Dry powder batch mixer (DMX)

The benchmark in mixing technology

The DMX series of twin-shaft batch mixers has been specially developed to meet the particular requirements of mixing dry materials.

The dry powder batch mixer moves the entire mixture in a three-dimensional spiral motion. There is also an intense exchange of materials in the turbulent zone where the two mixing cycles overlap. The energy applied is optimally converted into intense relative movements of the entire mixture. Thanks to the sophisticated mixing mechanism with the directed three-dimensional motion pattern, the speed of the mixer can be less than that for comparable single-shaft or intensive mixers while still producing a greater mixing effect. The grain structure of sensitive batch ingredients is thus preserved. If undesired agglomerations are to be disintegrated, the dry powder batch mixer can be fitted with agitators along the longitudinal side of the trough.

Compared with other mixing systems, twin-shaft mixers are filled to a much greater extent, making them more compact for a comparable throughput rate. In the case of new plants, mixers of the DMX series are ideal because of their small dimensions; for modification to existing plants, they allow the installation of a more powerful mixer in the available space. Residue-free discharge is ensured by two airtight discharge door wings.

BHS offers a wide variety of models in different sizes and versions. The mixer can be precisely tailored to your needs thanks to an extensive range of accessories and options.

Twin mixing plant: Two different mixing procedures in one system

A new unparalleled mixing plant from BHS-Sonthofen has been in operation of late at Nikolaus Müller Kalkwerk-Natursteinwerke (Müllerkalk) in Rhineland-Palatinate close to the Belgian border: It combines the continuous moistening of agricultural lime and the batch production of mixed binders for ground stabilization measures. The new plant opens up new markets for Müllerkalk, thereby compensating for the somewhat seasonally fluctuating lime market. The fully automatic loading is a special feature: it is available approximately 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
