UTICA, NY A new "MX-5-SS" Miniature Rotary Batch Mixer from Munson Machinery blends ingredients in ratios as extreme as one part per million with 100% uniformity in less than three minutes, regardless of disparities in the bulk densities, particle sizes or flow characteristics of batch ingredients.
The mixer features a rotating drum with proprietary mixing flights that tumble, turn and fold material gently as well as rapidly. Unlike stationary mixing vessels that leave a residual "heel" of material after discharge, the rotating vessel and internal flights lift and direct the entire batch through a plug gate valve for complete evacuation with no residual material, improving product quality and process control while facilitating rapid, thorough cleaning.
An optional "swivel feed chute" simplifies manual dumping of batch ingredients through an access door. Also, an optional discharge spout helps direct the discharging product flow into customer containers.
The mixer has a drum capacity of 10 cu ft (283 liters), and a batch capacity of 5 cu ft (141 liters) and 500 lb (227 kg), and is equally effective in blending of batches that comprise between 5 to 100 percent of rated capacity, offering flexibility in laboratory and production environments.
Miniature Rotary Batch Mixers range in maximum capacity from 0.25 to 15 cu ft (7 to 425 liters) or 2 to 1200 lbs (1 to 544 kg).
