Highest mixing homogeneity and the hygienic design characterize the continuous mixers GCM made by Gericke. The series has now been further improved by the models type GCM ECB.
With the latest design it is possible to extract the drive and the mixer housing for easy access. The mixer has 3 operation positions:
- 1 Mixing position
- 2 Cleaning positions
The GCM 800 ECB and 1200 ECB are equipped with a cantilevered shaft and a shaft seal which can be dismantled completely in a very simple way. In the hygienic version, the parts in contact with the product are polished.
The mixer has no hollow bodies where residue can build up.
The experiences made with the mixers during the operation have been incorporated in the design of this latest model. For the user it means a remarkable improvement in regard of
accessibility to all components and excellent cleanability of the mixer.
The GCM mixer is suitable for the operation in ATEX zones.
Optionally the mixer can be delivered with heating/cooling jacket, different weir plates for the adjustment of the residence time and a pneumatic batch process unit. The new generation GCM ECB sets a new benchmark for continuous mixing.
Continuous mixing processes help to make to process flow more efficient. The energy consumption per output is low, the physical manipulation of the bulk material is minimal and therefore the risk for segregation can be eliminated.
For the accurate feeding of the ingredients into the continuous mixers, Gericke proposes its approved and adapted range of volumetric and gravimetric feeders.
In the Test Centres of Gericke it is possible to make continuous feeding and mixing trials.
It is as well possible to make tests with batch mixers and pneumatic conveying systems.
