PerMix Plow Mixers lead the industry in technology, performance, and value. PerMix Plow Mixers are available in two types, Horizontal Plow Mixers and Horizontal Plow Mixer / Dryers. Both our Plow Mixers as well as our Plow Mixer / Dryers are available in capacities from 1 liter to 30,000 liters, and have options that are endless
PerMix Plow Mixers, part of our powder mixers collection, are high-efficiency mixers that provide a low/medium shear effect on ingredients when aggressively mixing. Plow mixers are one of the most diverse mixers available as they can be used for blending dry, powdery, granular, fibrous, and moist solids and liquids together with pasty products up to and including highly viscous products. For a less aggressive mixing type with better shearing and resizing effect, see our Paddle Mixer models
Along with being very diverse because of the products/ingredients they can mix, the plow mixer is also very versatile in regards to different processes needed, such as compounding, fine mixing, dispersing, suspending, emulsifying, deaerating, tempering, accelerating chemical or physical reactions, granulating, breaking down agglomerating & more…
PerMix plow mixers are available in numerous configurations, including:
The PerMix Plow Mixers unit consists of one electrical motor, one reduction gear, coupling, and shaft with an agitation that has plow liked shaped attachments that collide with ingredients causing a multi-directional response that mixes products quickly. The shaft of the plow mixer is sealed with bush & PTFE gland housing at both ends.
Materials are loaded from the top side of the plow mixer, and the discharge is located at the bottom side in the center or end, depending on production needs, either batch type or continuous. The discharge height can be adjusted as per requirement, so that material gets discharged into the container below it without floating dust.
PerMix Plow Mixers consist of one electrical motor, one gearbox, and a shaft with plows located in a O-shaped vessel.
The plowsare designed in such a way that the powder materials are guided to move from the two ends of vessel to the center, and meanwhile from center to both ends, and over, until batch is mixed thoroughly.
In addition Plow Mixers also lift the ingredients into the air, mixing them in a “fluidized zone” then allow them to drop back down. In such a three-dimensional way, the total powder can be mixed fast in the vessel. It asks for a short mixing time and relatively low power consumption.
The PerMix Horizontal Plow Mixer / Dryers have the same mixing principle as our Horizontal Plow Mixersbut add the ability to add an external jacket that allows for heating & cooling of products inside the mixer while mixing.
The heating & cooling allows for precision control in temperatures and aids in the drying process. It can also be used to control chemical reactions that may take place during mixing. In addition to adding a jacket, the Plow Mixer / Dryers can also be equipped with internal vacuum. Theses features all allow the PerMix Plow Mixer / Dryers to remain versatile & efficient mixing solutions.
The PerMix Hybrid Plow Mixer / Dryers have the same mixing principle as our Horizontal Plow Mixers & Plow Mixer / Dryers but add the ability for the operator to change agitation type with ease, switching from paddle to plow, or even segmented ribbon.

The nanotech industry is unique in every way. It differs from other industries because every step of the what, no matter what field, they are doing what couldn't be done prior. Whether it is the food industry, pharmaceutical industry, or chemical industry, we are using reactions of some sort to achieve a more stable & stronger product. For this, the mixers need to be custom engineered for the product they are mixing, the ingredients being used, as well as the desired outcome. For this often times high temperatures, high vacuum, and the need to inject inert-gases are needed and PerMix leads the industry in Nanotech mixers.
