Dispensers and Shakers


Helios Tinting team can help you with their experience and knowledge when choosing the right mixing equipment. The choice is personalized to the customer possibilities and needs.

There are many factors, which influence on dispenser selection like type and number of colorants, colorant consumption, type of customers, possibility to widen their range, logistics, price…Dispensers can be technically divided according to type of the pump: bellow pump, piston pump and gear pump technology and they can have sequential or simultaneous dosing.

We are developing and producing different sets of colorants. Each set is tested on different dispensers with various pump technology. Therefore, we can suggest to our customer, which pump technology is best for them.

DECORATIVE COLORANTS: HG MIX ACRYLIC & HG MIX SOLVENT

For decorative coatings we suggest automatic dispensers with bellow or piston pump. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages.

SHAKERS & GIROSCOPIC MIXERS

Difference between shakers and mixers is in their movement. This equipment is strongly connected to the dispensers. After dosing colorants in the base, you must homogenize the paint to get desired shade.

For easier decision what is best for our customer, you can check table below.

Shaker Giroscopic mixer
Mixing range 5 – 40 cm /40 kg 8.6 – 48 cm / 40 kg
Mixing more cans at once
High viscosity product (plasters)
Can < 10L (< 22 cm)
Mixing in the storage – 20L cans

We would like to recommend:

VIBRATIONAL SHAKERS

  • E shake (industrial standard)
  • I shake (advanced; automatic selection of speed and time according of the product weight)

GIROSCOPIC MIXERS

  • I mix (suitable for POS, automatic recognition of weight and height)
  • I mix M2M (advanced, maximum mixing amount,..)
