MIXOMAT drum blenders by FUCHS Maschinen AG have been used by renowned firms all over the world. The chemical, food and pharmaceutical industry use them for blending or pre-blending bulk products. Most of the bulk products, whether powder or granules, but at least free-flowing, are easily blended.
The new tilting drum blender MIXOMAT C-SE with linear drive has been designed for 100 to 400 litre drums and is touch screen controlled.
The following operations can be performed: start, stop, drum lifting, depositing and slowly tilting, setting blending time and rotation speed, pre-programming and selecting the recipe by means of the PLC controller.
The way in which the blenders work is simple: after having filled the blender drum with no more than 70 % of its capacity, the drum is tilted around its own axis for a preselected period if time (for most products, between 5 and 10 minutes). As the blenders drum is mounted at an inclined position on its holder, a three-dimensional blending effect is achieved. Additionally, the blending process can be accelerated by fixing a baffle onto the drum cover. Users find this blending process very effective – despite or perhaps precisely because of its simplicity. Unlike many other blending techniques, the blending is carried out without leaving trace residues.
Control languages: English, German, French, Spanish and Dutch.
Two holders are available: HR and SP
The HR holder secures the drum with a quick-action clamping fastener preventing any undesired opening of the holder fastener. The SP holder is fitted with two Spanset belts and can best be used with drums of varying diameter (+/- 5 mm). The MIXOMAT C-SE can also be fitted with a second holder for drums with capacities of up to 50 litres.
The MIXOMAT C-SE is made of stainless steel with ground surfaces. The modular concept will shortly include an ATEX blender version on wheels for zones 2/22 or 1/21.
MIXOMAT C-SE is simple to use and offers a wide range of accessories, guaranties a gentle blending of the product, resource friendly cleaning and easy maintenance in accordance with worker's protection standards.
