Resodyn Corporation Engineers Present Three Papers at IPS Seminar in Denver Colorado

Published on

Resodyn Corporation staff will present three technical  papers at the International Pyrotechnics Society seminar on June 13 in Denver Colorado.  Staff has been asked to present at a special section dedicated to Resodyn Acoustic Mixers (RAM), in recognition of its growing prominence in the international energetics industry.


The International Pyrotechnics Society holds biennial seminars at various locations around the globe, providing experts in the pyrotechnic field the latest and most up to date information in the science and technology of energetic materials.

Peter A. Lucon, Scott L. Coguill, and Zachary R. Martineau will present a paper on static discharge, entitled “Electrostatic Generation and Methods to Mitigate Electrostatic Discharge while using the ResonantAcoustic ® Mixer.” The paper will investigate build up of charges for solid-solid mixing using the LabRAM.


A paper entitled “Temperature Control for ResonantAcoustic Mixing Processes,” will also be presented by Z.R. Martineau and S.L. Coguill. Resodyn Acoustic Mixers has developed a jacketed vessel for the LabRAM that allows users to maintain a specific temperature.  This paper will discuss mixing applications that require temperature control, either by removing heat or adding heat, by use of the jacketed vessel. 


A paper entitled “Vessel Geometry and Fluid Properties Influencing Mix Behavior for ResonantAcoustic ® Mixing Processes” will be the final paper presented at the IPS seminar. Authors S.L. Coguill and Z.R. Martineau will be the presenters of this topic. They will discuss mixing behaviors influenced by the geometry of the mix vessel. The benefits of using a proper vessel for a specific mix application will be the main focus of this presentation.


ResonantAcoustic ® Mixing technology functions by producing a low-frequency acoustic wave that propagates through the entire mix material causing both bulk flow and micro-scale mixing.  In addition to the energetics community prominent companies from across the world in a broad range of industries are discovering that this mechanically and energy efficient approach to mixing can reduce labor as much as 85%, eliminates the potential for cross contamination, reduces cleanup time, eliminates the use of harsh solvents, and can even facilitate mixing in the end use container.
