Batch Mixers, Horizontal Mixers
AVA’s HTC series batch mixers are optimally suited for variable processes and frequent product changes. These horizontal mixers induce mechanical turbulence or, alternatively, process aggregate mixtures. The task of the mixer is to deliver a homogeneous mixture featuring an extremely small variation coefficient within a batch time (loading/mixing/discharge) of between two and five minutes. Decades of experience and a wide range of equipment delivered in various installation sizes, materials, and styles, speak for themselves. We deliver AVA batch mixers tailored to your requirements.
When it comes to gentle product homogenization or the processing of solid mixtures, solid–liquid mixtures, or pasty mixtures, AVA batch mixers are an excellent choice. The spectrum ranges from powder mixers to heavy-duty designs. The construction materials industry is a classic application field as it involves frequent recipe or color changes on a daily basis. Even small quantities can be fed by manually adding them to the mixer. Highly abrasive products also used for construction are processed in machines protected by a special hard-metal plate lining welded to the interior. A common application in the food-feed industry is the preparation of baking mixes. By using special mixing elements and additionally installed shearing heads, the flour and water base substances, as well as other ingredients, are mixed at high viscosity, completely free of lumps and within the shortest time.
- Mixing times between 15 seconds and several minutes
- Perfect mixing quality
- Short discharge times and low-residue discharge
- Optimal cleanability (in compliance with EHEDG standards on request)
- Consistently reproducible product quality
- Product filling level up to 80%
- Gentle product preparation
