Gentle controlled vibration of the mixing trough fluidizes ingredients on entry where a cut and fold mixing rotor provides agitation. Material flows through the blender by gravity, making it com- pletely self-regulating to changes of in-feed rate. The unit's simple, rugged design of- fers dust-tight operation, easy clean out, and years of maintenance-free operation. The blender is available in capacities up to 1500 cu ft/hr. Vibra Screw Inc., Totowa, NJ 973-256-7410 www.vibrascrew.com` Variable Intensity Continuous Blender Munson Machinery introduces a variable inten- sity blender model VIM-124-SS with six injec- tion ports, allowing liquid additions in small to large volumes to be combined with bulk food, chemical, or pharmaceutical materials to produce pastes and slurries at high rates. Constructed of stainless steel, the sanitary unit can achieve homogenous blends in as little as 20 seconds residence time depending on mate- rial characteristics, yielding up to 200 cu ft of throughput per hour. A large-diameter solid main shaft rotating within the cylindrical vessel is supported by externally mounted bearings with air-purged seals. Large radius welds con- necting paddle arms to the shaft permit rapid cleaning and sanitizing. Munson Machinery Company, Inc., Utica, NY 800-944-6644 www.munsonmachinery.com Fast, Gentle, Precision Mixing The Bella twin-shaft fluidized zone mixer features a design that achieves fast, high-capacity, thorough, precision mixing of either dry bulk solids or liquids with solids. Regardless of particle size, shape, or density, materials are mixed with a fast, efficient, and gentle ac- tion with typical mixing times of 15 to 30 seconds. A weightless zone created by low-speed counter-rotating shafts generates low friction without shear. This makes the Bella mixer ideal for abrasive products and fragile products that cannot tolerate rough handling. Even flakes or spray dried bodies remain intact. The Bella mixer includes access doors that not only increase accessibility, but also make it easier to clean when necessary. It is available in mild steel and stainless steel construction. Many options, sizes, finishes, and materials of construc- tion are available upon request. Dynamic Air Inc., St. Paul, MN 651-484-2900 www.dynamicair.com Mixers MAP mixers are used to mix, blend, humidify, agglomer- ate, crumble, or condition solids or pastes into the user's desired criteria. A wide range of mixers are available in carbon steel, stainless 304, and stain- less 316. They offer application specific accessories, such as mixing tools, lump breaking choppers, liq- uid injection, thermal jackets, or the inclusion of special liners as wear protection or to avoid built- up of product.
