BATCH FORMULA® Series High Shear Batch Mixer

High Shear Mixing for Homogeneous Products

One-pot processing is a key element to end up with a homogeneous product with a minimum of resources.

The BATCH FORMULA® Mixer provides the optimal utilization of energy supplied to the High Shear Mixer - as this is directly related to the shear forces.

The High Shear Mixer is placed at the bottom of the vessel and it is one of the crucial factors in ending up with a uniform product without any re-circulation loops. In this way one-pot- processing reduces the process time, saves energy, optimizes the CIP cycle - and at the end of the day increases the profitability.

The BATCH FORMULA® Mixer is characterized by:

  • High shear and no shear in the same vessel
  • Instantly emulsifying powder into liquid and avoiding fish eyes and agglomerates
  • Ensuring a stable suspension because of a highly efficient mixer
  • Soft blending of fragile particles with a little or no damage of the product
  • Hygienic design, ensuring total drainage of the mixer from batch to batch
  • Versatile unit for multiple applications with a high viscosity and up to 80% TS

In the BATCH FORMULA® Mixer the powder is introduced below the liquid surface by the use of vacuum to achieve an instant wetting of the ingredients. This is possible for even the most difficult applications requiring micro bubbles despite a high viscosity product.

BATCH FORMULA® Test Mixer

Providing the highest possible levels of efficiency, flexibility and hygiene, the BATCH FORMULA® Test Mixer has been trusted technology for manufacturers of food and dairy products — such as nutritional formula, food ingredients, cream cheese, yoghurt-based drinks, protein-based drinks, ketchups, sauces and mayonnaise — for many years.

Test Mixer

Specifically designed to meet the strict hygienic requirements of the food and dairy industry, the BATCH FORMULA® Test Mixer features direct steam injection and an integrated clean-in-place (CIP) system, which makes product changeover faster and reduces both water and cleaning agent consumption to a minimum. In addition, easy, efficient cleaning prevents cross-contamination or product carryover when switching batches. 

Compact and cost-effective with a low energy requirement, the equipment provides users with the opportunity to test recipes and processes ahead of full-scale production. The BATCH FORMULA® Test Mixer can also be used for long-term, small-scale production or test group evaluation, helping manufacturers to reduce batch cycle times, improve product homogeneity, increase shelf-life and reduce the time-to-market for new products. 

 

Key Benefits of the BATCH FORMULA® Test Mixer:

  • Energy efficient mixing provides an effective high shear action to deliver carefully controlled product properties.
  • Integrated process control ensures product integrity by monitoring vital parameters to guarantee critical quality attributes are achieved.
  • Rapid part changeover provides flexibility and the ability to produce a wide range of product types.
  • A vacuum system enables liquid/powder introduction below the blend surface, which reduces the processing time and limits issues with air incorporation and foaming.
  • The efficient wetting of powders and liquids beneath the liquid surface limits equipment clogging, increasing both production capacity and operational efficiency.
  • The top-mounted agitator with scrapers prevents discoloration and crystallization inside the vessel.
  • High yields and 100% product recovery.
