Construction HorizontalMixer › Horizontal, cylindrical mixing hopper with mixing shaft and revolving mixing tools Functional principle › Revolving mixing tools distribute the pro- duct in both the circumferential and axial directions, thereby achieving an intensive mixing effect Benefits › Intensive mixing of the components › Short mixing time › Metering of liquids on the surface or under the product level › Optional de-agglomerater Applications › Production of powder mixtures › Metering of liquids Cleaning › Good access to the inner mixing area › Maintenance-friendly construction and surfaces › Quick-clean discharge valve 66 Construction 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 for good access 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 › Inspection and maintenance door for easy access to the inner mixing area Mixer Portfolio 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 Mixer Portfolio Construction ShearFlowMixer › Vertical, cylindrical mixing hopper, in which shear rods are anchored. In the hopper rotates a shaft also equipped with shear rods. The mixing tools operate according to the rotor/ stator principle. Functional principle › Continuous and intensive mixing of solids and liquids within shear gaps Benefits › Continuously operating mixer which can be matched to various mixing tasks › Quick mixing › Adjustable mixing time Applications › Production of doughs, suspensions and solutions Cleaning › Easy cleaning through mixer lid and two maintenance doors Construction Codos®Mixer › Open, continuously operating horizontal mixing trough with interlocking mixing tools Functional principle › Bulk materials, liquids and viscous materials are mixed and conveyed by the counter-rotating screw elements Benefits › Continuous, intensive and gentle mixing of all recipe components › Low energy input › Lump free and optimum compounding of dry materials and liquids Applications › Continuous production of doughs and masses, e.g. sugar and chocolate masses, glazes, spice pastes, potatoe/starch doughs Cleaning › Easy access to all mixing elements by opening the trough lid 9 Global Presence › Belgium › Brazil › China › France › Germany › India › Italy › Korea › Russia › Saudi Arabia › Singapore › United Kingdom › USA Zeppelin Reimelt GmbH Messenhäuser Str. 37 - 45 63322 Rödermark Germany Tel.: +49 6074 691-0 Fax: +49 6074 6031 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org www.zeppelin-systems.com
