Accurate Solids Mixing
B&P Littleford Mixers can be relied upon to deliver accurate mixes of multiple powders. In addition, the Mixers can be designed to handle pastes, fluids, and doughy product forms as required by the customer needs.
Incorporating Liquids Onto Solids
The mechanically fluidized bed allows for the uniform addition of varying percentages of liquids onto solids.
Dispersing Solids For Color Uniformity
The action in a plow mixer can be enhanced by use of the high-speed choppers to increase dispersive mixing. This can incorporate pigments and dyes to provide a uniform final mixed color.
Agglomerating (Particle Size Enlargement) Solids
The mixing action and shear input from the high-speed choppers in a plow mixer can be utilized to increase particle size and enhance mechanical flow properties of the solids or reduce the dustiness of the final product.
Due to the fluidized bed mixing action, the Plow Mixer can be used for vacuum drying to remove water or solvent from a filter cake or slurry.
The mixing action in a DVT Plow Mixer will allow intimate particle contact which enables chemical reactions to take place.
Use of previous unit operations like Vacuum Drying and Accurate Solids Mixing can allow the mixers to be used to pasteurize materials.
