  • Batch Size Range: 5/10/25/50 kgs/batch

Optional Configuration

  • Stand alone Pilot mixer with control panel
  • Skid Mounted Mixer with oil phase & water phase
  • Main Mixer with one phase kettle
  • With or without homogenizer
  • Skid mounted plant with pilot size utilities

Standalone Pilot mixer with control panel

  • The Stand alone Pilot mixer comprise of only the main mixer with inbuilt control panels and Heating systems.
  • The main mixer is made of the option between semi contra/ Contra Rotary/ Planetary/ Anchor type mixing vessel with vacuum facility and jacketed for heating/ cooling requirements.
  • The agitator selection is designed suitably to mix product of higher viscosity effectively.
  • Product contact points are made of SS 316L
  • The blades keep the material effectively dispersed by adequate turbulence.
  • The hinged scraper in the main mixer keep the product in constant movement and ensure clean side walls for effective heat transfer between the side jacket and product.
  • The main mixer consists of cylindrical shell with flanged top & welded bottom dish made of SS316.
  • Mixer is ergonomically mounted on operational table top to view the product during mixing and product additions
  • Jacket is insulated with 30 mm thick mineral wool insulation (Asbestor free) and shall be cladded with 2mm SS304.
  • The top dish is provided with the following nozzles
    • SMS sight glass
    • Light glass with focus light
    • Oil phase & water phase inlet
    • Vacuum nozzle with safety valve/ vacuum gauge and vent
    • The top Dish is locked through an airtight nut locking system for comfortable opening and closing of the dish.

  • The bottom dish shall be provided with the following nozzles
    • Butterfly valve for discharge, recirculation
    • Temperature sensor.

The Agitation Assembly

  • Agitation assembly is driven by suitable geared motor with speed range of 0-60 RPM continuously variable through AC Frequency Controller
  • Shaft of the agitator is packed with mechanical seal and necessary housing.
  • Mechanized screw rod system to lift top dish for easy sanitization, cleaning and material discharges.
  • The primary advantage of the agitator design is that there is no bottom support for the agitation with PTFE bush, resulting in faster & much more effective cleaning cycles than a conventional agitation system.
  • Vessel is provided with bottom entry 1440 RPM High Speed Emulsifier system through mechanical seal with TC/TC seal face.
  • Inline recirculation line with the manufacturing vessel through high speed emulsifier ensures through mixing of product.
  • Valves are placed suitably to discharge the material after completion of batch.

Skid Mounted Pilot Plant

  • The Skid mounted full cream pilot plant comprises of the entire set of main mixing vessel supported by phase kettles, heating system, vacuum pump, Electrical heating system.
  • The main mixer is supported with phase vessel for water phase or oil phase preparation as per the customer choice
  • Material from the phase vessel will be transferred to the main mixer by vacuum.
  • The Control panel indicates the following
    • Temperatures of jacket and product
    • Speed of the main mixer stirrer and homogenizer
  • Options of changing the stirrers between semi contra, contra, anchor, paddle, schowl's propeller etc. are provided depending upon customer preference
  • Thus the plant is made versatile to formulate wide range of product like ream, tooth paste, ointments, gel, shampoo, shaving cream, hair dye etc.
