PerMix Sigma Mixers & Extruders: Mix, Knead, Blend, & Extruder All In One Unit

PerMix Sigma Mixers/Extruders Lead The Industry In Innovation & Performance

The PerMix PSG series Sigma Mixer, which is also known as the Double ‘Z’ Arm Kneader, is used for the mixing-kneading of materials with very high viscosity (over 500,000 cps).

With its unique design of Z-shaped mixing tools installed in two semi-cylinders, the PerMix PSG series Sigma Mixer is able to provide combined functions of compressing, stretching, folding, kneading & mixing, which makes it widely used in the chemical, food, sealing compound and paint industries, among others.

The extrusion-discharge screw is located in the saddle section and runs in a cylindrical trough tangential to, and below the 2 mixing blades. During the mixing cycle, the screw moves the material within the reach of the mixing blades, thus assuring a thorough blending of all the ingredients, and, at the same time, accelerating the mixing process. At discharge time, the direction of rotation of the screw is reversed and the mixed material is extruded through suitable die openings in the side of the machine. The extrusion screw has its own separate drive so that blades and screw operate independently.

This PerMix PSGX 150, with total volume of 150 lit ( working volume ~ 90 lit ) delivered for a special Polymers manufacturer customer, was supplied with the following features: Vacuum, Double jacket for heating/cooling and more…

PerMix Industrial Mixers: How To Choose A Batch Mixer For Your Needs

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.

We have tried to summarize a few of the points in this article. Do let us know if you have any specific questions related to the mixer in the comment section below.


PerMix Sigma Mixers Perfect Plant-Based Protein Meat Alternatives

Plant-Based Protein Foods: When Taste, Texture, & Aroma Mean Marketshare

In the category of plant-based protein food alternatives it is all about taste, texture, & aroma, and how it compares to its natural meat alternative. How close it is to its counterpart is key and what wins market share against the competition.

No one understands this more than PerMix. Plant-Based proteins require more processing than their natural alternative, up to 3 times as much. The ability to process the ingredients and do it efficiently is crucial when preserving texture, taste, & aroma. There are so many ingredients & additives in these mixtures, it is easy to overprocess the mixture during manufacturing. PerMix has the experience needed to ensure your formula is processed with perfection.

Our Sigma Mixers & Sigma Mixer Extruders are designed to flip &. fold the ingredients creating a coarse or a fine texture, depending on your desires.
