There are many different types of mixing equipment that available in the market. Each developed to meet certain applications that are needed in mixing process. Here are some popular models of mixing equipment:
Having an inner and an outer pair of helical ribbons, ribbon blenders are horizontal trough-shaped mixers. The ribbons’ counter-current flow provides effective blending of dry or semi-dry ingredients as they rotate in opposing directions. In order to mix powders, granules, and other similar materials uniformly, ribbon blenders are frequently used in the pharmaceutical, chemical, and food industries.
Paddle mixers are often referred to as agitator mixers. It contains a revolving shaft with paddles or blades inside. These mixers are frequently employed for delicately blending or mixing materials that are prone to degradation or fragility. In the food, medicine, and cosmetic sectors, paddle mixers are frequently used.
V Shaped Mixer:
A unique design of mixing blender that comes up with a glass door is called V Blender. It composed of mixing tank, frame, plexiglass door, control panel system and other components. It can mix evenly and use widely for dry powder and granular materials. V blender is simple, reliable, and easy to clean and a good choice for those industries in the fields of chemical, pharmaceutical, food and other industries. It can produce a solid-solid mixture. It consists of a work-chamber connected by two cylinders forming a “V ” shape.
Double Cone Mixer:
Double cone mixer is mainly used for the intimate dry mixing of free-flowing solids. The materials are fed into the mixing chamber via quick-open feed port manually or by vacuum conveyor. With the 360-degree rotation of mixing chamber, materials are completely mixed with high degree of homogeneity. Normal cycle times are typically in the range of 10 minutes. You can set the mixing time what you want on the control panel depends on your product liquidity.
The liquid mixer is for low speed stirring, high dispersion, dissolving, and blending the different viscosities of liquid and solid products. The machine is appropriate for pharmaceutical emulsification. Cosmetic and fine chemical products, particularly those with a high matrix viscosity and solid content.
Structure: consists of the main emulsifying pot, a water pot, an oil pot, and a work-frame.
It is useful to mix powders, viscous materials, liquids, and Paste, etc. It discharges without residue.
In a planetary mixers’, the mixing instrument (often a beater, whisk, or paddle) revolves around a bowl or other vessel that spins on its axis. It is especially suited for dough, batters, and other viscous materials and produces thorough mixing. In the bakery, pastry, and food processing industries, planetary mixers are frequently used.
These are only a few examples of the numerous mixing machine types that are used in different sectors. The materials being mixed, the required mixing intensity, batch size, and process requirements, have a role in choosing of mixing equipment.
