These high-speed industrial mixers quickly blend, mix, and condition large batches of products including food products, powders, pharmaceuticals, refractory castables, spices, and more. They can also be used to process and condition hazardous and non-hazardous waste dust and industrial bi-products for disposal that meets environmental laws and restrictions.

Our product line of industrial mixers includes food grade and sanitary mixers, paddle mixers, planetary mixers, turbin mixers, and refractory mixers. Pug mills are also available but not recommended as pan style batch mixers are now the industry standard.
Foundries have extensive dust collection systems throughout their plants. Most of the collected dust is disposed of at a landfill. Prior to leaving the foundry, the dust is sometimes required to be conditioned to a dustless mixture before a landfill will accept it. This can be accomplished using an industrial mixer such as a large paddle mixer, Turbin mixer, or planetary style mixer.
This chemical blending and batching system was used for the toll blending of powder chemicals, including calcium carbonate. The final blended product was to be automatically packaged into bulk bags using a bulk bag filling machine. It could also be packaged into smaller bags using a valve bagging machine.
These industrial mixers are designed to mix difficult and abrasive materials such as fly ash, cement dust, heavy metals, frac sand additives, oil drilling fluids, bentonite, barite, iron ore, minerals, and color pigments. Five models are shown in the presentation with varying heights, capacity, and output.
Produce a uniform product in as little as 30 seconds with as little as 8% water or other reagent. An 86,000 square foot facility and $3.5 million inventory of parts keep you up and running, with 97% of the parts orders shipped within 24 hours. All of these mixers are made in the U.S.A.
This batching system was custom designed for 7 types of carbon black. They are all simultaneously fed into individual weigh hoppers. Small vibratory feeders meter the carbon black into 16 cubic feet, net weigh hoppers supplied with air-operated, fast acting roller slide gates.
Upon discharge, an air-powered industrial vibrator cleans the weigh hopper before the gate closes. The batch is then transferred by belt conveyor to a 16 cubic feet confirmation (check weigh) hopper, where the final weight is either accepted or rejected. Accepted batches go directly into an industrial mixer. If a batch is out of tolerance, it is rejected via a pantleg diverter into a portable storage container at floor level.
Bulk bag unloading station and five-ingredient net weigh hopper
This powder blending and batching system was built for a manufacturer of engineered refractory products. They required an automated system to blend and batch seven dry ingredients.
The customer had five existing exterior storage hoppers which where retrofitted with new screw conveyors. The screw conveyors transported their product into a five-ingredient net weigh hopper. In addition to the materials fed into the hopper, there are two loss-of-weight bulk bag unloading stations which are able to simultaneously dispense precise amounts of material. Both the net weigh hopper and the loss-of-weight unloading stations feed onto a collection conveyor for transport to the existing industrial mixer.
This powder blending system is used to mix dry ingredients by weight to create concrete products. Once the ingredients are unloaded into the system, they are conveyed to an industrial mixer.
The equipment consists of a big bag unloader on tank-type load cells, a 50 pound bag dump station with self-contained dust collector, a twin motor vibratory 2-speed feeder with an inclined corrugated side wall, and a cleated belt conveyor. All equipment was designed for dust-tight operation.
In the production of cement, there is a waste product collected from the hot gas discharge of a kiln. This waste material is commonly called Cement Kiln Dust, or CKD. Because there are limited markets for CKD, it is usually sent to surface impoundments or landfills for disposal.
This extremely fine, dry, and dusty powder is typically conditioned by adding water to the solids before loading into trucks for disposal. CKD can be difficult to get a consistent moisture content to ensure that all the dry solids are wetted to a dustless mixture.
A common method to condition the CKD is to use a continuous mixer, like a pug mill. Some common problems with pug mills for this type of application is either over saturation or dry pockets of dust. This inconsistent mixing process can lead to problems. If too much water is added, it can cause solids to harden as soon as the mixer is stopped, causing a headache for the maintenance personnel to break out the hardened dust from around the mixer shaft. Another common problem with over saturation is additional water weight that reduces the amount of solids transported in each load. This can be costly if shipping a long distance. Finally, if the mixture is too wet, it can drain on the roadway from certain types of trucks.
If the solids are under conditioned and still dry, this can cause dust escaping around the plant site or even as the trucks transport the solids down a public road. This is the main reason why the industrial mixer shown below was installed.
200 tons per hour Series II – Batch Mixer with load cells
A high speed, high intensity mixer guarantees a dustless mixture discharged into the trucks. Typically a Turbin, or pan style mixer, with paddles rotating at speeds up to 600 feet per minute can condition a batch of CKD in 30 seconds. This works because we control each batch by adding the same weight of solids, the same volume of water, and mixing this for the same amount of time. This process can be done at rates as high as 200 tons per hour @ 50 pounds per cubic foot.
A truck driver can start the mixing process from a simple control station mounted next to the truck station. Additional options like a rubber lined pan and automatic wash down system, reduce the operational time or maintenance personnel needed to clean and maintain the mixer.
