As soft drinks have become more sophisticated, the challenge is to manage the new ingredients without making production too complicated. Tetra Pak Mixer RJCI 4X can discharge and mix all ingredients handled in today’s soft drinks industry. It can be used to empty multiple packaging formats whether by aspiration using powder or liquid lances or by feeding ingredients into a hopper or dosing into a recirculation loop at various points. Tetra Pak Mixer RJCI 4X works efficiently and flexibly in an industry where the number of ingredients has exploded. One mixer fits all!
Patented injection technology
The injector enables fast in-feed of powder and concentrate directly into the stream and mixing begins immediately in the injector. This allows us to create a vacuum due to the Venturi effect and to aspirate ingredients directly into the recirculation loop. The powder is sucked into the mixer, thereby minimizing dust in the feed. The high turbulence in the injector combined with a special design causes no splashes to ensure no clogging.
Radial jet technology
Radial jet technology works with the injector to minimize air incorporation and foaming thanks to calm, even mixing that enables instant wetting of powders. Powders dissolve fast without creating a vortex at the surface.
Smart, ergonomic operator table
The smart, ergonomic operator table lets operators work on the floor to add ingredients at floor level from sacks, Big Bags and various kinds of packaging formats quickly and easily – with an ergonomic and automated solution and a large operator-friendly HMI. It also enables easy water rinsing of the funnel and concentrate drums with a water gun, ensuring that no powder or concentrate goes to waste during addition. The floor level operation minimizes investment cost since no screw conveyor, pneumatic system or platform is required for adding ingredients.
Powders with a tendency to form lumps can be a problem for operators. Crushing the lumps may require a manual intervention using physical force. This is how equipment can become damaged and scratched. But lumps are not a problem with our wet feeding solution. If required, the feeding hopper will automatically fill with liquid creating turbulence for mixing. This will help to separate lumps and start the dissolving process before lumps can clog the system.
