Optimal mixing quality with short mixing times

Horizontal mixer


Horizontal mixer

When it comes to gentle product homogenization or the processing of solid mixtures, solid–liquid mixtures, or pasty mixtures, BHS batch mixers are an excellent choice. The spectrum ranges from powder mixers to heavy-duty designs. Even small quantities can be fed by manually adding them to the mixer. Highly abrasive products also used for construction are processed in machines protected by a special hard-metal plate lining welded to the interior. A common application in the food-feed industry is the preparation of baking mixes. By using special mixing elements and additionally installed shearing heads, the flour and water base substances, as well as other ingredients, are mixed at high viscosity, completely free of lumps and within the shortest time. 

In continuous operation, BHS horizontal mixers are built for efficient, automated processes in a wide variety of industrial areas. Whether it’s homogenizing, agglomerating, granulating, or humidifying, our mixers support applications ranging from the preparation of polypropylene powders in the chemical industry and flour mixtures for the food industry through to fly ash humidification in the power plant engineering sector or the production of cement mixes for building materials. In other words, BHS continuous mixers deliver operating excellence in every industry.

Benefits at a glance:

  • Intensive mixing process, batch or continuous operation
  • Perfect mixing quality
  • Fast, low-residue emptying
  • Consistently reproducible product quality
  • Additional operations such as agglomeration, granulation, and coating can be easily performed in one machine

Variable processes with frequent product changes

Variable processes with frequent product changes

BHS batch mixers are optimally suited for variable processes and frequent product changes. These horizontal mixers induce mechanical turbulence or, alternatively, process aggregate mixtures. The task of the mixer is to deliver a homogeneous mixture featuring an extremely small variation coefficient within a batch time (loading/mixing/discharge) of between two and five minutes. Decades of experience and a wide range of equipment delivered in various installation sizes, materials, and styles, speak for themselves. BHS batch mixers are available in various designs, depending on your requirements.

Continuous processes with large throughput volumes

Continuous processes with large throughput volumes

BHS continuous mixers are excellently suited to large throughput volumes in continuous processes. These horizontal mixers induce mechanical turbulence or alternatively process aggregate mixtures. Our robust technology allows for 24-hour continuous operation, 365 days a year. The raw materials are fed continuously via appropriate dosing units and nozzles, and the finished mixture is continuously discharged via suitably designed discharge elements. Thanks to special agitators, BHS continuous mixers achieve very high throughput rates and optimal backmixing despite compact installation sizes.
