Batch Mixing verse Continuous Mixing
At Kemutec, we can help you decide whether you need a batch mixer or continuous. The decision requires a careful understanding of various factors, such as capacity/volume of material, recipe formulation, space available etc.
In batch operation, all ingredients are loaded into the Ribbon Mixing machine together or in specified sequence. They are mixed until a homogenous material is produced and discharged as one complete mixture.
Alternatively, in a continuous mixer the ingredients are continuously fed into the mixer, by a loss-in-weight feeder, still in-line with the formulation. The mixing takes place as the material travels through to the discharge point, from where it is continuously discharged.
