Sanitary Mixing In Multi-Agitator Systems

Charles Ross

Mixing is an integral part of food, beverage, dairy and pharmaceutical production. Within these industries, one of the most common specialty mixing systems in operation are multi-shaft mixers. These devices consist of a number of agitators working in tandem; for example, a low-speed anchor agitator producing bulk flow while a saw-tooth disperser blade turns at high speed to wet-out and disperse powders. Multi-shaft mixers are extremely versatile in terms of viscosity range (some models can handle up to ~1 million cP), shear levels and operating conditions (i.e. vacuum, heating/cooling, gas purging, etc.).

This bulletin discusses a few equipment features commonly supplied on multi-shaft mixers intended for sanitary applications.
