Original Press Release:
Lee Combination Single-Sweep Agitator with Secondary Bottom-Entry Mixer
Whatever their particular market, companies in the product processing industry face many challenges when creating formulations or recipes with unique characteristics related to a batches viscosity, stickiness or blending sensitivity. Custom vessels with a combination of mixing designs, can usually solve those requirements. This process vessel has a combination of a single-sweep agitator with pitched mixing bars and a secondary mixer. The scrapers on the sweep frame keep the inside of the vessel walls clean while pushing the batch toward the center. The bars cause turbulence or mixing in the batch itself. The bottom-entry mixer is a high-shear disperser that blends hard-to-wet powders or oil-water type mixtures that are usually difficult to marry together. The vacuum/pressure capability of the vessel allows for both deaeration of the product and the capability to pull ingredients into a closed vessel.
