Fast, High Capacity Precision Mixing

October 4, 2011

The new Bella XN double-shafted Fluidized Zone Mixer by Dynamic Air includes access doors that not only increase accessibility but also make it much easier to clean when necessary. The Bella mixer achieves fast, high capacity, low shear, precision mixing of either dry bulk solids or liquids with solids. Regardless of particle size, shape or density, materials are mixed with a fast, efficien, and gentle action -- typical mixing times are 60 seconds or less, according to the manufacturer. A weightless zone created by low-speed counter rotating shafts generates very low friction without shear. This makes it ideal for fragile products that cannot tolerate rough handling. Even flakes or spray-dried bodies remain intact.
