PerMix PTP series Paddle Mixers are an innovative design derived from the well-known Plow Mixers (or Ploughshare Mixers, Plough Mixers). The Paddle provides the same mixing performance as a Plow but requires much less power consumption. Due to the less rotation speed of the paddles, the wearing of the mixing element for the Paddle is also less than the Plows. Besides, PerMix Paddle Mixers have a better performance dealing with the viscous/sticky materials, such as slurries, which is because the plough-shaped mixing elements tend to be wrapped by the viscous materials while the paddles don’t.
Compared with the conventional Ribbon Blenders, Paddle Mixers are superior because they are able to mix the material in a more aggressive way while keeping the similar power consumption, due to the fact that the uniquely designed paddles are more pitched than ribbons in a Ribbon Blender and move more materials in a single turn. The main difference between our PTP Paddle Mixer and PTS Plow Mixer is the mixing element: PTS Mixer uses the plough-shaped element, while PTP Mixer uses the paddle element.
PerMix PTP Paddle Mixers can be used wherever the Plow Mixers are used, including but not limited to compounding, fine mixing, dispersing, suspending, emulsifying, deaerating, tempering, accelerating chemical or physical reactions, granulating, breaking down agglomerates, etc. Both Paddle and Plow are ‘aggressive mixers’ that are well qualified for high mixture ratio processes up to 1 :1,000,000, which means the single sample of 1 ppm of a batch volume.
