Dual Action Mixers Improve Uniformity
Sharpe Mixers introduced custom-configured, dual action and tandem mixers for applications where users have one tank and multiple mixing requirements. Sharpe Dual Motion Mixers combine a high-shear or high-intensity mixer with a low-shear, gentle acting agitator. A typical configuration designed to improve product uniformity includes a center mounted low speed anchor mixer or scrape anchor mixer, which moves product into a mixing zone where a secondary agitator thoroughly blends.
Sharpe Dual Motion Mixers can utilize scrapers to assist in sweeping the side walls of a tank. A helix-auger configuration for high viscosity applications requiring low shear mixing is also available. Typical applications include manufacturing food products processed with gravy, sauces with thickeners, and chemical slurries.
