Our OMCO mixer batch sizes range from 40 – 750 pounds. The patented OMCO batch mixing vessel consists of a stationary cast bowl with a contoured shaped bottom. A mixing blade is contoured to the bowl extending across the diameter of the vessel. The rotation of the mixing blade fluidizes the material and enacts a centrifugal force moving the material up the side of the mixing vessel in a circular motion. Gravitational force, assisted by deflectors when necessary, cause the material to fold and fall into the center of the mixing blade creating a vortex while exposing the material to shearing forces.
The Mixing blade configuration and speed are selected to suit each application with due consideration for mixing material and process objectives. The mixing blade itself is constructed of steel and is lined with a ceramic tile or tungsten carbide for maximum wear life.
