Mixing & Tinting Equipment


Mixing Equipment

Mixing and Tinting Equipment, is commonly sought out, by homeowners and contractors, for their painting needs. This specialized equipment, is found in retail paint stores, and home centers.

Paint mixers vary in capability. There are 1 gallon mixers, 5 gallon mixers, and multi-sized mixers. The latter, are capable of mixing cans from 1 pint, up to 5 gallons. That said, some of the 1 gallon mixers, come with 1 pint, and 1 quart can adapters.

Mixing action can be had by, shaking or vibrating. More expensive painting mixers, utilize vortex action. This motion, causes the paint can to spin and rotate, at the same time. Another type, uses gyroscopic motion.


Tinting Equipment

Tinting equipment comes in either manual or automatic modes. Manual colorant dispensers usually consist of a series of nylon tubes, mounted on a rotating table. Incremental guides, tell the user, how much colorant to dispense, which is done, by operating a manually operated lever.

Automatic tinting equipment is more self-contained, than manual tinting equipment, and takes up less space. New automatic pump technology, eliminates the need for valves, and offers unprecedented accuracy.
