The ploughshare mixer for batch operation uses the mixing and fluid process introduced to mixing technology by Lödige.
The ploughshare shovels in special arrangement on a mixing shaft in a horizontal, cylindrical drum rotate to the wall. Their peripheral speed and geometric form are coordinated in such a way that the mix is moved out of the product bed against the centrifugal force and in axial direction at the same time. All the product is constantly involved in the process, ensures a maximum mixing intensity and shortest residence times until the product is discharged out of the mixer via an outlet.
Thanks to their form adapted to individual application and the speed adjustment, Lödige ploughshare mixers can be used for a wide range of applications.
Choppers can be additionally installed in the mixing drum to increase the turbulence in the mixing process. This ensures the mixing of fine particles in small quantity and enables the dispersion of these products.
