Inox-Fer Powder Mixers

Inox-Fer offers Powder Mixers able to perfectly mix multiple types of ingredients, starting with low viscosity products to a wide range of products that including those that are highly difficult to dissolve.

Consisting of a tank and hopper, they are the ideal solution for companies looking for a simple but at the same time functional solution with the possibility of customization.

The principle of operation consists of a centrifugal pump that sucks fluid from the tank creating a double Venturi effect under the hopper. The product contained in the hopper is sucked into the liquid at a very powerful rate in order to ensure a perfectly homogeneous mixing result. Once the product is dissolved the mixture is kept in recirculation inside the tank for a few minutes and is then transferred to the point of use by the same pump.

Powder Mixers are suitable in 2 versions:

  • DR Powder Mixers series for lowly viscous blends
  • TMV Powder Mixers series for high viscous blends

DR Powder Mixer

The DR Powder Mixer series has been designed to dissolve smaller amounts of product and work with lowly viscous blends. This Powder mixer series is a compact unit, equipped with removable bag holder by the hopper.

Based on the hydrodynamic paradox a centrifugal pump sucks the fluid from the tank creating a double Venturi effect under the hopper. The product contained in the hopper is sucked in and pushed into the liquid at a very powerful rate to ensure a perfectly homogeneous mixing. Once the product is dissolved the mixture is kept in recirculation inside the tank for a few minutes in order to secure a greater homogeneity, at this point it is transferred to the point of use by the same pump.

Available options:

• AISI 316L contact surfaces

• Automatic valve for powders suction

• Spray ball for powder mixer sanitation mounted on hopper cover

• Internal lump breaker grid for Hopper

• Lump breaker rotating shaft (mounted inside the hopper)

• Vibrator for hopper

TMV Powder Mixer

Inox-Fer TMV Powder Mixer can rapidly dissolve a large number of additives with different kinds of liquids utilizing a powerful process resulting in a completely homogeneous mixture. The TMV Powder Mixer has been designed to work with highly viscous blends and to exceptionally dissolve products such as starches, proteins, pectin and caseinates.

Mixing times are very short with the TMV powder mixer. The dispersion / solubilization is instantaneous, also the sugar and the salt are crushed and solubilized immediately. No type of lump is formed and the problem of those harder granular ingredients that do not dissolve and settle on the filters of any other subsequent processing stages is eliminated.

Operating principle

Thanks to the depression generated by the underlying centrifugal pump and the force of gravity, the powders are conveyed from the hopper to the proximity of the centrifugal pump chamber entrance, where they meet the liquid, which enters tangentially. At this point, in the chamber the centrifugal force generated by the rotating blades mixes and pushes the blend through a specially designed honeycomb filter that atomizes the mixture homogeneously, avoiding clots. Since the breaking up takes place in the pump’s chamber, further in-line powder mixers or additional tools are not generally required, as well as a second pump for the recirculation or for transferring the blend to another point of the plant. In some cases, the high density of the blend and / or long transferring distances (generally greater than 30 feet) may require the use of a second pump, sized according to specific needs.
