PerMix PTS series Ploughshare Mixer is one of our two types of Tubulent Mixer. The other one is PTP series Paddle Mixer.
Similar to PerMix PRB series Ribbon Mixer, PTS ploughshare mixer is so versatile that it can handle nearly all types of materials including drying material, powdery granular, short fibered substance, moist solids with liquids, pasty material and higly viscous masses.
The PerMix PTS series Ploughshare Mixer can be used for numerous processers, including compounding, fine mixing, dispersing, suspending, emulsifying, deaerating, tempering, accelerating chemical or physical reactions, granulating, breaking down agglomerates, etc. It is particularly suited for such difficult processes as mixing trace elements in proportions of 1 in 100,000 to 1 in 1,000,000 parts.
PerMix PTS series Ploughshare Mixer consists of a centrally mounted horizontal shaft that rotates within a cylindrical container, ploughs or other shaped mixing elements are attached to the centrally mounted shaft, special openings at the top for feeding materials, flush fitting access doors at the front of the mixer, a flush fitting discharge valve at the bottom of the mixer which is pneumaticly or manually operated, and a complete drive unit.
The mixing container is filled from 30% to 70% capacity, allowing space for individual particles to be dispersed within the main area of the mixer. The plough-shaped mixing elements create intense axial and radial movement causing the product to move throughout the mixing space. The shape and angle, together with the adjustment and rotation of the mixing elements and drum wall, cause the product to be lifted off the surface of the drum wall. The product is automatically discharged while the machine is still running so that any separation is prevented.
Lab & Pilot Applications:
PerMix is able to offer lab & pilot size ploughshare mixers for Research & Development purpose. The small size machine is very helpful for customers when the ingredients for R&D are expensive, and to meet the badget limit at the first stage. With the good performance of the lab & pilot mixer, it is easy to scale up for a medium size or even bigger one.
Special Design with Multi-choppers:
The installation of PerMix Multi-chopper in the basic PTS mixer enables the breaking down of agglomerates during the mixing process. Together with the mixing element, the PerMix Multi-chopper removes lumps in the initial product, chops pasty adhesives and hinders the formation of agglomeration during the moisturizing of powdered substances. The PerMix Multi-chopper is operated independently by its own motor.
- Different types of mixing element for different materials
PerMix provides mainly two types of mixing elements – plough (for PTS Mixer) and padde (for PTP Mixer). Both have their advantages: the plough shaped element can easily penetrate through the dense and thick powder or paste materials, while the paddle element can cover an even wider range of viscousity.
- Construction material
We are able to offer mixers with contact part to be built by Carbon steel, SS304, SS316/316L, Titanium, Duplex stainless steel, Hastelloy, etc. For abrasive materials we offer hardened steel as the contact part. Also we produce mixers all by stainless steel in order to meet the high hygienic requirement.
- Feeding & Discharging
A variety of feeding & discharging methods can be selected by the customers.
- Drive system
Drive system by geared motor, cycloidal reducer, worm reducer, belt or chain transmission, etc.
- Continous operation
We can supply machines for continuous work when a large capacity per hour is needed for the same material.
- Vacuum drying & deaerating
The mixer can be designed for vacuum drying & deaerating for special applications.
- Heating/Cooling jacket
Jacketed trough for heating/cooling operation
PerMix PTS series Ploughshare Mixer has a wide range of applications:
