Twin Drum Mixer
Twin Drum Mixer consists of twin drums with two counter rotating rotors and specifically angled paddles. The rotors overlap in the centre of the mixer and the paddles completely sweep the bottom and mix all the material at the same time. In zone b the materials have a main movement counter clockwise at the perimeter of the mixer. Simultaneously there are movements in the fluidized zone a both up and down, left and right and back and forth, all the time with space between the particles allowing free and random movement. The interaction of the two zones is the key to the unique mixing technology as all particles are transported into a highly homogeneous mix. Mixer is very flexible in filling volume. The model number indicates the nominal filling level i. E. , the level just above the rotor shafts, and is not to be mistaken for the total mixing volume. From our nominal filling level of 100% variations from 40% to 140% can be tolerated with the same perfect mixing results. The mixing time may be a few seconds longer than normal when mixing very small or very large batches.
