CONTINUOUS MIXING AND GRANULATION IN A HORIZONTAL SYSTEM
Our Ploughshare® Mixers for continuous operation use the fluid bed principle introduced to industrial mixing systems by Lödige. The mixing tools are adapted specifically to their respective applications. The throughput volumes of this mixing system are high and can be varied based on retention time, filling level and component properties.
Separation of particles makes addition of liquids and enveloping of particles easy, even in a continuous process. The continuous process can be performed at varying filling levels without any impact on the mixing quality. The mixing tools are set so that there is constant remixing for the duration of the retention time, before the finished mix is guided toward further processing steps through the discharge opening. The size of the discharge opening set by a slide or adjustable weir has a significant effect on the retention time. The system can easily compensate for dosage fluctuations caused by the machine line.
