Quick-Emptying Mixer Introduced
The SEM 3000 quick-emptying mixer

The SEM 3000 quick-emptying mixer is equipped with an extra large discharge opening along the entire length of the drum. As a result, the mixed product can be discharged in seconds. This is specifically suitable for applications requiring high throughputs in combination with batch operation. Designed for the processing of solids, this model can be used in a wide variety of industrial sectors starting from the building industry to the food industry.

The large discharge opening ensures an almost residue-free discharge of the product in only two seconds. It also features quick feeding and short mixing times. Up to 25 batches per hour can be processed. Therefore, high throughputs can be achieved in batch operation with bulk material. An efficient production is ensured even in the case of frequent change in product formulation.

The batch mixer operates in accordance with the principle of the mechanically generated fluid bed introduced to mixing technology by Lödige. Ploughshare shovels rotate as mixing elements on the mixing shaft in the horizontal, cylindrical drum of the SEM 3000. In this way, powdery, grainy, and fibrous products are moved in a three-dimensional direction, whereby all of the product is constantly involved in the mixing process. This ensures high-speed, precision mixing. The mixing elements are specially shaped to lift off the product away from the drum wall and to prevent particles from being crushed ensuring gentle processing of the product. The mixer guarantees short mixing times and high mix quality, as well as an excellent reproducibility of the batches. Designed with regard to profitability, the SEM 3000 is also characterized by low maintenance and easy access to all machine parts.

The new SEM is available in four sizes with drum volumes from 1600 up to 3000 l. As an option, the mixer can be equipped according to ATEX in case of use in a hazardous environment.
