Dec Group’s Innovative Stationary Batchmixer
The Batchmixer provides the ultimate in speed and flexibility enabling the blending of powders with different characteristics in a contained environment without any internal moving parts.
A revolutionary stationary blending system with no moving parts
The main features and advantages of the Batchmixer are:
- Highly efficient mixing
- High level of containment
- Nitrogen Inert operation if required
- Full product discharge
- Inline sampling available
- Introduction of additives without interruption
- Product characteristics not modified – no segregation and no attrition
- Emptying by gravity or active transfer via PTS
- No moving or rotating parts
- Compact design
- Minimal maintenance
- Clean in place
The Batchmixer provides the ultimate in speed and flexibility, reducing overall process time compared to traditional systems, enabling the operator to mix powders with different characteristics in a contained environment. With applications from 2 litres to 5000 litres, the system also allows the operator to vary product volumes from 10-100%. The system is particularly appropriate for pharmaceutical applications where active substances must be handled without contamination or changes to physical properties.
This easily integrated system has a main container with an integrated central deflector and a PTS with two tangential inlets on top. The powders are automatically introduced by the PTS and circulated within the container for a predefined period of time. The deflector ensures homogenous distribution of the mixture. The mixing process is faster and more effective as a result of the two jets of powder meeting in the PTS body, but with limited circulation speed, particles are not damaged. The system operates under inert conditions for hygroscopic, oxygen sensitive or explosive powders.
Powders can be transferred automatically from drums, bags or directly from process equipment like a granulator or dryer. At the end of the mixing process the system can be emptied completely and automatically either into containers or directly on to the next stage in production without loss of containment.
