The new Miniature Rotary Batch Mixer model MX-1-SS from Utica, N.Y.-based Munson Machinery blends up to 28 litres of dry bulk ingredients, with or without liquid additions, in ratios down to one part per million with total uniformity in two to three minutes. It is able to do this regardless of disparities in the bulk densities, particle sizes or flow characteristics of batch ingredients.
The mixer is constructed primarily of stainless steel with brass components. Parts produced from other metals, such as the motor shaft, are shielded with stainless steel. It is also equipped with grounding lugs, and is powered by a gear-reduced TEXP (Totally Enclosed Explosion Proof) industrial electric motor which has a NEMA 7/9 junction box.
Proprietary mixing flights within the rotating drum gently tumble, turn, cut and fold material, and evacuate blended batches through a stationary plug gate valve with no segregation or residual “heel” of material remaining. Unrestricted access to all interior surfaces allows rapid cleaning and inspection. The company offers six Miniature Rotary Batch Mixer models, in maximum batch capacities of seven to 425 litres or one to 544 kg. www.munsonmachinery.com
