Rolling vibrators deliver good vibrations to rotary drum mixers
A custom-designed rolling vibrator aids discharge of challenging material from horizontal rotary drum mixers.
Continental Products Corp., Milwaukee., designs and manufactures horizontal rotary drum mixers (called Rollo-Mixers) for particle mixing, accurate dispersive mixing, and liquid addition to powders or granules. The mixers, which are virtually self-cleaning, provide homogeneous blending, gentle and uniform mixing, and quick cycle times. In the past, customers with challenging products experienced problems discharging sticky materials that built up on the mixing drum interior, leading to long cleanout times between production runs and excessive product waste. To solve this problem, the mixer supplier worked with a vibrator supplier to custom-design a rolling vibrator that helps release material clinging to the drum.
