The Art of Mixing – Multi-Dimensional Ploughshare Technology
Ploughshare Mixers are the most efficient mixers available in the world and consist of a horizontal cylindrical container with multiple plow-shaped shovels mounted on the main shaft—with 15% – 85% filling of the mixer volume, providing multiple batch sizes and increased flexibility in only one machine. The size, number and positioning, geometric shape and peripheral speed of the mixing elements are precisely coordinated to efficiently produce a whirling cross-action, three-dimensional product movement. The complete mixing chamber becomes an active zone, whereby the entire product is constantly involved in the mixing process eliminating "dead zones" or low-movement zones inside the mixer. This guarantees fast, precise, predictable and homogenous mixing. The mixing tools are specially designed to lift the material from the inside wall of the container without smashing the particles against the chamber wall, which reduces the risk of product degradation. The result is an ideal mixer for all products and applications that's perfect for mixes containing multiple materials of varying bulk densities.
