Equipment for mixing in pharmaceutical and food industries
Mixers for powders using in clean rooms must have specific requirements
The rotary mixers for powders are used in various pharmaceutical and food processes for the mixing of raw materials, intermediates and finished products.
The CIP and SIP of rotating mixers for powders are completely automated to ensure maximum hygiene of the production for all the uses and with all types of product: the machining residues sometimes differ for different properties packaging and the automated washing chamber mixing should be able to remove any kind of dirt.
In mixers for powders is very important to the safety area mixing must in fact be well-defined and closed to avoid contact with the operators.
The simplest solution is to employ alarm devices connected to protection bulkheads closable only from the outside: the mixing of the powders is started only if the area of mixing is free.
For the construction of the rotary mixers for powders is preferable to use high strength materials such as austenitic stainless steel, duplex steels, nickel and its alloys, copper and its alloys, and carbon steels.
