In mixing plants that process dry materials, water is reluctant to tolerate. Water or high humidity in the ambient air can negatively influence the powder quality; especially if bulk materials are hygroscopic. Quality assurance goes out of control when microbiological processes are unintentionally triggered in the mix that contaminate the powder and ambient air. In this respect, the following applies in almost general terms: Companies that process and mix powdery goods usually want to avoid having to wet-clean their mixers. In this respect, opportunities will be sought to dry-clean the devices. In many cases, it is even possible to dispense with manual cleaning if the mixer is hygienically designed.
Many bulk solids can only be produced if the mixing plant can be wet cleaned:
this list is without any claim to completeness
By way of example, this also involves the following items:
and ComDisc® ensure good residual discharge. This means that (almost) all the
mix is utilized right from the start and a lot of washing water is saved. Other
aspects relate to the design of the inspection doors and their seals, OmgaSeal®
seals particularly close to the product - technically free of dead space, the
type and design of the shaft seals, lip seals glide on ceramic shaft coatings -
they work optionally with or without gas flushing, the type and design of the
dead space-free discharge valve, DosiFlap® can save vertical installation space
and replace valves, the operating mode and design of the dust filtration during
filling and emptying of the mixer, the type of drying and disposal of the moist
vapors, ... and much more
In the amixon® pilot plant we have good conditions to optimize your mixing processes and cleaning regimes. Optionally, we will demonstrate various wet cleaning concepts to you.
