PerMix Fluidized Zone Mixers Cantilever Design Eliminates Confined Space Entry For Cleaning & Maintenance

Eliminate Confined Space Entry For Cleaning & Maintenance Without Increasing Floor Space With PerMix’s Cantilever Design

Since 1954 PerMix has been leading the industry with our engineering, innovation, performance, & quality, all while keeping realistic pricing that is affordable by all budgets. Our cantilever design is a testimonial of that.

PerMix’s cantilever design gives users the ability to open the end of the mixer and expose the interior completely. The cantilever design allows for the interior to be exposed without the need for overhanging pillars that competitors have that doubles the floor space needed and creates overhang obstacles. This is crucial in saving space as well as creating a safer workplace environment.

By having a cantilever design, the need for confined space entry to clean and perform maintenance is eliminated. It also decreases the time needed for maintenance, cleaning, and inspection. All things that create a perfect balance needed to increase production and decrease downtime.

And PerMix did this all without adding a huge cost to the mixer. Any of our mixers can have the cantilever design added as an option without creating a huge additional cost. Something our competitors have yet to figure out.

Powder Mixers – To Spray Or Not To Spray, That Is The Question. The Advantages Of Using Spray Nozzles To Add Liquids Into Powders During Mixing

To Spray Or Not To Spray, That Is The Question. The Advantages Of Using Spray Nozzles To Add Liquids Into Powders During Mixing

From pharmaceuticals & foods to chemicals & cosmetics, mixing ingredients together often requires the mixing of powders & liquids. The way we add liquid into powders during the mixing process can extend the mixing process if not done correctly. Many times you will see liquids being added by simply pouring or “dripping” them into the batch. This form is adding liquids into powder mixers is not a good practice. Droplet size or particle size of the liquid has everything to do with how the powders are affected. We want the powders to absorb the liquid, not the liquid to absorb the powder. When we simply pour ar drip the liquid in, the particle size is larger than that of the powder and what happens is the powder is drawn to the liquid and forms clumps.

By reducing the particle size and reducing the surface tension of the liquid by using spray nozzles and different pressures, we can eliminate clumping and decrease the amount of time it takes powders to absorb the liquid. The size of the powder particles will suggest what type of nozzles to use and the amount of pressure needed at the pump. The higher the pressure of the pump, the more the liquid is atomized. Several different options are available.

An additional advantage of using pumps and spray nozzles to add liquids into powders is that it optimizes the efficiency of the liquids and absorption rates, allowing you to use less liquid. It will also optimize batch control and consistency, and minimize mixing & drying times if mixing & drying.

Here is a video of our PerMix Paddle Mixer with liquid additive manifold and nozzles. The unit was equipped with a dosing pump that supplied the manifold. Not that the manifold and nozzles can be broken down with no tolls by using the Tri-Clover sanitary type clamps.
