A food grade powder mixer has different types and features according to the food grade materials being used in mixing. It is commonly used in different materials, such as powders, powders with liquid, granular products, and solid materials.
Food Grade Powder Mixer Types and Working Methods
Food grade powder mixers have different types of machines according to the materials being used. For different powder materials, ribbon mixers, paddle mixers, and v mixers are perfect to use. For granular products and those with liquid or paste, ribbon powder mixers and paddle mixers are perfect for use.
With Spraying System
The food grade powder mixer can also be customized, and customers can also require the food grade powder mixer to be equipped with additional functions such as a spraying system that consists of a pump, a nozzle, and a hopper. Small amounts of liquid can be blended into a food grade powder material.
This results in a paste-type material at the end of the mixing process.
With Jacket System
A customer can customize a double jacket system for the food grade powder mixer. It has the cooling and heating functions of a double jacket, and it could be intended to keep the mixing material warm or cold.
Put a layer in the tank, put the medium into the middle layer, and make the mixed material cold or hot. It is usually cooled by water and heated by hot steam or electricity.
Mixing with flour and pigment
The food grade powder mixer is used to mix flour and pigment. A ribbon mixer agitator is made up of an inner and outer helical agitator. The outer ribbon moves flour and pigment one way, while the inner ribbon moves flour and pigment the other way.
The ribbons rotate approximately to move the materials both radially and laterally to ensure the blends in short cycle times.

1. How Long Does it Take to Ship the Mixer from China?
It takes 7–10 days to produce a standard model. If you want to customize your food grade powder mixer, your machine can be done in 30–45 days. Shipped by air, it takes 7–10 days. Shipping by sea takes 10–60 days. It depends on your location.
2.What Industries Usually Use Food Grade Powder Mixers?
Food industry- food products, food ingredients, food additives, food processing AIDS in various fields, and in the pharmaceutical intermediate, brewing, biological enzymes, food packaging materials are also widely used.
Agricultural industry- Pesticide, fertilizer, feed and veterinary medicine, advanced pet food, new plant protection production, and in cultivated soil, microbial utilization, biological compost and desert greening.
Chemical industry- Epoxy resin, polymer materials, fluorine materials, silicon materials, nanomaterial and other rubber and plastic chemical industry; Silicon compounds and silicates and other inorganic chemicals and various chemicals.
Cosmetic industry– The eye shadow powders, paste cream and a variety of other cosmetic goods are all processed with this machine. The mirror polished surface makes the cosmetic materials not stick in the tank.
Medical Industry-In the medical field, the industrial paddle mixer is beneficial for mixing magnesium chloride powders, talc powders and all other types of medical powders and small granules.
Battery industry- Battery material, lithium battery anode material, lithium battery cathode material and carbon material raw material production.
Comprehensive industry- Car brake material, plant fiber environmental protection products, edible tableware, etc.
Plastic Industry- Plastics industry: mixing of masterbatches, mixing of pellets, plastic powders, and many more.
Building Materials industry- Components and Additives, Boards / Bricks / Pre-Fabricated Parts, Mortar/Plaster for Flooring/Blast Furnace Slag Cement, Adhesives and Multi-colored Fillers and many more.
And many more industries are using food grade powder mixers.
3.How Many Operators are Needed to Operate?
One operator is enough to operate the food grade powder mixer in small sizes but if the machine is in big capacity you can ask for help.
4.Is the Food Grade Powder Mixer Water-Proof?
The standard design food grade powder mixer is not fully water-proof. You can clean the tank inside by water washing freely, but the electrical control box and motor & gear are not water-proof, you need to wipe with dry or wet cloth. However, these parts can be customized to water-proof design, to make a stainless steel shade to cover the control box button, and the motor & gearbox, then you can wash the whole machine by water freely. This requirement should be informed before placing the order.
5.What Is the Application of a Food Grade Powder Mixer?
A food grade powder mixer is essential in the processing of a wide range of products. It can customize mixing solutions for construction, agricultural chemicals, food, polymers, pharmaceuticals, and other industries by mixing powders with liquids and granules. Ingredients are properly mixed using a food grade powder mixer.
6.What Is the Difference Between a Home Mixer and an Industrial Mixer?
Home mixer is sometimes known as a stand mixer, is a kitchen appliance that rotates a set of “beaters” in a bowl containing the food or liquids to be mixed using a gear-driven mechanism. While industrial mixer are the mixer that is used by industries such as food industry, chemical industry, agricultural industry and etc.
7.What Is the Difference Between Different Types of Mixers?
Difference between different types of food grade powder mixer:
A ribbon powder mixer, also called a single ribbon mixer or double ribbon mixer, has a unique design of a horizontal U-shaped casing with a rotating agitator. The agitator is made up of two helical ribbons that let convective motion flow in two directions, resulting in powder and bulk solids mixing.
A paddle mixer is also called a single-shaft paddle mixer, double-shaft paddle mixer, or paddle mixer opening type. A double-shaft paddle mixer has two shafts with counter-rotating blades, while a single-shaft paddle mixer has a different angle of blades to mix up the product inside the machine, causing cross-mixing. A compact design with rotational shafts filled with hoppers achieves paddle mixer opening type mixing consistency of up to 99 percent.
V mixer consists of a work-chamber connected by two cylinders forming a “V ” shape. It can be mixed evenly and used widely for dry powder and granular materials. It can produce a solid-solid mixture.
8.What Is the Most Popular Mixer Type?
The most popular type of food grade powder mixer is the ribbon mixer because this machine is very useful for industries such as food industry, chemical industry, agricultural industry and many more. It helps to lessen the time of mixing and brings you higher efficiency in mixing materials.
9.How to Install After Purchase?
When you receive the food grade powder mixer, you just need to unpack the crates, and connect the machine’s electricity power , then the machine can work. It is very easy to make machines work for any user.
10.How to Confirm If the Machine Material is SS304 or SS316?
304 stainless steel is a multipurpose stainless steel that has a higher rust resistance than stainless steels in the 200 series. It is also better to have a high temperature resistance. The corrosion resistance of 304 stainless steel is outstanding, as is the resistance to intergranular corrosion. While 316 stainless steel the corrosion resistance and high temperature strength of 316 stainless steel have greatly improved. It has a high temperature resistance of 1200-1300 degrees and can be used in harsh environments.
11.What Is the Working Principle of a Food Grade Powder Mixer?
Ribbon powder mixer has ribbon agitator and a U-shaped chamber for highly- balanced mixing of materials. The ribbon agitator is made up of inner and outer helical agitators. The inner ribbon moves the material from center to outside while the outer ribbon moves the material from two sides to the center and it is combined with rotating direction when moving the materials. A food grade powder mixer gives a short time on mixing while providing a better mixing effect.
V Mixer is made up of two cylinders that are positioned in a “V” shape. An intensifier bar can be added to the V mixer which can help in mixing and breaking up materials. The amount of material put into the v mixer has an impact on its efficiency. The v mixer recommended blender’s fill-up volume is 40 to 60% of the overall mixing volume. For this the materials inside the machine can move freely and result in a good mixture.
Paddle mixer the material is thrown from the bottom to the top of the mixing tank by paddles at various angles. Creating a homogeneous mixing effect differs from different sizes and density of the materials. The rotating paddles break and combine the bulk of product in a sequential manner, causing each piece to flow quickly and intensely through the mixing tank.
