Multi-shaft mixers in the food industry

Food manufacturers are seeing the benefits of ‘one-pot’ processing
No Comments
A large portion of food-industry mixing operations are still accomplished by relatively simple single-shaft mixers such as propellers, pitched-blade turbines, impellers and anchor stirrers. Increasingly, however, food manufacturers are seeing the benefits of “one-pot processing,” especially when it comes to high-solids viscous applications that conventional mixers can’t handle.
