Tilt Type Kneader

How the Tilt Type Kneader Works

The sigma blade mixer includes two blades that rotate toward each other at differential speeds. Each blade moves the material in opposite directions thereby providing excellent cross mixing of all raw materials. The blades pass the trough walls and each other at close clearances. This close clearance action provides a shearing and tearing action that is beneficial to the size reduction of solids such as rubber and plastic pellets.

Once the mix cycle is complete the trough of the mixer is tilted and the mixture is discharged to a secondary container for transfer to packaging or to downstream operations.

    • The Sigma or "Z" Blade is the most popular and universal blade design used with Kneaders. This blade provides good horizontal transfer of all materials in the mixing trough.
    • The Knobben blade is used for the mastication of highly viscous masses that contain large blocks of polymers.
    • Banbury Blades are primarly used in conjunction with ram covers. The ram cover/banbury blade combination provides the maximum possible shear rates to the mixture.
    • The cutter blade mounted at the discharge helps to pelletize materials during discharge.
    • A round hole die is available in many shapes and sizes. This enables a user to discharge into a particular shape for further processing or packaging.
    • Replacable wear resistant blade tips are available for use in special applications that include highly abrasive materials such as abrasives for grinding wheels.
    • Trough saddles can be supplied as a replaceable component. If the mixer is going to be used to mix abrasive materials, this option hould be considered as the saddles are the highest wear section of the trough.
    • The entire trough can be lined with abrasion resistant materials.

    • The largest opening possible is restricted only by the diameter of the discharge screw. This die allows the fastest disarge rates of all the dies that are available.
