Lödige Ploughshare®Food Mixer for continuous operation
The continuous Ploughshare® Mixer operates according to the mechanically generated uid bed introduced to mixing technology by Lödige. The mixing elements are speci cally adapted to individual applications.
This mixing system achieves high throughputs which can be varied dependent upon residence time, lling degree and product properties.
The resultant individualisation of the particles in the mix ( uid bed) allows addition of liquids and coating of particles in a continuous process too. The continuous process is operable at lling degrees between 20 and 50 % without in uencing the mix quality. The mixing elements are designed to achieve constant backmixing during the residence time prior to discharge the mixed product via the outlet. The adjustment of the size of the discharge opening by means of a slide or a weir has a direct in uence on the residence time. Dosing uctuations can be compensated by the mixer.
