Continuous Ploughshare Mixers operate on the hurling and whirling principle introduced to mixing technology by Lödige. Equipped with mixing elements which can be adapted to individual requirements, this machine produces mixes of the highest quality.
The peripheral speed and geometric shape of ploughshare® shovels, rotating close to the wall of a horizontal, cylindrical drum, lift the mixing components from the product bed into the open mixing area and scoop material from the wall of the drum counteracting the centrifugal force. A fluid bed generated mechanically in this way, whereby all the product is constantly involved in the mixing process, ensures maximum mixing intensity at even the highest feed rates and shortest residence times. The specially shaped mixing elements ensure best product conveyance. Choppers can be installed in the mixing drum as optional equipment to disperse agglomerates and provide controlled granulation during the mixing process.
