We have below product ranges of continuous mixing machines for different process applications:
- rotary continuous mixer 旋转连续混料机
Low speed rotation, gentle action prevents material degradation, lowest energy consumption, accurate blend ratios to 99.9%, with or without liquid additions, in-line over long product runs. Delivers uniform blends — typically in one to two minutes residence time. Handles abrasive and corrosive products, and materials with high bulk densities.
- variable-intensive mixer 变速强力混料机
Infinitely adjustable rotor speed, together with variable-pitch paddles, allows fine-tuning of blending action, from slow-speed consistent progression of material through the cylindrical chamber, to high-speed "backwashing" of material through turbulent zones for rapid, high-shear interspersing of particles — with typical residence times of 20 to 30 seconds.
- ribbon/paddle/plow continuous mixer 螺带/桨叶/犁刀搅拌连续混料机
Ribbon/paddle/plow mixers are commonly used for batch process, but in certain application with proper design adjustment, it can also be a choice of continuous mixing, with or without heating, cooling or temperature keeping function.
- turbulizer 高剪切混料机
The Turbulizer is a continuous high shear paddle mixer. Paddle elements allow adjustment of angle and housing clearance. This feature, in combination with high paddle tip speeds, up to 13,000 ft./min., provides flexibility for control of residence time and the mix intensity or shear imparted on materials.
Although residence time can be controlled it remains very short, in the range of 2-30 seconds. Short residence time means the Turbulizer operates with a low material working volume. The result is a high production capacity machine that requires minimal floor space and head room for installation. The thin working layer of material in the mixer also promotes excellent indirect heat transfer efficiency in jacketed models and a self-cleaning effect that eliminates lost product on start up and shut down. Sanitary construction can easily be achieved due to gas purged split body seals and fully outboard bearing design.
A list of successful Turbulizer processes includes dry powder mixing, hydrating hard to wet powders, slurry mixing, coating, sterilization, crystallization, granulating, homogenizing, de-lumping and finishing, and coating. The mixing and dispersion efficiency of the Turbulizer is well exhibited in coating applications. In many cases, hard to wet proteins can be instantized with the addition of less than 1% of a lecithin surfactant. In a similar process Calcium carbonate materials can be insulated or effectively rendered insoluble with a coating of less than 1% of a stearate powder.
To achieve homogeneous blends, an accurate metering system is required to feed ingredients into the stationary material inlet of continous mixer.
For liquid additions and coatings, an optional spray line mounted above the material bed or mixer housing, sprays liquid onto the cascading material, assuring that every particle is exposed to the spray pattern, yielding uniform coatings.
