ScrewBeltMixer   › Vertical, cylindrical mixing hopper with
                  rotating screw belt mixing tools

                 Functional principle
                 › The mixing tools convey the material near
                  the hopper wall upwards; thereby causing
                  the material in the middle of the hopper to
                  flow downwards

                 Benefits
                 › The 3-dimensional mixing process results
                  in a very homogeneous mixture

                 Applications
                 › Production of premixes composed of various
                  flours and baking ingredients

                 Cleaning
                 › Inspection and cleaning opening

                 Construction
ScrewMixer       › Vertical, cylindrical mixing hopper with conical
                  outlet, centrally aligned conical mixing screw

                 Functional principle
                 › The mixing screw conveys the inner product
                  upwards while the outer product flows down-
                  wards by gravity, thereby causing the product
                  circulation

                 Benefits
                 › The final mixer in combination with a receiving
                  hopper above a production line
                 › Complete discharge without residual product

                 Applications
                 › Mixing of various flours and baking mixes

                 Cleaning

                 Construction
ContainerMixer   › The mixer is composed of a mixing lid with
                  integrated mixing tools. This, together with the
                  docked container, forms the mixing chamber.

                 Functional principle
                 › All the raw materials in a recipe are collected in
                  transportable containers and then docked to the
                  mixing head of the ContainerMixer. When mixing,
                  the container rotates in one direction and the
                  mixing tools in the opposite direction. Addition
                  of liquids is made through a hollow shaft.

                 Benefits
                 › Intensive, quick mixing of all components
                 › Mixing without product adhesion
                 › Extremely large filling-level range makes possible
                   the production of the most varying of amounts
                   and products with one mixer model size
                 › Ideal for frequently changing recipes
                 › Complete discharge without residual product

                 Applications
                 › Production of mixes from various raw materials,
                  e.g. baking ingredients, spice mixes

                 Cleaning
                 › Mixing chamber and tools are easy to clean
                 › Container is cleaned separately from the mixer




                 Construction
PneumaticMixer   › Vertical, cylindrical mixing hopper with filter and
                  fluidized-bed bottom.

                 Functional principle
                 › The chamber-wise supplied air intensively and
                  gently fluidizes and mixes the raw materials.
                  Through the selection of the air temperature, the
                  mixture can also be cooled or heated. The addition
                  of up to 10 % fats and other liquids is possible,
                  because the mixer is additionally equipped with
                  one or more nozzles for the addition of liquids.

                 Benefits
                 › Gentle product mixing
                 › Short mixing time with or without
                  temperature charge
                 › No moving parts in the inner mixing chamber
                 › Can be used as source hopper for dense phase
                   conveying, thereby separation-free discharge
                   and conveying are possible
                 › Metering of liquids
                 › Optional de-agglomerater

                 Applications
                 › Mixing of coarse and fine bulk materials
                 › Mixing of baking ingredients
                 › Cappuccino mixes

                 Cleaning
                 › A very good cleanability is ensured through
                  the large inspection and maintenance door
                  and by the lack of inner mixing tools                  8

                  dry materials and liquids

                 Applications
                 › Continuous production of doughs and masses,
                  e.g. sugar and chocolate masses, glazes, spice
                  pastes, potatoe/starch doughs
