Chemical Plant & Engineering has developed a system where paddle technology may be retrofitted into existing mixer bodies to enhance mix time, accuracy, and throughput without the cost associated with a new mixer purchase.
Benefits of Retrofitting Your Mixer
Increased mix accuracy
Shorter time to uniform mix (as quick as 60s)
Higher mix repeatability (lower CV)
Maximised mixing capacity (throughput)
CPE paddle mixers offer significantly faster mixing, higher throughput, and lower energy consumption than ribbon blenders.
Ribbon Blender vs CPE Mixer
CPE High Efficiency Mixer
Example of Powder Mixer Retrofit
CPE retrofitted a single paddle system into the existing Ribbon Blender body used to produce for Animal Feed production.
Existing – Ribbon Blender (2 tonne)
Retrofit – Retrofitted with CPE Single Paddle System
18.5 tonnes/hour (i)
CV = 12
CV = 5.6
Outcomes were as follows:
Mixing capacity increased by 80%
Reduced power consumption
CV improvement from 12 to 5.6
Minimum change to structure and utility interfaces
