- Collaborative product development at six global testing centers
Which powder mixer is right for your process?
Ribbon mixer or paddle mixer? Inline mixer or cone mixer? From your raw ingredients to your manufacturing facilities, from hygienic regulations to the required mixing precision, many factors must be taken in account when choosing the appropriate powder mixing techniques and equipment. Here are some key factors to evaluate when selecting a powder mixer or blender:
Powder characteristics – How to mix powders evenly ultimately depends on the powders you need to mix. Is the powder sticky or free-flowing? Are the particles superfine or coarse? Do ingredients of varying particle sizes and textures need to be mixed together? amixon® engineers can advise you on the best powder mixing techniques for your application, and the best equipment for the job.
Continuous or batch production – Does your production process operate continuously or in batches? The advantages and disadvantages of continuous mixers vs. batch mixers depends on your product, facilities, and desired output.
Batch sizes – The volume of powders to be mixed can affect loading and discharge times, mixing techniques, change overs, and mixing time among other things. Our high-efficiency powder mixers can be constructed at a wide range of proportions for varying batch sizes and filling levels. From a small dry powder mixer to a thousand-liter tank, amixon® can engineer precisely the powder blending machine you need.
Processing needs – From agglomerating to dispersing, vacuum drying to moistening, the gentle homogenization of fragile ingredients to the high-speed deagglomeration of granular materials, different amixon® mixing systems perform different powder mixing techniques to help you achieve the desired mixing results and batch precision.
Cleaning and hygiene – Is cross contamination a concern for your product? Will the powder mixer need to be cleaned between batches? amixon® powder mixers are built with food-grade materials like stainless steel and grant full access to the mixing chamber and agitator shaft, making for especially easy CIP and fast drying.
Factory specifications – Your ideal powder mixing machine must be a perfect match for the space and resources available within your production facilities. amixon® mixing experts can advise you as to how our powder blending equipment will integrate with your upstream and downstream processes.
Where are powder mixing machines used?
Many of the products we interact with on a day-to-day basis were created in part by bulk solids processing. amixon® powder mixers can be found all over the world. Our industrial powder mixing equipment is used to make everything from food to plastics, make-up to animal feed, medicine to insecticides.
Powder mixing in the food industry
From processing raw materials to prepping mixtures for packaging, amixon® industrial powder mixers can boost performance and profitability at many junctures in the food manufacturing process.
Used to create baking mixes, cereals, spices, instant foods, and more, our ribbon blenders, agglomerators, and vacuum dryers adhere to the highest food safety and sanitation standards.
