Munson unveils the model MX-5-S316L sanitary rotary batch mini mixer.

The new model MX-5-S316L sanitary rotary batch mini mixer on a mobile frame can de-agglomerate and blend up to 5 cu ft of dry bulk ingredients with or without liquid additions at multiple plant locations.

The mixer achieves total uniformity in 2-3 minutes, regardless of disparities in the bulk density, particle size, flow characteristics, or ratio of batch ingredients down to one part per million.

For dry materials it is equally efficient down to 15% (0.75 cu ft) of rated capacity, satisfying varied production requirements, while allowing small-scale testing prior to blending at full capacity or scaling up to high-capacity rotary batch mixers.

Proprietary mixing flights within the rotating vessel turn, cut, fold, and tumble material onto a rotating intensifier that reduces soft agglomerates into discrete particles. The 1-hp gear-reduced drive of the vessel and 2-hp drive of the intensifier are washdown rated and adjusted by variable-frequency controls housed in a NEMA 4X (IP 66) stainless steel wash-down enclosure.

The mixer is equipped with a product inlet slide for ease of feeding from bags or boxes, and an inlet-mounted spray line that allows liquid additions to be spread over a wide bed of moving material in large or trace amounts for rapid, uniform distribution. Blended batches are discharged completely through a breech-lock plug gate with no segregation or residual waste.          

The unit can be rolled to a cleaning station and accessed through a hinged door on the vessel side wall for unobstructed washdown and visual inspection of all interior surfaces.

Munson offers six rotary batch mini mixer models with maximum batch capacities of 0.25 to 15 cu ft or 2 to 1200 lb.
