Finnish term or phrase: tasosekoittaja (chemistry)
What is a "tasosekoittaja" (or "tasosekoitin") in the context of a chemistry lab?

I've tried to see if "level mixer" is a term used in chem lab contexts in English, but I've found no convincing support for this so far.

Thanks

Explanation:
Main source: TEPA Term Bank (Finnish terminology Centre TSK)

The recommended form is actually "tasosekoitin" since instrument designations in Finnish typically end in -in whereas words ending in -aja/äjä usually denote human actors (the ones who operate the instruments).

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks. "tasosekoittaja" (with -ja rather than -in) is the term that I found in the text I was working on, so that's how I titled the thread..
