The continuous mixer is based on mechanically generated turbulent fluidized bed process, patented by Lödige. During this process, the Ploughshare® shovels rotate close to the wall in a horizontal, cylindrical drum. Their peripheral speed and geometric shape is rated such that they take the mixing components off the drum wall and toss them into the free mixing compartment from the product bed. Due to the continuous mixing of the entire product, intensive blending is thus achieved even at extensive material throughputs. Transport of the product is ensured by the special shape and arrangement of the mixing elements. In this manner, excellent homogeneity and consistent reproducibility of the final product are achieved during short mixing or retention times of only 25 to 60 seconds.
In addition to its exceptional efficiency, part of the sophisticated mixer concept is the universal applicability of the machine. Beyond the processing of dry, powdery, granular or fibrous solids, it can be equipped for numerous other mixing tasks. Liquids can be added to moisten the product components, and pastes and liquids can also be processed. In addition, the installation of choppers in the mixing drum permits agglomerates to be opened up and targeted granulation during the mixing process. Further equipment options are a heated or cooled drum, head pieces and a shaft, as well as an axially split mixing drum for short maintenance intervals that permits the removal of the complete mixing mechanism in the shortest time possible.
