Determining your powder's temperature rise during mixing
High temperatures during batch powder mixing can harm your mixture. Some materials will degrade. Others will become sticky, impairing their flowability. For these reasons, it's important to know how to determine your material's actual temperature rise during mixing. When you know that, you'll be able to adjust mixing time and other factors to mix safely and efficiently.
Two factors increase the temperature of the powder being mixed: the amount of energy being applied for the mixing and the mixing cycle time. Often users forget about the first when determining the second. Yet you must take both into account.
