Horizontal batch mixers MBM

Homogeneous mixtures of bulk materials

When it comes to manufacturing homogeneous mixtures, particularly in the food, chemical and plastics industries, the MBM horizontal batch mixers can be used. They can be integrated into existing in-line processes or used as a stand-alone system.

Batch mixer MBM

Function

The products that are to be mixed are poured through a large-volume inlet opening into the horizontal mixing drum. In the process the mixing paddles of the mixer rotate, create a fluidised bed and as a result of convection ensure a rapid and thorough mixing of components that have different particle sizes and bulk densities. Depending on the formulation and product properties the mixing time per batch is between 60 and 300 seconds.

Areas of use

The MBM batch mixers are suited to all types of dry mixtures (powder, granules) and to dry media with the addition of liquid to moisten or to achieve adequate granulation, for example for

  • foodstuff
  • feedstuff
  • chemical products
  • synthetic materials

Standard design

  • Stable construction with low dead space, without removable parts in the product area
  • Material: stainless steel 1.4301
  • Glass bead blasted surface
  • Shaft sealing as a result of packing glands that can be adjusted externally
  • Large inspection and cleaning flap protected by a limit switch
