ROTARY BATCH MIXERS

Specialized Models and Options to Exceed Your Requirement

Sanitary Models

Sanitary Rotary Batch Mixers offer numerous features that prevent material contamination and allow rapid, thorough wash down required for pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and food applications:

  • Internal mixing flights are spaced for easy access and continuously welded to the drum wall, and are configured for complete material discharge as well as complete drainage following wash down
     
  • All internal welds have minimum 0.25 in. (6.35 mm) radius, and are polished to 80 grit as standard. Available with polishes up to 240 grit
     
  • CIP (Clean-In-Place) spray line with nozzle for convenient cleaning and sanitizing
  • All product contact surfaces constructed of #304 or #316 stainless steel, in #2B Mill Finish standard with options available for #4 or #7 polish. USDA Dairy suitable upon request
     
  • External seal resides out of mixing drum and is easily removed
     
  • Support structure and guards available in #304 stainless steel construction

Industrial and Abrasion-Resistant Models

MUNSON® offers Rotary Batch Mixers for demanding industrial applications such as concrete premix, ceramics, powdered metal, fertilizers, plastics and catalysts. Also offered are "GB" models for glass batching, refractories and other poor-flowing, highly abrasive materials. These extreme-duty machines produce uniform blends containing numerous ingredients in 1 to 3 minutes, discharge completely in minimum time with no residual, and operate quietly and vibration-free.

Like all MUNSON Rotary Batch Mixers, these machines allow rapid cleaning while minimizing

power requirements, even when mixing exceptionally heavy materials with bulk densities exceeding 200 lbs/cu ft (3.2 gm/cc).

Ideal for basic batch mixing systems as well as integrated, automated operation, these units can be equipped with flexible connections and radial seals to assure dust-tight operation, and hardened, easy-to-replace wear plates to protect areas prone to abrasion.

Optional Intensifier promotes uniform dispersion of non-free-flowing and other difficult-to-blend materials.

The optional Intensifier promotes uniform dispersion of non-free-flowing and other difficult-to-blend materials, imparting shear into the batch to break apart agglomerates and separate non-free-flowing materials into discreet particles. It is also fully accessible and removable for cleaning and sanitizing.

Heating or Cooling Applications

MUNSON offers Rotary Batch Mixers with jackets for connection to liquid heaters or chillers, or with ports for introducing heated, cooled or moisturized air directly into the batch, allowing the temperature and moisture levels of materials to be altered or maintained during loading, mixing and discharging cycles.

 

CIP Sanitizing
