A new sanitary Model RCM-60X20-SS Rotary Continuous Mixer from Munson Machinery blends primary bulk ingredients, minor ingredients and/or liquid additions uniformly in one to two minutes residence time (average), at low cost per volume of material blended.
Unlike mixers that force agitators through stationary material, the Rotary Continuous Mixer design employs a 6 m long by 152 cm diameter rotating cylinder with internal mixing flights that impart a gentle tumbling action, distributing particles with each degree of drum rotation with no shear or heat generation, eliminating or minimizing degradation.
A 22 kW gear-reduced motor rotates the mixing drum at slow speeds on external trunnion rollers, minimizing energy consumption and eliminating the need for shaft seals.
All-stainless construction, smooth interior surfaces, the lack of shaft seals and unobstructed interior access, allow rapid sanitizing and inspection of all material contact surfaces.
Other models range in diameter from 41 to 183 cm, and in length from 122 to 732 cm.
Typical applications include bulk foods such as cereals, and snack foods.
