Gentle Mixing for Improved End Products
Kreyenborg presents outstanding competence in bulk handling at this year’s K
Automatized comprehensive concept solutions all around bulk handling are among the core competences of Kreyenborg gmbH & Co. KG from Senden, Germany. At his exhibition stand in hall 9, stand A-55, this machine builder with more than 50 years of experience in the industrial fields of drying, crystallizing, storing, mixing, conveying and metering of plastic materials shows the example of an MBM Quick Mixer with a volume capacity of 500 liters. This Mixer is perfectly suited for the gentle mixing of Masterbatch, Compound or Glass Fiber pellets.
The Mixer shown is the smallest of the MBM series, which covers volume capacities ranging up to 20,000 liters. With these types of Quick Mixers, Kreyenborg perfectly meets the standards set by its customers concerning gentle handling of pellets, high accuracy of mixing and simple and quick methods of cleaning. The slowly turning big mixing screw and the short residence time in the Mixer ensure the gentle treatment of the material. Optimum cleaning possibilities are ensured by the big cover lid flap and, in the bigger types of Mixers, by one or several manholes. The Mixer, which can be designed either as a standard or as a stainless steel unit, does not have any dead spots, concealed corners or edges, and this facilitates simple and quick cleaning at any time to prepare the interior for a product change.
Apart from the standard models, Kreyenborg offers customized Special Mixer Models such as complete and automatized Complete Production Lines, from the Silo through the Feeder up to the Conveyor. “Especially in Mixers and Silos, special solutions are our standard”, explains the sales manager, Matthias Draganski. “We realize individual and suitable solutions for our customers, perfectly geared to the constructional constraints of the production area and the special requirements arising from the material properties of fibres, fluff, powders, pellets or flakes.”
