Batch Mixer

The design of the Alvan Blanch inclined Bed Batch Mixer has proven to be an unbeatable one for the combination of factors it offers.

The Alvan Blanch Mixer is ideal for blending a wide range of dry products of varying densities, including meal, rolled grain, cake, pellets, dried beet pulp, vitamin/mineral premix and proportions of moist product like brewer’s grain. Liquid molasses can be evenly applied in ratios of up to 10%. The Mixer is also suitable for industrial applications, able to handle granular or powdered plastics. Mixers can be fully adapted to suit a range of needs.

Unique Design

The Mixer has a gentle, but rapid action. The conveyor draws the material up the inclined base, towards a segmented agitator. Having passed through the agitator, the material tumbles backwards. Additives are introduced via the low-level intake hopper. The mixed product is discharged from the slide operated spouts.

Unlike with a vertical mixer, separation does not occur during extended mixing time or unloading. Mixing time will range (according to ratio) from five to ten minutes.
