HOW IT WORKS

Lab Mixer

SPECIFICATIONS

The K1-Lab Mixer is designed with a touch screen control for easy programming and data viewing. A thermal probe gives a report of temperature in real-time. There is a resettable elapsed mixing timer that provides for total mix process cycle times. A pre-programmable mix design can be input into the control. The control can also store and repeat mix cycles as well as communicate with other devices.

Features:

  • Electronic individually controlled speeds of pan and rotor, switchable from ft/sec to m/sec.
  • Timer that starts/stops with the machine.
  • Pre-programmable mix design times
  • Input or adjust pan and rotor speeds before or during operation
  • Data record of operating functions can be exported to a USB or other device
  • Pan heating and cooling available.

The Effect of Rotor Styles on High Shear Mixing

In addition to the rotating pan, all high shear mixers manufactured by Lancaster Products larger than a K3.5 have two independently motor driven mixing tools inside the pan which are responsible for proper mixing, pelletizing, and granulating of materials: the plow and the high speed rotor.  The plow continually sweeps the entire surface of the pan bottom to prevent material from accumulating on the bottom and enhances the overall mixing action.  However, the most important tool of all is the high-speed rotor, which rotates counter direction to the pan causing a shearing action inside of the mixing cavity.  This high-speed rotor not only agitates the mixture, but significantly influences the control of the entire process.  While there are just two main style of standard rotors, we can custom configure the rotor to optimize all mixing processes.
