Our experience in the last few years has been that new ingredients and recipes are harder to mix, particularly to get the end to end transportation. For that reason, we recommend you assess what the dual rotor can do.
We have rebuilt a paddle/ribbon mixer that could not achieve the Cv. ‘s, and have supplied two dual shaft AR400 machines, one with Shearmakers. There are just a few recipes that will have lumps, e.g. salt and iron oxide. They will not work well if the end user is putting them through a feeder. Shearing for 2 or 3 minutes can radically improve the product. We don’t usually design production to include shear time, and customers are taking lower production on these few items.
Another reason to look at dual shafts it the geometry of the discharge hopper. A long, narrow mixer can have shallow angles on the ends of the hopper causing poor flow.
The options available on the animal feed mixer are also available for this machine. We also believe attention should be given to accelerated wear. If stainless steel is required, it is softer than carbon steal in the annealed state which gives it chemical resistance. Some options could be to use thicker plate, UHMW, and SO17400 HT900 which has same properties as Tp304, but is heat treatable. It is several times the price of TP304. Teflon Inhibcote impregnation or other coatings could also be looked at.
