Drum mixers are a low-cost solution for small-scale batch mixing applications. They are equipped with many characteristics and are extremely flexible. For instance, they could be clamped onto the edges of tanks, mounted with a cup plate or an appropriate structure above the tank. They also come with an adjustable horizontal and vertical shaft axes. These features make them suitable for mixing products of various viscosities and sizes. They can be adjusted to produce the flow patterns you want to eliminate dead spots and getting uniformity.
Drum mixers are available in different sizes, from the smallest size to the largest. Drum mixers have an approximate capacity of 1CY. The mixing process is fast with blades inside the drum lifting the ingredients into the drum. Reverse drum mixers may also be purchased, and are perfect for making small batches of concrete. They have two openings, one to charge and the other for discharging.
They come in two primary types, a drum clamp-on mixer as well as fixed-mount mixer. The former is great for small batch mixing tasks, while the latter is more cost-effective for larger-scale applications.
Even Mix are perfect for mixing thick liquids and products. They come with a variety of features and can be able to withstand up to 800 pounds of force. These mixers can be used in combination with a variety of mixing vessels, including plastic pails and 55-gallon drums. The blades can be used with any size drum and fit into the drum’s opening.
Non-tilting drum mixing bowls are an excellent choice for mixing materials that have settled. They rotate the drum about the horizontal axis with motors. These mixers are perfect for mixing concrete. You can also find models with impellers that fold. You can also select from paddle mixers or Axial flow turbines to meet your mixing requirements.
Drum mixers are typically powered by pneumatic or electric motors and can mix different sizes of particles. In addition to mixing materials, they have internal paddles that help assist the drum as it spins and tumbles. Drum mixers are further divided into batch and reverse models. Reverse drum mixers can mix multiple batches at the same time, while batch drum mixers use only one batch.
Created to mix liquids quickly, these mixers can froth and thicken. They can be used to homogenize and emulsify liquids. They can be set to continuously mix for a short time. The churning action helps improve the consistency. This is especially beneficial in thick liquids.
