AJAX Continuous Mixers
AJAX mixers produce a high quality mix at the ‘scale of scrutiny’ because of the efficient multiple and progressive actions of paddles or ribbons. Homogeneity is quickly achieved and the reduced work input means low energy requirements. Particle attrition and damage to sensitive products are also minimised. Product transfer is concurrent with the mixing process so segregation and quality issues associated with intermediate storage and separate, sequential operations can be avoided. Reduced handling and mix quality are built in, so the rejection of large quantities and inconsistencies that can arise from batch manufacture are prevented. Easy cleaning with the ability to both clean-in-place and quickly change over the mixing augers means that downtime is reduced and cross contamination avoided. AJAX ribbon and paddle flights gently mix and positively combine solids and liquids that differ in flow properties, size, density, or other tendency that might provoke segregation to deliver the correctly proportioned ingredient mix.
Many model sizes are available with a wide range of throughputs. A compact footprint and design flexibility makes for an easy fit into plant processes.
