Milliwatt mixer for small fluid samples



Robert F. Berg


Mixing without excessive heating is sometimes needed for temperature-sensitive fluids. We modified an inexpensive low-frequency electronic filter based on a mechanical resonator to produce a compact (16 mm) and low-power (l-3 mW) mixer for low viscosity fluids. Tests made in air and methanol at room temperature and in fluoroform near its critical point are compared against the predictions of an electromechanical model.
