth. Avoid the use of solvents as they may attack the rubber cap head or the ABS plastic housing. Do not immerse the mini vortexer in liquid or subject it to temperatures outside of the recommended operating range.
