Rotary Drum Mixer

TiERMAX can offer rotary drum mixer for mixing and processing fine powders, granulates and natural products. Our rotary drum mixers quickly blend and process large volumes in an efficient, reliable process that uses very little energy. Our rotary drum mixers never stress or heat particles through shear force. Gravity makes sure every particle keeps its original size, shape and properties. This is how we bring out the best in your chemical, polymer and mineral products.

The rotary drum mixing principle is based on the free flow of product throughout a relatively slowly rotating vessel, which is equipped with specially shaped and oriented vanes. The product is introduced through the inlet at the center line of the vessel. Rotation and gravity gently redistribute the product randomly. Accumulation of product at the outlet side causes a backflow. These flows combined create the gentle mixing action resulting in a homogeneous product within typically 1- 5 minutes. After opening the outlet valve, the product leaves the rotary drum mixer in a matter of a mere few minutes, gently propelled by the vanes. The rotary drum mixer empties itself completely.

Advantages of our rotary drum mixer:

Excellent homogeneity in a short mixing cycle

No breaking and frictional heat

Minimum segregation

Suitable for sensitive and fragile products

Quick and easy to clean

Very low energy consumption

Low maintenance

Horizontal construction

Variable batch size

WIP/CIP (Washing In Place/Cleaning In Place)

Extra large easy opening doors

Very effective way to process powders and granulate-using rotary drum mixer

Mixing

Fine powders, granulates and natural products

Liquid injection:

Impregnation, coating, wetting

Heat transfer:

Cooling, heating, drying

Freezing

Disinfection

Due to the fact that each and every particle always moves, this principle is highly useful for other application. Beside mixing, this rotary drum mixers offers a very effective way to process powders and granulate in others ways than just mixing, example are:

– Liquid injection: impregnation, coating, wetting

– Heat transfer: cooling, heating, drying

– Freezing

– Disinfection

 

Rotary drum mixer for food industry:

For food, sanitary design and easiness of cleaning are essential. Special attention and effort are put into the quality of the welds and surface finish. All metal parts that come in contact with the product are made of stainless steel (AISI 316L or AISI 304). All other parts are made of FDA approved materials. On request, frame and other parts can also made of stainless steel. To facilitate extra quick and easy cleaning and maintenance the rotary drum mixer can be equipped with retractable inlet and outlet – QSR.

We have tailor-made rotary drum mixers for major food, tea and dairy processing clients around the world. We helped a global producer of savory snacks improve the taste of their delicately spiced products without discarding dust.
We help customers mix a variety of ingredients including: breakfast cereals, tea, milk powders, baby food, infant cereals, instant coffees, snacks, nuts and dried fruits and bakery powders. Our rotary drum mixers can handle it all quickly, from small to large volumes in a hygienic environment, while enhancing the purity and taste of every ingredient.

 

Rotary drum mixer for fine chemicals and plastics industry:

For the processing of chemicals often larger mixers are used. Our rotary drum mixers can be delivered in sizes with a batch capacity of up to 25 m3 or 15 tons of product. The rotary drum mixers can be equipped with a double wall for water or steam heating and/or cooling. Also heating/cooling/drying can be applied by means of and air flow through the vessel.

We have tailor-made our rotary drum mixers for cosmetics and chemical customers’ specific needs around the world. We also assist catalyst producers to impregnate and dry their carrier material, which improves the efficiency and safety of their production process and products.
Whether you need to produce detergent powders, catalysts, ceramic powders, polymer compounds, engineering plastics and MIM granulates, raw materials for electronics such as battery powders, or mix metal powders, the quality of your products is always safe in our hands.

 

Rotary drum mixer for Pharmaceutical industry:

We have tailor-made our rotary drum mixers for major pharmaceutical clients around the world. We assisted a main producer of prescription medicines with drying their API at a low temperature under vacuum without damaging the powder’s fragile structure, hereby improving the quality of their product. Whether you need to produce prescription medicines, generic drugs, clinical nutrition powders or herbal medicines, the quality of your products is always safe in our hands.
