High-shear mixing granulator maximizes processes

June 24, 2009
Full range of high-shear mixer granulators for maximum efficiency mixing, granulating and drying, is now offered with container volumes ranging from 1.6 liters to 1800 liters. The high-shear mixer granulators employ the EKATO – Gentlewing® technology to ensure thorough, high-speed mixing, while preventing product adhesions to maximize output. Complete and efficient product mixing is ensured through the top-driven Gentlewing that penetrates “dead zones” that other mixers might miss. High-quality granulating is provided through controlled mixing and a large granulating surface. Quick drying is achieved through high internal heat transfer, even on the lowest power input. Additional advantages include: Shaft seals outside the product; Short transfer time to fluid bed or container; and Improved single pot technology with no tilting required.
