Designed for automatic ingredient additions and high-speed mixing, the Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM) Mixer is piped to a 400-gallon jacketed tank and mounted on a compact skid. Flow meters, load cells, solenoid valves, level sensors and thermocouples are all integrated into a PLC Recipe Control Panel. Each ingredient addition and each step in the mix, drain and clean cycles are pre-programmed so that mixer speed, mixing time, temperature set-point, composition and batch weight are accurately replicated and recorded in every run. Compared to traditional batch mixing, the automated system can cut process times by 80 percent or more.
