A 23" clearance from the valve outlet to the floor allows operators to position a bucket under the vessel to catch finished product after the mixing cycle.
Automatic control of molding sand parameters, including minimum humidity control, compaction and compression strength, while additionally scored will be more advanced measuring systems guarantee an additional opportunity to study parameters such weight as bentonite total, bentonite, active and ensuring the possibility of weight control and correction of its parameters during the mixing cycle.
At any stage of the mixing cycle, operators can fme-tune the observed flow turbulence and shear because the stirrers and dispersers are independently driven by two different motors.
After the mixing cycle, the vessel is rolled over to the discharge system.
Because each agitator is independently controlled, flow patterns and shear rates can be fine-tuned at any point during the mixing cycle.
After the mixing cycle is complete and the blender discharged, the main orbit arm parks automatically against a set of water spray nozzles recessed into the mixer wall and hot water is injected against the screw which rotates to ensure all the screw surfaces are cleaned.
