Instructions For Use
What are the benefits of using a Cavex Alginate Mixer instead of mixing alginate manually?
Mixing with the Cavex Alginate Mixer offers several advantages as opposed to manual mixing.
– The mixer creates a smooth, homogeneous and bubble-free alginate mix, ensuring a more detailed impression.
– Standardization throughout the dental practice: not everybody is proficient at mixing
manually, but everybody will be able to deliver a consistently perfect quality using the
– The mixer enables much faster mixing than the manual process, leaving more time to
attend to the patient and/or other tasks.
– No risk of a reaction with gypsum because of the CaSO4, which is used for the hardening
of both alginate and gypsum. In manual mixing there is a greater risk of such a reaction,
which may result in the failure of the cast.
– The hardening time can easily be adjusted using the timer setting on the mixer: an 8
second setting ensures more processing time, whereas hardening is much faster with a 12
second setting. The setting can easily be adjusted per type of impression, per patient and
for summer/winter application.
– The alginate mixer is easy to use with just the touch of a button. The device is also easy to
How should the Cavex Alginate Mixer be used?
1. Put 2 to 3 spoonful’s of alginate into the mixing bowl.
2. Apply the appropriate quantity of water using the measuring bottle.
3. Use the stirring stick to pre-stir the mixture; this makes it easier to clean the mixer afterwards and is important to prolong the lifetime of the device.
4. Screw the cover onto the mixing bowl and place the bowl in the mixer.
5. Close the Alginate Mixer, set the mixing time to 8, 10 or 12 seconds depending on the
required hardening time, and press Start.
6. After mixing, remove the mixing bowl from the machine and pour the alginate mixture
into the impression tray in a single movement. This will avoid air inclusion.
How should the Cavex Alginate Mixer be set up?
1. Remove the locking bolts on the lower side of the mixer. (Make sure you keep these bolts
to use for any future transport.)
2. Place the mixer on a solid, stable and even surface.
3. Check that the voltage indicated on the device corresponds with the mains power and
connect the mixer using the power feed cable supplied.
What is the best way to clean the Cavex Alginate Mixer?
Dissolve a little Cavex GreenClean (alginate solvent) in water according to the instructions provided on the Cavex GreenClean packaging. The mixer can be cleaned easily using the stirring stick and a tissue with the Cavex GreenClean solvent. To ensure a long life for your Alginate Mixer, store the cleaned device in a clean and dry place.
How should the mixing bowls be cleaned?
The mixing bowls can either be cleaned with a tissue or by rinsing them under a running tap. Cavex GreenClean can be used to remove more persistent soiling. The mixing bowls should not be cleaned in the thermal disinfector due to the risk of deformation and roughening of the inner surface.

What materials can be mixed using the Cavex Alginate Mixer?
