Mixing Day 2016
A one-day seminar and workshop on mixing powders with attention to segregation of powder blends.
The day is organized for
Operators, plant managers, technicians and researchers working with powders in the pharmaceutical, feed and food industry, and chemical industry.
An American publication from 1930 describes about 2000 recipes for mixtures of solid and liquid substances. Over the years, scaling occurred, there are more and more types of mixtures produced and also the quality requirements are much stricter. Starting from the nineteen fifties mixing really became a field of study as well as industry, where segregation became an error source to constantly be aware of and deal with.
Mixing being a very important aspect in preventing segregation to the lowest degree possible requires a specific look at mixing technology as well as the science of powder behavior. It is important to understand the basics in regard to the requirements needed for an ideal mixer suiting your specific business. The basic requirements for an ideal mixer could for example be the ability to produce a complete mixture and maintain the quality of the product within a specific time period. Handling, usage and hygienic aspects play an important role in terms of easy emptying and cleaning of the mixer. Another important aspect to take into account is user friendliness: easy to use, level of maintenance as well as energy consumption.
