INLINE FORMULA™ Series High Shear In-Line Mixer

The INLINE FORMULA™ high shear mixer is based on a unique versatile system that easily can enter as a unit to improve an already existing production line or replace existing equipment.

The customized multi-rotor, INLINE FORMULA Mixer is much more than a vessel with a bottom-mounted mixer. It is a combination of a high shear mixing head to ensure a homogeneous product and a centrifugal pump enabling a feed pressure to the downstream process.

The INLINE FORMULA™ Mixer is available in two set-ups:

One-pass process is often used when powder with high solubility has to be dissolved in short time whereas the multi-pass process is used when a high quantity of powder must emulsify with for instance oil, gum or flavors.

The process vessel can be supplied with different options such as:

Mixing Formula Inline
Mixing Formula Inline
  • Heating/cooling via a dimple jacket
  • Vacuum for de-aeration of the product
  • Vacuum-feature for powder introduction

Typical applications for In-Line Mixing are:

  • Beverages like juice and carbonated water for the production of soft drinks
  • Liquid food
  • Recombined milk

The advantages of using the INLINE FORMULA™ Mixer are among others:

  • A continuous process that can run in-line with the downstream process
  • Just-in-time production - preparation of the batch at the time needed
  • No or only short storage-time of the mixed product before further processing
The discharge of the INLINE FORMULA™ Mixer can either be directed into storage tanks for re-circulation (one-pass process) or as a double re-circulation loop directed into storage tanks during circulation (multi-pass process).
 

INLINE FORMULA™ SOL1

The INLINE FORMULA™ SOL1 is especially designed for dissolving large quantities of powders in liquid. The SOL1 has a bottom-mounted mixer and as the powder is introduced via a vacuum-feature it is possible to reach a uniform powder blend in few minutes.

INLINE FORMULA™ SOL1 characteristics:

  • Short process time 
  • Vacuum dissolver 
  • De-aeration 

Standard Features:

  • High shear mixing 
  • Water inlet on top 
  • Manway hatch 
  • Vacuum 
  • CIP ready

Options:

  • Direct heating 
  • Indirect heating 
  • Cooling 
  • Frequency inverter on mixer 
  • Funnels
 

INLINE FORMULA™ SOL2

The INLINE FORMULA™ SOL2 is especially designed for dissolving powders quickly to avoid "fish eyes" or lumps. This mixer is typically used for pre-mixes and the powder is added from the top. The SOL-2 is equipped with a welded lid with a manway hatch making it suitable for CIP cleaning. Available from 50-6000 liters working capacity

INLINE FORMULA SOL2 characteristics:
