Apr 30 Why Use A Drum Mixer for Industrial Food Mixing?
Gentle Mixing Made Easy with an Industrial Drum Mixer
Manufacturing trail mixes, spice mixes, and dry chemicals on a large scale often requires gentle, continuous mixing. You want to mix the product thoroughly and sometimes add coating or flavoring without changing the texture. So, how to achieve gentle mixing without pulverizing or damaging the consistency of the product? That’s where a drum mixer comes in.
Tumbling drums are built specifically for continuous, gentle mixing of friable products such as trail mixes, spice mixes, and dry chemicals. Or, if you need to distribute and mix dry or liquid coatings and additives onto products like pet food, breakfasts cereals, granola, and snack foods, enrobing/coating drums are one of the best ways to get consistent food coating results.
A drum mixer can do more than just mix!
Tumbling drums can be utilized for rotary scalping and clump breaking, for gentle processing of cooked rice, pectin fruit snacks, raisins, and dehydrated fruits. Or, they can be used as a rotary polishing drum for dried peas, lentils, and other legumes.
