Single shaft ploughshare mixers with semi-sholves are composed by a mixing chamber with one or more inlets, an outlet with discharge valve, reconstructing the mixing chamber internal profile and a vent. The GVF Impianti semi-sholves achieve excellent results in terms of mixing speed and uniformity of mixtures for both regular and irregular processes.
The shovels rotate as mixing elements in special arrangement on the mixer shaft. The size, number and positioning, geometric shape and peripheral speed of the mixing elements are coordinated in such a way that they produce a three-dimensional movement of the components.
The resultant turbulence in the mix, whereby all the product is constantly involved in the mixing process, prevents the formation of dead center or low-movement zones in the mixing drum and ensures high speed, precision mixing.
In some cases, additional stirrers can be installed to obtain the desired mixing effect. Separately driven, high-speed stirrers can be installed to disperse agglomerations and control granulation during the mixing process.
GVF Impianti produces both horizontal ploughshare mixers for continuous and discontinuous duties type PMC and PMB.
