Features

Radial Jet Mixer S/T

Ultra-effective mixing with high energy efficiency

Our radial jet mixer uses the liquid’s own turbulence to mix itself – product mixes product. The absence of mechanical force avoids friction and heat generation, ensuring homogenous mixing at higher efficiency. Mixing is also much faster than conventional mechanical mixers. The radial jet mixer can mix any syrup or beverage of up to 200 cP in viscosity.

Horizontal injector

Eliminates risk of clogging in powder mixing

The patented horizontal injector in our radial jet mixer has a unique geometry that avoids product splashes and shapes the liquid stream to envelop dry powder immediately on entry. This prevents product from settling and clumping in the injector. The injector introduces dry powder at the point of highest turbulence to ensure immediate hydration, further contributing to a fully homogeneous product.

Pre-mix recirculation loop with booster pump

Pre-mix recirculation loop with booster pump

Dissolves ingredients independently from the main batch

It may be advantageous to dissolve ingredients independently from the main batch, for instance to avoid unwanted reactions. A pre-mix recirculation loop allows this without requiring a separate pre-mix vessel. The loop, powered by a booster pump, independently recirculates over the feeding hopper without interfering with the main mixing tanks. This allows preparation of small batches by simply using the feeding hopper as a vessel.

Options

Auto mixing device

Handle challenging ingredients like gums – and cut energy use

An auto mixing device (AMD) is a cost-effective and energy-efficient alternative to a high shear pump when dissolving challenging ingredients like gums, stabilisers and thickeners. Our AMD can handle gum concentrations of up to 1% at 20°C that traditionally would require a high shear pump. The AMD consumes 60 percent less energy than a high shear pump and has a much lower investment cost.

ERS dust extraction and recovery system

Dust recovery for lower product losses and a safe work environment

The patented ERS dust extraction and recovery system removes and recovers all airborne dust with no filter waste or filter maintenance requirement. By recovering the estimated 0.8 percent of powder typically lost to dust it reduces product waste and can considerably reduce the sums lost to waste over time.

Twin-stage nozzle

Twin-stage nozzle

Homogenous mixing of viscous ingredients

When handling viscous ingredients of 150-200 cP our radial jet mixer can be fitted with a twin-stage nozzle. This option is 50 percent more energy-efficient than a single-stage nozzle. It is beneficial for mixing ingredients with floating or sinking particles, such as fibres and pulps, and high volumes of sticky concentrates or dry powders.
