The Munson Rotary Batch Mixer model 700-THCX-600-MSL blends abrasive materials in six to eight minutes, with total uniformity and little to no shear, degradation or heat.
Constructed of carbon steel, the mixer is intended for demanding applications including concrete premix, ceramics, powdered metals, fertilisers, plastics and catalysts.
It has a useable batch capacity of 17 m3 and its horizontal rotating vessel contains proprietary mixing flights with replaceable wear liners made of abrasion-resistant steel. The flights also direct the material toward and through a stationary, pneumatically-actuated plug gate valve for total discharge.
The rotating drum, powered by dual 45 kW drives is supported at each end by two oversized trunnion rings that ride on heavy-duty alloy roller assemblies. The design eliminates the need for an internal shaft with seals contacting material. To contain dust, the machine has one seal at the inlet, which is mounted externally.
Munson Rotary Batch Mixers are available in capacities ranging from 142 liters to 17 m3 and are available constructed to industrial, abrasion-resistant or sanitary standards.
