Model HM-165-AR mixes asphalt, coatings, resins, adhesives and other abrasive, sticky or tacky compounds, slurries, emulsions and pastes that require high heat to maintain consistency. Its horizontal, cylindrical vessel with a single agitator is supported by externally mounted flange block bearings. It can blend at rates to 2000 cu ft/h without sacrificing retention time for homogeneous blending.
