PerMix Plow Mixers & Plow Mixers/Dryers Lead The Industry In Innovation, Performance, & Quality

PerMix PTS series Plow Mixers, also known as Ploughshare Mixers, is one of our two types of Turbulent Mixer, which are originally designed by our Israeli engineers. The other one is PTP series Paddle Mixer.

WORKING PRINCIPLES:

PTS ploughshare mixer is so versatile that it can handle nearly all types of materials including dry powders, granular materials, short fibered substances, moist solids with liquids, pasty materials and highly viscous masses.

INSTALLATION AND SET-UP:

PerMix PTS series Ploughshare Mixer consists of a centrally mounted horizontal shaft that rotates within a cylindrical container, plough shaped mixing elements that are attached to the centrally mounted shaft, special openings at the top for feeding materials, flush fitting access doors in the front of the mixer, a flush fitting discharge valve at the bottom of the mixer which is pneumatically or manually operated, and a complete drive unit.

OPTIONAL FEATURES:

Dry powder mixing: Food flavoring/additives, Sponge/cake mixes, Cosmetics, Pharmaceuticals, Cement, Powdered rubber. Paste mixing: Biscuit creams, dough, PVC pastes, Car body fillers/putties, Sugar/marzipan paste, Toiletry pastes, Tile adhesives and grouts. Mixing of wet slurries: Filter cake re-slurrying, dough, Fiber glass resin dough putty. Wet granulation,Liquid coating of powders and granules,Fat and oil incorporation,Vacuum drying,Hot air drying.

OPTIONAL VACUUM MIXER/DRYER CONFIGURATION:

The PerMix PTS-D series Vacuum Mixer Dryer is a turbulent mixing reactor-dryer. It is used as a high-speed mixer dryer, chemical reactor or, if both processes are combined, as a dryer-reactor. They are used with particular success in agglomeration-free rapid drying, heterogeneous reactions with systems of different substances, extraction, sterilization and in general for vacuum, positive-pressure, thermal energy and comminuting aids. WORKING PRINCIPLES: The considerably superior heat transfer characteristics of PerMix PTS-D series Vacuum Mixer Dryer are mainly attributable to the fact that external heat applied through the contact surfaces of the mixing vessel and mixing element, supplemented by frictional heat generated during the mixing process. When operating at the usual speed, this accounts for 30 to 35 percent of the total heat applied. Heat transfer is not inhibited by agglomerates or layers of material adhering to the internal components of the tank. This is largely due to the comminuting units and the high-speed, edge-sweeping paddle agitators, which ensure rapid circulation of the materials at the contact faces.

SPECIAL FEATURES:

  1. Different mixing elements (paddles, plows, ribbons, or combined tools)

2. PerMix multichopper unit

3. Different sealing arrangements (packing seals, double mechanical seal, Cinchseal, etc)

4. Vacuum filter housing

5. Heating jacket for electric heater, thermal oil, steam, etc

6. Flush-fitting semi-ball discharge valve

7. Special spraying unit for coating

8. Open sidewall for cleaning purposes

9. Pneumatic semi-ball discharge valve

10. Discharge screw

11. Different metal constructions (SS304, SS316L, Titanium, Duplex steel, Hastelloy, etc.)

12. Heated shaft

13. Sampling port

14. Explosive-proof construction

15. Control board, etc.

ADVANTAGES:

  1. Cost savings: The PerMix PTS-D series Vacuum Mixer Dryer combines several machines: less pipe-work, fewer control and space requirements

2. Short reaction times

3. Optimum heat transfer via large contact areas

4. Turbulent mixing by mechanical fluidization of reaction material

5. No dead areas in reactor and the discharge areas

6. The PerMix PTS-D series Vacuum Mixer Dryer can also be supplied with removable mixing tools.

7. Easy to clean and sterilize

8. Long service life through the use of corrosion-resistant reactor materials (Stainless Steels, Hastelloy, Titanium, Nickel Alloys)

PerMix Fluidized Zone Mixers: Mixing Difficult & Multiple Density Products Rapidly With No Shearing

Posted on

From food manufacturers to pharmaceutical manufacturers, agricultural to cosmetics, when manufacturers have the need to mix products of various densities that are difficult, they turn to the Fluidized Zone Mixers. The single or double shaft fluidized zone mixers create a mixing effect that causes ingredients to be mixed in a “fluidized zone” which is a zone that is created inside the mixing chamber where the ingredients mix in the air. The paddles mix the products by flinging the ingredients into the air “breaking gravity” and mixing rapidly yet gently. This type of mixing can decrease mixing times by 50-75%, depending on ingredients.

Come see the PerMix difference. For more info on our fluidized zone mixer go to our PFB page

The Responsibility of Manufacturing Revenue Generating Assets, or Simply Manufacturing Products. There is a Difference.

We as manufactures manufacture our products for two reasons. Either to increase our revenue or increase the customer’s revenue. There is a difference between the two and knowing the difference will empower some who choose to manufacture for the later. 

Often companies manufacture products to fulfill a market need. These companies look at market need, market strategy, market cost, then capturing market share. These companies will not look at sustainability or how quickly the customer will get an ROI (Return on Investment) from their purchase. They will offer a minimum warranty on their product while manufacturing the product the least expensive way.

Our company is a company that manufactures products focusing on sustainability. Companies that focus on sustainability get the fact that the item they are manufacturing is a “Revenue Generating Asset” to the buyer. The buyer is purchasing this product because he needs it to increase production, decrease labor costs, while increasing the quality of his product. When he chooses a product to purchase he expects a quick return on his investment so he can recover the cost of the purchase, then increase his revenue once the item is paid for. And this is exactly why we manufacture our products. 

We take it a step further though by adding one of the best warranties in the industry. Knowing that an ROI on our products takes an average of 4 to 6 months, we back our products with a 2 year warranty. Giving the customer 1.5 years of revenue generating with the asset and no worries. Returning to them the true meaning of why they purchase equipment and making them feel good about the purchase. They know for 1.5 years they will not have to worry about anything.

We choose to manufacture this way, changing the industry, hopefully, for the better. We do this for the Production Line, Chefs, Researchers, Scientists, Chocolatier, or any other customer that chooses our products over another. We do this because we get why our customers are purchasing the equipment and why they chose us. More importantly we do this because we also know what they do not expect. They do not expect a unit that breaks down. They do not expect no customer service. They do not expect to be paying for repairs 13 months after they purchased the units, eating up all their profits they are making. 

We manufacture our products for the people purchasing them, knowing what they need, expect, and do not want. They are the reason and the “sole” that drives us and this is what it means when a company gets that they manufacture a “Revenue Generating Asset” and that is the responsibility we have to our customers.
