We calculate exact convergence times to reach random bipartite entanglement for various random protocols. The eigenproblem of a Markovian chain governing the process is mapped to a spin chain, thereby obtaining exact expression for the gap of the Markov chain for any number of qubits. For protocols coupling nearest neighbor qubits and CNOT gate the mapping goes to XYZ model while for U(4) gate it goes to an integrable XY model. For coupling between a random pair of qubits the mapping is to an integrable Lipkin-Meshkov-Glick model. In all cases the gap scales inversely with the number of qubits, thereby improving on a recent bound in [Phys.Rev.Lett. 98, 130502 (2007)].
