Batch Mixers Batch mixers are industrial mixers that work with a single load of material at a time before being refilled with one load after another. Industrial mixers typically have two modes: batch and continuous-feed. Batch mixing is the more common of the two kinds.

What is a Batch Mixer?

Batch mixers are industrial mixers that work with a load of a single material per time before they are filled with another. The batch mixers can mix a wide range of products, from fine powders to heavy and dense powders, including cement.

Batch Mixer

Because any mixer can work in batches, there is no single mixer that can automatically be said to be a batch mixer. Continuously fed mixers can be placed in a production line to carry materials and products through an automated system.

Batch mixers can also be part of a production line, but the line would need to be brought to a standstill as the mixer completes one batch at a time.

Some of the materials used for batch mixers include beverages, medicines, glue, toothpaste, and petroleum products. In addition, batch mixers can produce cement slurries of consistent densities.

How Batch Mixers Function

This batch mixing process typically consists of three sequential steps. These steps are weighing and loading the mix components, mixing, and discharging the mixed product.

First, all the contained ingredients are mixed and loaded into the batch mixer. They are then mixed for a certain duration. In a batch mixer, the retention time is usually reached based on the time required to achieve the desired level of homogeneity in the product.

The mixing cycle can range from a few seconds, with included high-intensity periods, to a few hours. The product can also be additionally processed through heating or cooling. The resulting mix obtained from the complete batch mixing process is then discharged from the mixing vessel. This mixer discharge can be rapid, or it may endure subsequent time if the mixer is used as a surge vessel to feed a downstream process.

A mixer is not ideal for storage because this can create a bottleneck in the process. A mixer cannot store and mix different products concurrently.

Types of Batch Mixers

Types of batch mixers include high shear mixers, agitators, ribbon blenders, vacuum blenders and mixers, and paddle mixers.

High Shear Mixers

High shear mixers are mixers used in industries to utilize countercurrent mixing, which subjects substances to strong parallel forces. During this countercurrent mixing process, the mixing pan and the tools used for mixing revolve rapidly in opposite directions, resulting in the uniformity of the substance.

High Shear Mixer

Agitators

Agitators are a type of batch mixer for low shear applications. They are powered by impellers to mix substances with low viscosities. The agitators have a wide range of sizes, from small agitators used in laboratories to large industrial agitators with capacities of 10,000 gallons.

Agitator

Vacuum Mixers

This type of batch mixer can have either a horizontal or vertical construction. Vacuum mixers use a combination of low internal heat and vacuum pressure. This combination aims to blend the mixture while also removing the contained moisture.

Vacuum Mixer

Applications and Uses of Batch Mixers

Batch mixers can produce cement slurries of consistent densities, so they are widely used in cementing services. Other areas where batch mixers are significant include food processing, cosmetics, toiletry, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, the pulp and paper sector, agriculture, automotives, and industries that deal with adhesives and sealants.
