How Plough Mixer Works

02-03-2017

Plough mixer is widely used to mix powder, granule, and small liquid additives in food, chemical, and construction line. Plough Shear Mixer has different name in different area. In America, people name it as plow mixer, In Europe, people like to name it Ploughshare mixer.
The working principle of plough shear mixer:
It has a cylindrical shell with plough shovel welded or bolted on arms and the shaft runs at high speed to effect a fluidizing action. Plough Shear Mixer is designed for heavy duty blending of both dry and wet materials. Plough shape shovels mounted on a central shaft with its pointed ends are easily penetrable through the dense powder, party mass. The over lapping of shovels coupled with its shape and the high speed of the ploughs produces good mixing action and high turbulence. The use of high speed choppers further reduces the product particle size thus resulting in a better mix. The plough shovel lifts the material upward, and the material settles in a pattern. Whirling, three-dimensional product movement makes output material with very high homogeneity within short mixing time.

Plough shear mixer is particularly good at handling bulk powder in dry / dry solids, dry / wet paste, and wet-wet mass of food additives, mortar, fertilizing, sludge, plastic, and special building material. The powerful shearing effect makes it high efficiency, and good mixing result.
