PerMix Paddle Mixers
PerMix Paddle Mixers lead the industry in technology, performance, and value. PerMix Paddle Mixers are available in four types, our standard Horizontal Paddle Mixers, Horizontal Paddle Mixer / Dryers, Twin Shaft Paddle Mixers, also called Fluidized Zone Mixers & our new Vertical Paddle Mixers called our PAD Series. Our Paddle Mixers, Twin Shaft Paddle Mixers / Fluidized Zone Mixers, as well as our Paddle Mixer / Dryers are available in capacities from 1 liter to 30,000 liters, and have options that are endless. Our PAD series Vertical Paddle Mixers have capacities of 20 liters to 5,000 liters.
Permix PTP series plow mixers are efficient and versatile blending machines for mixing of dry powders. Paddle mixers are so versatile that they can also handle short fibered substances, moist solids with liquids, pasty materials, and highly viscous masses.
The PerMix Paddle Mixers unit consists of one electrical motor, one reduction gear, coupling, and shaft with an agitation that has paddle liked shaped attachments that collide with ingredients causing a multi directional response that mixes products quickly. The shaft is sealed with bush & PTFE gland housing at both ends. Materials are loaded from top side, and the discharge is located at the bottom side in the center or end, depending on production needs, either batch type or continuous. The discharge height can be adjusted as per requirement, so that material gets discharged into the container below it without floating dust.
PerMix Paddle Mixers consists of one electrical motor, one gearbox, and a shaft with plows located in a O-shaped vessel. The plows are designed in such a way that the powder materials are guided to move from the two ends of vessel to the center, and meanwhile from center to both ends, and over, until batch is mixed thoroughly, in addition Paddle Mixers also lift the ingredients into the air, mixing them in a “fluidized zone” then allow them to drop back down. In such a three-dimensional way, the total powder can be mixed fast in the vessel. It asks for a short mixing time and relatively low power consumption. For out twin shaft Paddle Mixers that have twin shafts and paddle sets, there is an option for dual drives. Our Twin Shaft Paddle Mixers are also referred to as Fluidized Bed Mixers
The PerMix Horizontal Paddle Mixer / Dryers have the same mixing principle as our Horizontal Paddle Mixers but add the ability to add an external jacket that allows for heating & cooling of products inside the mixer while mixing. The heating & cooling allows for precision control in temperatures and aids in the drying process. It can also be used to control chemical reactions that may take place during mixing. In addition to adding a jacket, the Paddle Mixer / Dryers can also be equipped with internal vacuum. Theses features all allow the PerMix Paddle Mixer / Dryers to remain versatile & efficient mixing solutions.
Our Twin Shaft Paddle Mixers / Fluidized Zone Mixers are ideal for mixing ingredients of different density & particle size as the twin paddle design “flings” the ingredients in the air with such velocity the mixing is done in the air, in a gravity free zone where density & size do not matter.
PerMix Vertical Paddle Mixers compliment to continued development of PerMix’s Vertical Mixers and has all the features of our Horizontal PaddleMixers but add the advantages of our other Vertical Mixers and have reduced footprint and a more versatile batch range as there is no minimum batch size. Like our other Vertical Mixers, the Vertical Paddle Mixers also leave little to no residue after discharge.
