Twin-shaft mixing technology is suitable for all formulas and offers a wide range of benefits. The mixing procedure has a significant effect on the quality of the mixture produced and the economic efficiency of the production process. Watch the video to learn more about the use of the dry powder batch mixer (DMX) at the dry-mortar plant of Rethmisch GmbH.
Unlike single-shaft systems, which move the mixture to the center of the machine, the three-dimensional mixing concept of the twin-shaft batch mixer produces a more intensive exchange of materials, leading to short mixing times while consuming less energy.
BHS worm gears boast maximum operational reliability and a long service life, even under extreme loads. The gearboxes are attached to the mixing shafts without rigid connection to the mixing trough. The selected material pairing allows the BHS worm gearbox to compensate the load changes that occur each time the mixer is filled.
All of our twin-shaft batch mixers are equipped with high-quality motors. They are specifically designed for the load cycles generated.
The power is transferred via V-belt drives. Positioning the V-belt drives on the outside of the drive provides good accessibility when performing maintenance work.
The adjustable torque support is used for the alignment of the gearboxes. It also allows the gearbox to be fastened to the mixing trough without pressure, avoiding unnecessary loads on the gearbox toothing. This special feature is an essential prerequisite for achieving a long gearbox life.
A low-maintenance elastic coupling is installed between the gearboxes to synchronize the two mixer shafts.
The mixer shafts are reliably sealed with axial face seals. The shaft bearings are mounted on bearing lanterns and are physically separated from the shaft seals. This significantly increases the operational reliability of the mixer shaft bearings.
The hydrodynamic fluid coupling prevents both mechanical and electrical load peaks. Its use is recommended in particular if unstable electricity supply conditions prevail on site. Alternatively, the mixer can be operated via a frequency converter or soft-start devices.
We have years of experience and comprehensive expertise when it comes to retrofitting existing mixing plants. The dry powder batch mixer is ideal when retrofitting in tight spaces thanks, to its compact design. As an added benefit, the use of a high-performance dry powder batch mixer can significantly increase the throughput rate of the plant. Installing a mixer with a higher performance and bigger capacity as well as adjusting the weighing system, dosing and control system can make the plant substantially more competitive.
The mixing tools, based on our spiral-blade mixing mechanism, are adapted to the material density, the abrasiveness of the batch ingredients and the need for residue-free emptying. All versions are attached exclusively with screws. All blades are adjustable.
The mixer can be equipped with agitators along the longitudinal side of the trough for the purpose of disintegration undesired agglomerations. They are very efficient due to the high filling level of the mixer, as they are in constant contact with the circulating mixture.
