The solid mixers of the SOLIDMIX VSM series are particularly suitable for mixing free-flowing goods. The drive shaft is free-overhung and no product-wetted bearings are inside the vessel itself. In addition, the small wall clearance between the impeller and the vessel wall prevents product residues. The product is moved upwards close to the wall and flows downwards in the center. The vessel geometry with the conical bottom and the EKATO Solids-PARAVISC impeller are designed for an almost complete emptying of the vessel with minimum yield rates. Optionally, various system components can be offered: CIP systems ATEX versions from Zone 0 to Zone 2 Vertical mixer for solids type SOLIDMIX VSM 8000 with Solids-PARAVISC impeller EKATO Solids-PARAVISC impeller in 8,000 l scale EKATO Solids-PARAVISC The Solids-PARAVISC impeller, especially designed for this unit type, enables reliable operation with low maintenance and excellent mixing. The power input is designed for high energy efficiency and thus allows high vertical mixing. In addition, the product is gently mixed with a minimal shearing effect. The special design of the EKATO Solids-PARAVISC ensures a high mixing quality in the shortest possible time – even for large volumes.
