Shovel Mixes Solids in Horizontal Units
Lödige shovel for mixing solids in horizontal Ploughshare mixers

Lödige Maschinenbau GmbH offers a new type of shovel for mixing solids in horizontal Ploughshare mixers. Due to the design of the patented High Efficiency Shovel (HES), it requires less drive power compared to a standard shovel, resulting in energy savings.

In contrast to standard shovels, the solution developed by the Paderborn-based mixer experts features an opening. The latter results in a reduction of about 40% in the starting torque and reduces the idle power. A lower mixer motor output is required. The efficiency of the shovel is also apparent in the operation of the Ploughshare mixer: the torque is reduced by about 10 percent, enabling further energy savings.

The HES is suitable for industries in which heavy products are processed or where the individual particles of solid materials tend to clump. It is maintenance-friendly while achieving a mixing quality comparable to known systems.
