  • Blending and drying high density powders
    Consider the benefits of blending and drying dense powders in a double planetary mixer..
  • Reduce foaming and air entrapment during mixing.
    Foaming and air entrapment are common phenomena encountered in many mixing processes. Different applications call for different solutions, including addition of chemical defoamers, mixing under vacuum and high-speed sub-surface powder induction..
  • Benefits and techniques of vacuum mixing.
    Mixing under vacuum offers numerous benefits including elimination of unsightly voids in the finished product, improvement of dispersion quality, degassing, enhanced drying at lower temperatures and sub-surface addition of raw materials. Fine-tuning vacuum mixing techniques leads to the optimization of these benefits.
  • Vertical blender/dryers deliver high drying rates with negligible risk of product attrition.
    Vertical blender/dryers designed for vacuum operation offer a better alternative to non-agitated dryers such as ovens and tray dryers, delivering significantly higher drying rates per unit heating area. Vertical blender/dryers can also handle a variety of feed forms including slurries and pastes which other types of agitated dryers cannot accommodate. Finally, the gentle mixing action supplied by a vertical blender/dryer minimizes product attrition which is a concern in some applications.
