From Small Lab / R&D To Production, PerMix Paddle & Plow Mixers Answer The Needs Of Customers Globally
Since 1954 PerMix has been leading the industry with our mixing technology, performance, and quality. What sets us apart from others is that from Lab / R&D to Production we provide solutions that fit your needs, making scale-up easy. Not all Paddle & Plow Mixers are created equally and there is a science behind the mixing, and PerMix knows this. We incorporate the science into every Paddle & Plow Mixer we make, ensuring from 1 liter to 20,000 liters, performance is equal. Other manufacturers focus on large batch only, which is where the issue is as they do not perform the same as the Lab / R&D versions. This presents many complications, consuming time from conception to production creating SQF & HACCP issues as batch consistency is off.
The science is in the paddle & plow design. From the angle of the plow to the curvature of the plow, to the surface area of the paddle, how it hit and reacts to the product is not the same across brands. More importantly, there is also some mixing even done as the plow passes the product. To ensure accurate and like results from conception to production choose PerMix.

Ever had a problem selecting a proper mixer? PerMix is here to help you how to approach this problem and what necessary questions one should ask to arrive at the proper choice of the mixer.
It is really important to know the material characteristics of the powder you are mixing. Is it sticky/lumpy or free-flowing? If it is lumpy then one can provide choppers to eliminate lump formation. With the free-flowing powder, not much problem is experienced.
The next step is to know whether the liquid is going to be part of the process or not? If it is then one needs to select the mixer in such a way that it has the proper amount of empty space above the material bed to promote efficient liquid addition.
Does your mixing process require additional processes such as shearing, cooling, reaction or heating? The shearing process can be required when one wants to eliminate the stickiness in the product and heating/cooling are required when the desired product is required is at lower/higher temperature vice-versa.
Does the installation sight have any space constraints? If the space is an issue in terms of footprint area then one can go for vertical mixers but for that the head room required is on the larger side. Similarly when the headroom is constraint one can go for the horizontal mixer.
Does your product have any requirement of specific standards? According to the requirements, different standards are available like CIP (Clean in place) and SIP (Sterilization in place). They are generally used for food-grade ingredient mixing and in the pharmaceutical industries.

PerMix Vertical Vacuum Ribbon Mixer & Dryer For High Temperature Lab Mixing
Since 1954 PerMix has been leading the industry with our innovative & performance-based mixing solutions that are affordable & our vertical vacuum ribbon mixers are a perfect example of this. Our vertical vacuum ribbon mixers & dryers are ideal for Lab/R&D applications as well as high production areas.
This vertical vacuum ribbon mixer was designed for mixing metal powders under high temperatures. It has high pressure, ASME certified jacket, and the interior is vacuum rated. The jacket is rated for heating & cooling, and is designed to use oil at 325•C to heat the mixer. The system was designed to be connected to a thermal control unit that is using synthetic oil to heat. Because of the high temperatures, the seals are being cooled by a cooling circulation pump also, to ensure proper vacuum is maintained during the processing of the metal powders. The interior is polished to minimize residue upon discharge of products. It was also designed with gas purging.
