PerMix PTP Paddle Mixers are an innovative design derived from the well-known Plow Mixers (or Ploughshare Mixers, Plough Mixers). The Paddle provides the same mixing performance as a Plow but requires much less power consumption. Due to the less rotation speed of the paddles, the wearing of the mixing element of the Paddle is also less than the Plows. Besides, PerMix Paddle Mixers have a better performance dealing with the viscous/sticky materials, such as slurries, which is because the plow-shaped mixing elements tend to be wrapped by the viscous materials while the paddles don’t.
Compared with the conventional Ribbon Blenders, Paddle Mixers are superior because they are able to mix the material in a more aggressive way while keeping the similar power consumption due to the fact that the uniquely designed paddles are more patched than ribbons in a Ribbon Blender and move more materials in a single turn.
The main difference between our PTP Paddle Mixer and PTS Plow Mixer is the mixing element: PTS Mixer uses the plow-shaped element, while PTP Mixer uses the paddle element. PerMix PTP Paddle Mixers can be used wherever the Plow Mixers are used, including but not limited to compounding, fine mixing, dispersing, suspending, emulsifying, deaerating, temperature, accelerating chemical or physical reactions, granulating, breaking down agglomerates, etc.
Both Paddle and Plow are ‘aggressive mixers’ that are well qualified for high mixture ratio processes up to 1:1,000,000, which means the single sample of 1 ppm of a batch volume can still have the right mixture of ingredients. PerMix designs the full range of paddle mixers, including the lab size (5L full) & plot size (up to 45Lfull) models for Research &
Development purpose. The small size machine is very helpful for customers when the ingredients R&D are expensive, thus helping our customer to save their limited budget at the first stage. With the good performance of the lab & pilot mixer, it is easy to scale up for a medium-size or even a bigger one.
There are various optional features such as various types of mixing elements, continuous operation, heating/ cooling jacket, feeding and discharging, Access door, construction material, drive system, extended machine bases, spray nozzle.
With some special modification, the PerMix PTP series Paddle Mixer can be used as a multi-stage process vessel eliminating the need for additional specialist equipment. It can be used as a mixer-dryer, mixer –granulator, de-aerator, reactor, and cooler.
