Light Powder Mixing
Myers Engineering, Inc.
Company offers a tri-shaft mixing machine using a sweep and gate blade combination. This multi-shaft design handles many applications where the efficient wetting of finite powders determines the quality of the mix. Many variations of blade combinations allow for a wide variety of application successes. When using the helix style blade, the material is drawn down for superior vertical batch flow while the sweep blade moves the mass around the perimeter zones. Properly angled wipers serve a critical role clearing the product from the tank walls, aiding in uniform heat transfer throughout the tank. Adding a high-speed disperser blade creates the accelerated shear necessary to achieve uniform particle distribution. The results of this blade combination offer the user faster processing times with lower process temperatures. An added benefit when using the helix blade is final deaeration by running the helix in reverse.
