Conical mixer for particularly fast batch changes


Conical mixer for particularly fast batch changes

Modern crop protection chemicals are the results of many successive stages of synthesis. Finally they are processed in high-performance powder mixers and then filled and packed. The active ingredients are of a high purity and are present in an extremely high concentration. Against this background the user’s requirement characteristics are roughly as follows:

• ideal mixture qualities and micro-fine deagglomeration
• short mixing times
• easily controllable energy input for the retention of the formulations obtained from the compaction process
• high-level discharge ability, in the ideal case up to 100%
• usability for varying filling levels from 10 to 100%, taking into consideration that some
• components are ground micro-fine in the air-jet mill and are strongly fluidised
• hygienic apparatus design with regard to regularly performed wet cleaning
• gastight execution, suitable for over-pressure
• Atex conformity
• compact, space-saving design

There are tendencies in the industry to carry out such preparation steps in smaller batches with a substantially shortened mixing time. amixon GmbH has defined the resulting requirements for the mixer as a development task and has created a new mixing system on the basis of the amixon® mixing technology with helical mixing tools. These mixers are available in single- and twin-shaft versions. Despite low rotational speeds the mixing tools achieve ideal mixing qualities within just 20 to 60 seconds. Rotationally symmetrical closing elements lower a few centimetres and allow complete discharge within a few seconds. This makes it possible to homogenise large volumetric flows with small mixers.
