Sports Nutrition Formulation Made Easy: How To Mix Ingredients Of Different Sizes & Densities In A Fluidized Zone With Ease
When we mix powders together for sports nutrition often times our ingredients are of different particle size and density. In order to mix these products effectively and efficiently it is best to mix them using a Paddle Mixer or Plow Mixer vs a Ribbon Mixer.
When we mix using a Paddle Mixer or Plow Mixer we minimize the time needed to effectively mix, often times batch times are cut in at least half if not more. The reason for this is the fluidized zone in which the Paddle Mixers & Plow Mixers mix the ingredients. A Fluidized Zone is a zone where the paddles or plows “fling” ingredients, breaking gravity so to speak, and causing ingredients to mix. This zone is what sets the mixers apart from a Ribbon Mixer and what make Plow Mixers & Paddle Mixers so effective and desired.
In addition, the Plow Mixers & Paddle Mixers can also be equipped with an optional chopper which allows for the resizing of ingredients as we mix.
