How it works
The Dinnissen Pegasus® Batch Mixer consists of several components. The products to be mixed enter the mixing chamber through the top of the machine. The mixing chamber contains two shafts with paddles that rotate the product into a homogeneous mixture. The mixing shafts can be driven out of the chamber, making it easy to clean. When the Batch Mixer is finished, the double bottom valves at the bottom of the machine open, allowing the product to fall out of the mixing chamber and be transported further from there.
Generating a homogeneous blended mixture is a complicated process. Homogeneity is highly dependent on the mixing procedure used, the type of mixer, the mixing paddles and the shape of the mixing chamber. In addition, during mixing, the set rotation speed and the length of the mixing time are important
Single-shaft paddle mixer
All Pegasus® Mixers are characterized by two counter-rotating paddle shafts. But Dinnissen also supplies a single-axis paddle mixer, which can be used as a pre-mixer. The single-axis paddle mixer is energy-efficient, cost-effective and efficient for light preliminary work when it comes to mixing dry substances.
