Selecting a mixer with help from your mixer manufacturer

Using your mixer manufacturer's expertise and test equipment can help you select a mixer that meets your needs. This article's first section describes how to determine your mixing requirements. Later sections describe how to select a mixer manufacturer, how to devise and run mixing tests, and how to solicit a price quotation using a specification. The final section discusses how to select a mixer.

Selecting a mixer that will effectively produce the mixture you need can be a complex process. Using the resources and expertise of your mixer manufacturer -- especially the manufacturer's test center [or rental test equipment] -- can help you make the right decision. Several steps are involved, including determining your mixing requirements, selecting a mixer manufacturer, devising and running mixing tests, soliciting a price quotation, and, finally, selecting a mixer based on the information you've gathered. [Editor's note: For more information on types of mixers, see "Selecting the right mixer: Batch or continuous," by A. Kirk Brennan Jr. in Powder and Bulk Engineering, January 1990, page 38.]
