Why Mix in One Minute?
Accuracy - the speed of mixing overcomes segregation for higher accuracy to Cv. 5%.
Small systems, high production, lower cost per ton
PREDICTABLE - REPEATBLE - RELIABLE!
Make your product accurately to Cv. 5% repeatedly in small samples in one minute or less with a low speed rotor. Every supplier says they can mix accurately, and the difference is in the size of the sample, and if the quality can be repeated. The importance of the speed is to overcome segregation in the mixer, and to get more production. Some suppliers can mix fast and accurately but they are using either a high speed rotor, or dual rotors.
Why Is PHLAUER™
A Better Investment?
PHLAUER™ is a better investment because of its ability where you can predict, repeat and reliably produce a better product in high volume. You should compare your total installed cost, and calculate the cost per ton for one year, and add the additional profits from more material available to sell, power savings and savings in ingredients. Invariably the cost per ton is less.
No Shear Mixing
The reason for using mixing without shear is to mix without degradation and heat generation. This is important for any sugar based items such as sugar with rolled oats; sugar based drinks like iced tea, orange crystals or fiber, except when sugar plating is required.
High Shear Mixing
Our aggressive shear has many uses in the food industry to remove lumps with repeatable performance so an additional milling or screening step may be eliminated. Our design is so much different than the standard chopper that we gave it our own name being “Shearmaker”. It has a different blade design, different speed, two-bearing pedestal, and our own patented seal that uses a film of air around the shaft to do the sealing.
Mixers are available in both batch and continuous configurations and mix to Cv. 5%. The rotors have no shear and mixes different sizes and weights of particles in one minute or less.
Aggressive Shear can be added to remove lumps or develop color. We construct the units in sanitary stainless steel with a variety of finish levels suited to each application.
Blending of heat sensitive or friable ingredients is not a problem. With a one-minute blend time from our low intensity agitator product integrity is not compromised.
Sanitary & 3A Mixers
All sanitary mixers have in common that they must be free from cracks, crevices, undercut welds, and have welds ground. The categories are then defined by the end use.
We make six categories of sanitary mixers, all are CDA, USDA, FDA accepted: sanitary carbon, general food grades, super sanitary food grade, 3A, pharmaceutical.
