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.
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.
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.

7. Easy to clean and sterilize
8. Long service life through the use of corrosion-resistant reactor materials (Stainless Steels, Hastelloy, Titanium, Nickel Alloys)
Recipharm Chooses PerMix Double Cone Dryers To Meet Demands Of R&D Team.
When the R&D team at Recipharm needed a Double Cone Dryer they chose PerMix because of our ability to combine innovation, performance, quality, & pricing, meeting their demands while still keeping a budget.
The 2 cubic foot PerMix Double Cone Dryer was a turn-key system that included a jacketed mixer that was also rated for internal vacuum. The system also included a temperature control unit and a condensing unit that was also jacketed.

PerMix Sigma Mixers/Extruders Lead The Industry In Innovation & Performance
The PerMix PSG series Sigma Mixer, which is also known as the Double ‘Z’ Arm Kneader, is used for the mixing-kneading of materials with very high viscosity (over 500,000 cps).
With its unique design of Z-shaped mixing tools installed in two semi-cylinders, the PerMix PSG series Sigma Mixer is able to provide combined functions of compressing, stretching, folding, kneading & mixing, which makes it widely used in the chemical, food, sealing compound and paint industries, among others.
The extrusion-discharge screw is located in the saddle section and runs in a cylindrical trough tangential to, and below the 2 mixing blades. During the mixing cycle, the screw moves the material within the reach of the mixing blades, thus assuring a thorough blending of all the ingredients, and, at the same time, accelerating the mixing process. At discharge time, the direction of rotation of the screw is reversed and the mixed material is extruded through suitable die openings in the side of the machine. The extrusion screw has its own separate drive so that blades and screw operate independently.
This PerMix PSGX 150, with total volume of 150 lit ( working volume ~ 90 lit ) delivered for a special Polymers manufacturer customer, was supplied with the following features: Vacuum, Double jacket for heating/cooling and more…

Disruptive By Design, Driven By Perfection, PerMix Double Planetary Mixers Are Second To None
Since 1954 PerMix has been leading the industry in mixing solutions. We are disruptive by design, driven by perfection, creating a winning solution for our customers. Our Double Planetary Mixers are second to none, including the most famous brands such as Ross®. Our mixers feature the same or better performance, the same or better quality, a better warranty, yet at half the cost.
Here is one of the newest Double Planetary Mixers we just completed for a customer. The quick disconnects of the different agitation styles allow the customer greater flexibility in regards to mixing products as the agitation types can be quickly changed with different types. This makes the Double Planetary Mixers perfect for co-packers who need a versatile machine. The quick-change product mixing tanks allow for batches to be changed quickly, making production easy. The ability to heat & chill also allows for precise control of products while also staying SQF & HACCP compliant.
In regards to being easy to clean, with the portable mixing tanks/vessels and the quick disconnect agitation, cleaning and sanitation is easy without being disruptive to the production area as the mixer can be completely cleaned in place or removed and cleaned remotely.
