A robust equipment, the Horizontal Mixer is indicated to mix, efficiently, several types of clays employed in the ceramics industry, also promoting moistening and homogenization of the paste; all in a single operation. This operation is useful for both the cured and pre-moistened clay and the clay that is moistened in the own mixer.
The clay mixing and moistening takes place by means of gradual displacement of the clay inside a mixer tank, provided with two horizontal shafts fitted with dual fixed blade rows, which are driven by a set of twin outlet gears. It is possible to change the inclination angle of the mixer blades, aiming to increase or reduce the clay mixing time in the mixer, thus changing the equipment yield according to the extrusion line demands.
Note: Hourly productions are estimates and refer to wet material weight.
The above indicated productions refer to ideal working conditions, and may vary depending on the characteristics and grain size of processed clays.
