Hybrid powder mixers are designed to quickly and efficiently mix and pump wet and dry ingredients for the hygienic industry
The Alfa Laval Hybrid Powder Mixer is a patented hygienic mobile unit that both disperses powders into liquids quickly and efficiently and pumps the resulting solution at outlet pressures of up to ~5 barg, all using a single motor. This versatile, easy-to-use mixer produces homogeneous products at high dry matter concentrations and high productivity. The mixer is an excellent choice for use in a wide range of dairy, beverage and food powder mixing applications, e.g. for incorporating thickeners and stabilizers like pectin and xanthan and emulsifiers in the concentrations required in most applications. It is also capable of
producing recombined milk with more than 50% dry matter.
The Hybrid Powder Mixer is comprised of a two stage pump with one rotor-stator stage and one pump stage. The unit is fitted with a single motor and a frequency converter. A funnel is used for introduction of powder through an injector system which can be isolated using a hygienic C-Ball valve. The construction is mounted on a stainless steel frame and the liquid inlet is equipped with a sight glass and a butterfly valve.
