The vertical mixers are widely used for several applications in: chemical, pharmaceutical, foodstuffs, fodder and mining industries.
These machines are suitable to mix both dry powders and powders with liquid additives. They can be used also for the following processes:
- vacuum drying
In this way the agitator, which generally consists in a worm screw, conveys product from bottom to the top and creates a horizontal motion flow.
Besides, the conical shape of the mixing vessel allows to obtain a different motion speed of particles which depends on their distance from the bottom where particles move more speedily.
Vertical mixers grant particular advantages:
- low power consumption because the mixing screw does not act on the whole product simultaneously;
- dust seals not immersed into the product;
- minimum heating of substances;
- soft mixing action;
- total emptying without product retention;
- possibility to work with product volume lower than the maximum design capacity;
- easy to be thoroughly cleaned.
The horizontal mixers are well known and widely used for several applications in chemical, pharmaceutical, foodstuffs, fodder and mining industries.
Mixing takes place by means of a ribbon agitator that causes product to move following crossed lines.
Mixers series RB and TS are single or double shaft respectively and can be supplied with a capacity up to 10.000 liters.
By adding a lower “V” shaped hopper, having the same capacity as the mixing tank, it is possible to work continuously avoiding discharging intervals.
Some models have been properly designed for the treatment of potential explosive substances according to the 94/9/EC “ATEX” directive and are supplied with relevant conformity declaration.
