The SLIM Mixer is designed for automatic ingredient additions and high-speed mixing. It works by pumping liquid from the tank while simultaneously drawing powders from a stainless steel hopper. Each ingredient addition and each step in the mix, drain and clean cycles are pre-programmed so that mixer speed, mixing time, temperature set-point, composition and batch weight are accurately replicated and recorded in every run. Flow meters, load cells, solenoid valves, level sensors and thermocouples are all integrated into a PLC Recipe Control Panel. The automated system can cut process times by 80% or more. By introducing solids sub-surface where they are instantly subjected to vigorous agitation, issues like floating powders, excessive dusting and formation of stubborn agglomerates are eliminated.
