The new model 700-TH-20-SSJ, 20-cubic-foot (.6-cubic-meter) sanitary, jacketed rotary batch mixer from Munson Machinery Co. gently blends batches of ingredients in parts as small as one per million with 100% uniformity in less than three minutes, while keeping materials heated or cooled. The mixer can be piped to an in-plant chiller to prevent heat-sensitive bulk products from agglomerating, clumping, degrading, smearing and/or sticking, or to an in-plant steam, hot water or hot oil system to maintain elevated material temperatures during processing. "The rotary batch mixer has less effect on temperature levels of materials being blended than ribbon, plow or paddle blenders because it achieves total batch uniformity 10 to 20 times faster," said Charlie Divine, marketing manager.
