In this product digression, we will focus on the 10 m³ amixon® HM twin-shaft mixer for the final homogenization of dietetic products. A batch often involves more than 40 different components.
This 10 m³ amixon® HM 10 000 mixer is used for the final homogenisation of dietetic products. There are often more than 40 different components involved in a batch.
The size of your production mixer should always be matched to the typical order quantities and your internal logistics. If large quantities of the same product are produced regularly, the advantages of a large powder mixer may dominate. A large mixer is particularly advantageous if the formulation contains many different individual components. Each individual raw material must be accurately weighed and transported to the mixer. In the case of a large batch, the number of individual weighings is reduced.
For the purpose of quality assurance, you only need to take one sample of the mix per batch after the mixing process. Only one laboratory analysis is required. The laboratory costs are lower. Only one reserve sample per batch is kept.
The system concept shown here can be used for a wide range of filling levels from approx. 1 to 10 m³. It is possible to mix complex powder mixtures effectively, particularly gently and hygienically! The mixing quality achieved corresponds to an ideal distribution. The mixing quality can not be further improved in practice.
The selection of the powder mixer shown above results from economic considerations. Users report 5 benefits from their experience with amixon® twin shaft mixers:
Depending on the classification of the mixed products, which are homogenised one after the other in the mixer, cleaning takes place dry or wet. The mixer has four large (1) inspection doors. An inspection door is installed in the housing of each outlet fitting (2).
