Plough Shear Mixer Has High Efficiency In Food Industry
Plough Shear Mixer was invented by German and popularly used in Europe in early years. Most Europe people prefer using plough shear mixer in most industries. Nowadays, this mixer is more and more applied in Food industry to help customer solve many problems such as mixing time, mixing homogeneity, blocking of material and other special problems. Vortex use our own knowledge and experience to develop plough shear mixer in China and export to worldwide. In China, more and more consumers care about safety of food. It will be high demand in food process line in factory and also have high requirement in process machinery. Powder Mixer as one of the most important machine in whole process line, we should focus on the mixers which could meet requirement in safety of food.
However, what is the safety mixer for food? No contamination, High precision, Easy Clean, Low Maintenance and High quality is answer for food mixer. Vortex guarantee for healthy and safe nutrition.
For Plough Shear Mixer, the shovel and clearance between shovel and vessel is key to reduce the possibility of contamination. We design the shovel welding on shaft without any bolts which will not have dead space for material stay. Furthermore, the residues of material is also important because if we can not guarantee the minimum clearance between shovel and vessel, there will be more residues stay inside mixer which will pollute for next batch product.
Due to fast speed of shaft and fluidizition mixing action principle, the plough shear mixer can finish high precision mixing in the shortest time which could save half time of vertical mixer and other types of mixer such as ribbon mixer, conical mixer. Furthermore, it can also break agglomeration of some sticky material.
One of the most important thing is cleaning for food customer. Easy access to every part of inside and outside of mixer is necessary in design for worker to do frequent cleaning job. So, the cleaning door must be full and big enough for worker to access every detail parts of mixer. CIP cleaning system is preferred to be used in mixer.
The structure and drive unit must be designed in simple and strong enough to ensure working life and minimize troubleshooting for customers. The structure of Plough Shear Mixer is very simple including motor, gear reducer and seal part.
Welding, polishing, buffing and machining are all important to ensure GMP or FDA standard. As for polish, Ra0.4 for material contact part is the highest requirement for mixer. Smooth welding takes more human effort to finish the mixer.
