Quick, accurate mixing with low deviation

The portfolio delivers high consistent homogeneity and above 99% accuracy. Twin-paddle shaft technology lets you maximize throughput and number of batches, handling up to ten batches per hour. Based on our database of over 5,000 powders and detailed homogeneity performance trials, we help you select the optimal mixer size, powder-filling ratio and cycle time for your specific products. Take the opportunity to perform homogeneity trials with your specific products at our product development centre in Le May-sur-Évre, France.

Secure food safety with the highest hygiene

Thanks to our intensively tested design, this portfolio of mixers secures paddle clearance and thus eliminates contamination risk. They are also designed for cleanability and are fully openable and inspectable. Features include a fully welded top with no seals, edges or sharp corners plus dust-tight door seals. To minimize powder residue, the internal surface roughness is under 0.8 microns and the inspection doors and outlet hatch are flushed with the inner surface.

Our portfolio of powder mixers delivers industry’s fastest dry cleaning and lowest downtime in powder-to-powder mixing

Just 10 minutes for a simple flushing and only 90 minutes and one operator for a thorough cleaning with vacuum and dust-cloth – that’s all you need to clean our powder-to-powder mixers. This represents the fastest cleaning in the industry and significantly cuts your downtime for cleaning, delivering big savings on your overall operational costs. That’s vital in production where high hygiene is the top priority. In infant formula production, for example, every hour of cleaning time saved is worth approximately €125,000.

Features

Twin-paddle shaft technology

Quick and accurate mixing

The twin-paddle shaft technology maximizes throughput and number of batches, handling up to ten batches per hour. The synchronized rotating shafts ensure efficient powder circulation in the vessel. Homogeneity is high and consistent – above 99% accuracy.

Designed for optimal cleanability

No risk of contamination

As paddle clearance is secured, there is no contamination risk. The Tetra Pak Powder Mixer B is designed for full cleanability and is fully openable. An inspection hatch allows for quick assessment of cleaning needs and the discharge valve is fully dismountable. The internal surface roughness – under 0.8 microns – minimizes powder residue.

Fast dry cleaning

Minimal downtime

A simple flushing takes ten minutes. A thorough dry cleaning with vacuum and dust-cloth only takes 90 minutes for one operator. This cuts downtime for cleaning to a minimum, and equals big savings to your overall operational costs.

Highest level of hygiene

Highest level of hygiene

Secures food safety

The Tetra Pak Powder Mixer B complies with all European safety regulations. It is designed according to EHEDG guidelines and fully approved for food contact according to the EC1935-2004 regulation.

Robust design

Robust design

Minimal need for maintenance

The unique power transmission with gear motor and gear coupling is reliable and robust. Lifetime is long – 10-15 years with round-the-clock operation. And apart from lubrication, there’s minimal need for maintenance.

Safe and hassle-free operation

Reliable performance

The perfectly synchronized paddles and shafts are designed to secure that no contact with the vessel wall can occur. This trustworthy design results in a reduced noise level and less vibrations. Reliability and uptime are also secured by full failure mode effect analysis (FMEA), FEM calculation and intensive tests at our PDC.
