Littleford Custom Plow Mixer
Littleford horizontal plow mixers create a mechanical, fluidized bed mixing action. The mixing tools project and hurl material away from the wall into free space in a crisscross direction, and inversely back again.
The plow separates and lifts the product in a three-dimensional motion, while the number and arrangement of the tools ensure agitation back and forth along the length of the vessel. The size, number, geometric shape, arrangement, and peripheral speed of the mixing tools are designed to achieve this mixing action for each specific application. When required, the mix action is assisted by high shear chopper devices: independent high-speed motors with customized blades for adding shear to the product mix.
Plow and Chopper blenders are used to quickly mix solids with other solids and liquids. The materials can be heated and/or dried to produce desired final consistency.
