Mix times got you down? Experiencing trouble breaking up agglomerates in your blend? Results not where they should be? Well… sometimes you just have to whip it – whip it good. Let’s talk about high-speed choppers and the benefits they can deliver in maximizing your mixing operations.
Marion high-speed choppers can greatly reduce your blending times and provide superior mixing results. Sized for the situation, our high-speed choppers are available with various cutting head blade configurations to offer the right tool for the task at hand. Mounted through the side of the trough wall, the mixer’s agitator continuously brings material into the chopper’s dispersion zone. There, the cutting edges on the intensive 3600rpm blades effortlessly rip apart and circulate lumps and agglomerates. They also break up liquid-rich shot balls, open matted fibrous materials and distribute pigments.
High-speed choppers can provide optimal mixing results in a variety of applications such as:
- Dispersing colored pigments into grouts/cements, reducing blend time from seven minutes to three minutes
- Mixing agglomerated pigments into plastic powders
- Incorporating blocks of solid (or liquid) shortening into bakery mixes
- Blending PVC resins, oily plasticizers, fillers and pigments
- Blending dry pharmaceutical preparations with thick liquid binders
- Dispersing difficult-to-mix flavorings and nutrient additives in nutraceutical drink powders, reducing blend time from 20 minutes to two minutes
- Breaking up agglomerations in slurry blends
