The company's Rotary Batch Mixer blends dry bulk tea and coffee materials quickly and gently, yielding uniform blends regardless of disparities in ingredient sizes, shapes or bulk densities with little or no material degradation.
Constructed of stainless steel finished to sanitary standards, the Munson rotary batch mixer model 700-TH-140-SS with an integral spray line offers the uniform distribution of liquid additions to dry bulk solids in trace amounts to large volumes in one to three min.
The new Munson Rotary Batch Mixer with an integral spray line allows uniform distribution of liquid additions to dry bulk solids in trace amounts to large volumes in 1-3 minutes.
A rotary batch mixer with integral lump breaker is said to provide inline deagglomeration of compacted bulk materials before blending batches gently with total uniformity in one to three minutes.
The 700-THX-50-ARI Rotary Batch Mixer blends abrasive materials in one to three minutes with minimized wear or product degradation.
* Micro mixer: Randcastle also showed a new downsized batch mixer that can process a single gram.
Idaho Milling reduced its glue extender production time from 2 hours to 20 minutes per batch cycle by replacing its existing ribbon blender with a Munson Model 700-TS-110-MS rotary batch mixer. In addition to increased product quality, the company said it was able to practically eliminate residual material in the machine after each batch.
Bulk solids are charged into the feed hopper while liquids are introduced into the batch mixer. The inline mixer acts like a pump and recirculates the liquid; when the solids inlet valve is opened, the rotor draws powders into the incoming liquid stream and expels the resulting dispersion through the stator openings at high velocity.
Mixing of powders in a batch mixer generally is not so straight forward as compared to mixing gasses or liquids.
In practice, mixing of the polymer blend constituents typically takes place in an internal batch mixer or extruder depending on the chemical, macrostructural, and rheological behaviors of the blend components (1), (2).
