FEATURES & OPTIONS

Hayes & Stolz has over 60 years of experience in developing mixing technology. Our extensive knowledge of various applications in diverse industries uniquely qualifies us to recommend the right features and options to enhance the performance of our mixers and improve mixing productivity. Every Mixer is custom designed and manufactured specifically for the customer’s application.

RIBBON ASSEMBLIES

All mixer main shafts are constructed from a solid steel shaft precision machined to exacting tolerances.

COVER OPTIONS

Mixer covers are often a complex part of the mixer design. Covers not only provide the protection required by OSHA from the moving parts; they also provide the means for containing/controlling dust from the mixing process; they provide for methods of ingredient addition; and they often provide access for inspection and cleaning. H&S mixer covers can be custom designed to allow for the best integration with the customer’s operation.

LIQUID ADDITION

For processes that require the addition of liquids, Hayes & Stolz can provide liquid manifolds and/or spray nozzles. Manifold/spray nozzle locations will be determined for optimum performance, directing the liquid(s) onto the material being mixed with minimum spray on exposed mixer components. This is done to minimize build-up on the agitator assembly and mixer body.

DISCHARGE LOCATIONS AND OPTIONS

The mixer discharge location is generally dictated by the installation requirements for the mixer and the type and location of the equipment the mixer will discharge into. Hayes & Stolz will locate the discharge as required to satisfy these requirements and will also design and manufacture the ribbon or paddle assembly to sweep the product toward the opening promoting full discharge of the mixed product. The most common discharge locations are bottom end (preferred) and bottom center.

SURGE BINS AND UNLOADING CONVEYORS

The addition of a surge bin, fitted to the discharge of a mixer, increases the production capacity of the mixing process. The surge bin allows the mixer to be quickly emptied, the next batch of ingredients to be delivered to the mixer, and the mixing process for the new batch to be started, while the mixed product in the surge bin is delivered to downstream processes at the desired rate.

SHAFT SEALS

Hayes & Stolz offers a variety of seal options for the main shaft penetration through the end plates. The selection of seals that are properly suited for the mixing application is important in order to minimize leakage and reduce premature shaft wear that results in expensive repairs and down time.

HIGH SPEED CHOPPERS

High Speed Choppers for Horizontal Batch Mixers are through-the-wall dispersion units used for de-agglomerating and high speed dispersion of small lumps and balls that are often difficult to handle during normal mixing. During mixing the ribbons (or paddles) continuously sweep product across the chopper(s). As the rotating chopper blades impact the product at 3600 rpm, lumps and agglomerates are broken up; fibrous materials are ripped apart for size reduction; and/or color pigments can be broken up for more uniform color dispersion. The addition of High Speed Choppers will result in high quality, more thorough mixing and faster mix times for difficult ingredients.
