A local high-tech firm takes the national stage tomorrow.
Resodyn Corporation in Butte is presenting three papers on its method of mixing in Denver, Colorado.
Resodyn uses acoustic energy to mix substances at low frequencies with high acoustic energy. This form of mixing is unique because there are no blades within the mixing chamber. RAM mixing reduces the mixing time and the number of steps one has to take in the mixing process. All of the materials can be added at one time and easily mixed within the chamber.
Peter Lucon, technical director of Resodyn, wrote a paper to present at the International Pyrotechnics Society seminar on Wednesday, explaining Resodyn's mixing technology.
"Resodyn does a gamut of research and development and we're product oriented, so everything that we do that's research, we always have product in mind. So we're trying to develop products that can be used tomorrow. That we can self-sustain our company and that we can self-sustain Butte as a community and throughout the world," Lucon said.
On Wednesday after the RAM mixing presentation, the Denver audience will hear a presentation on jacketed vessels for users that must maintain a specific temperature when they are mixing their materials.
