Single-shaft continuous mixer

The single-shaft continuous mixer of type MFKG is a continuous mixing system that was developed for the intensive mixing of fine materials. Dry and moist, pasty as well as suspension-like mixtures can be produced continuously with the single-shaft continuous mixer. The special shape and arrangement of the mixing tools ensures an intensive mixing process. What sets the BHS single-shaft continuous mixer apart is the self-cleaning, flexible rubber trough, which prevents build-up on the inner trough wall. Liquids are added through nozzles in the inlet area, which facilitates early and extensive moistening of the entire feed material.

Benefits at a glance:

  • Consistently superior mixture quality
  • Self-cleaning rubber trough
  • Large maintenance flap
  • Secure investment thanks to high operational reliability
  • Low wear
  • Robust design

Highlights

BHS_MFKG-0520_2014-03_R-11403_09_F_S_C_R.psd

Consistently superior mixture quality

The design of the mixer inlet, the shape and arrangement of the mixing tools and the selection of the appropriate speed ensure a consistently high mixture quality. The high speeds cause highly turbulent relative movements in the mixture throughout the entire volume of the mixing trough, thus delivering consistently homogeneous mixing results in a very short time. Moreover, undesirable agglomerations are reliably broken up by shear forces.

Self-cleaning rubber trough

A unique selling point of the MFKG single-shaft continuous mixer is the self-cleaning process of the rubber trough. The pulsating motion and flexing effects of the rubber jacket prevent hardened mixing material from caking on the trough wall. Owing to this design, the mixer continuously cleans itself during operation.

Large maintenance flap

The rubber trough of the mixer is split in the longitudinal direction over the entire mixing section. This results in a large and easily accessible maintenance opening. Gas springs or hydraulic cylinders assist in operating the maintenance flap.

Secure investment thanks to high operational reliability

Even under the most difficult of conditions, the robust, durable design ensures maximum operational reliability and thus long-term investment security.

Technical systems

Design

MFKG_mischanlage_5-1.psd

Optimized mixing process [1]

The BHS single-shaft continuous mixer’s rapidly rotating mixing tools greatly accelerate the various components of the formulation. The centrifugal force along the inner wall of the mixer thus creates a ring of mixed material with turbulent zones. The mixing tools generate highly intensive relative movements of the mixed material. This results in an optimal mixing action and a consistently high level of homogeneity. Materials that are generally difficult to mix or that are introduced in vastly different proportions can also be processed.

Inlet chute with efficient liquid injection [2]

In the single-shaft continuous mixer MFKG, liquids that are part of the formulation are only not added in the mixing zone, but also – in contrast to conventional systems – directly in the mixer inlet using special nozzles. This creates a wide spray mist that perfectly moistens all particles of the feed material already during feeding. The mixing tools subsequently ensure an even and intensive mixing of the pre-moistened mixture.

High-performance drive [3]

The drive configuration and performance is parameterized according to the application and the customer’s requirements. The standard drive system comprises a high-performance electric motor, an easily accessible V-belt drive and a robust, highly efficient worm gear. Alternative drive concepts can be implemented to accommodate special requirements.

Customized mixing tools [4]

Depending on the application, the mixer can be equipped with different mixing tools to achieve optimum material acceleration, relative movement and shearing effects. The mixing arms and blades are easily exchangeable. The mixing shaft is smooth to prevent caking.

Large maintenance flap [5]

Thanks to a large maintenance hatch, the mixer is easily accessible across the entire mixing section. Maintenance work can thus be carried out quickly and easily.

Seals [6]

Depending on the task, special axial face seals or gas seals secure the mixing shaft to prevent mixing materials from entering the shaft bearings.

Rubber trough

Self-cleaning rubber trough

Self-cleaning rubber trough

The mixing trough of the MFKG single-shaft continuous mixer consists of a flexible rubber jacket tightly fitted into a steel frame. It is made from a highly durable industrial material that is resistant to temperatures of up to 150 °C even in continuous operation. During operation, slight vibrations and flexing effects of the rubber trough prevent caking of hardenable elements of the mixture on the trough wall. This ensures a continuous self-cleaning process during mixer operation. Due to the elasticity of the rubber jacket, the friction loss caused by caking is reduced and, in addition, the wear of the mixing tools is significantly reduced.

Options

Automatic central lubrication

Automatic central lubrication

When the machine is in operation, the central lubrication unit continuously supplies the internal shaft seals with barrier grease, thus reducing maintenance work.

Water control system

MFKG-1032-weiss-90_F_C_R_S.psd

Water control system

Depending on the amount of solids added, liquids are introduced via a fully automatic metering station. This consists of a flow meter, control valve, metering valve, pressure regulator and pressure switch.

Hydraulics-driven cover opening

Hydraulics-driven cover opening

A hydraulic actuation mechanism is available to allow for easier and faster opening of the machine cover for maintenance and inspection.

Auxiliary motor for mixer shaft
