Producers of infant formula bear a great responsibility. Baby food must be healthy and 100% pure. These high-quality demands are only met if the raw material components are prepared in quality-controlled systems. In the manufacturing process for dietetic foodstuffs, precision mixers are always involved for the admixing of trace elements and vitamins. This process must be carried out with high precision where the dosage and the mixing quality are concerned.

With these requirements in mind, amixon has developed an interesting innovation: a single-shaft mixing system with comparatively small dimensions. This precision mixer is characterized by particularly short mixing and discharging times, among other things. It is capable of processing large product quantities in a short cycle time.

Ideal mixing qualities and excellent particle protection are achieved in a new way. The mixing container consists of a silo-like container in whose center a large cone is inserted at the bottom. It has a smooth, streamlined design and supports the flow process of the mixtures. Helical mixing tools convey the goods upwards in a spiral-like motion. This process takes place along the wall of the container. Having arrived at the top, the goods slide downwards and are directed to the outside once again by the cone. The homogenization process takes place in the marginal area between the upward screwing and the downward movement. This process is gentle and effective. After approximately 20 to 30 revolutions an ideal mixing quality is obtained that cannot be further improved in practice. The displacer then lowers itself by a few centimeters, so that the emptying takes place quickly, off-center and segregation-free. The mixer discharges up to 100%.
