The blend occurs exclusively through circulation at low speed, so that physical product characteristics are retained. The system therefore particularly fulfills the requirements of the pharmaceutical industry.
The PTS Batchmixer® mixes powders with a considerable ratio difference (1: 10,000) and attains nearly perfect homogeneity. Based on the PTS technology, the system discharges and mixes material by vacuum and pressure. Powders can be drawn automatically from drums, bags or directly from any process equipment over longer distances, if necessary. The PTS Batchmixer® is composed of a main tank with an installed reflector in the upper part. On this container a PTS Powder Transfer System with two tangential entrances is installed, which draws the powder and further transfers it into the mixing tank. The powders then circulate in this container for a certain period of time. The mixing effect already starts by the impingement of the powder streams when entering the PTS body, which positively affects both the overall speed as well as the efficiency of the entire process. Depending on the material, this process is repeated in 3-5 cycles.
After completion of the mixing process, the system can be emptied fully automatically under high containment with an additional PTS into the next processing step.
Common problems such as product loss, abrasion, weak containment or elaborate cleaning can be avoided with the PTS Batchmixer®.
Sanitary aspects play a further important role in this system. Due to the absence of moving or rotating mechanical components, the maintenance efforts are kept to a minimum. The device can be easily cleaned and sterilized (CIP / SIP).
The quality of the mix can be controlled with the MPTS sampler, whereby the powder samples can be drawn directly from the equipment without mechanical means and without having to interrupt the process.
The stainless steel PTS Batchmixer® stands for:
- Efficient mixing for applications of 2 – 5000 l product volume
- High containment
- Entry of additional products without process interruption
- Sampling without process interruption
- No mixing element (rotating parts)
- Minimum maintenance efforts
- Operation possible under exclusion of oxygen
- Efficient cleaning (CIP / SIP)
Design and options
- Electropolished stainless steel
- HC22, internal coating, plastic, etc.
- Load cells
- Emptying device for non-free flowing powders
- Sterile unit
- Mobile unit
The PTS Batchmixer® is widely used in small to large-scale production. The equipment is seamlessly integrated into the production process, for example with a subsequent continuous liner packaging process or previous big bag and bag / drum discharging as well as directly after various process equipment. The possibilities are flexible and the direct linkage of the different process steps via PTS greatly optimizes in-house logistics.
