Benefits at a glance. The flexible Container Mixer i4.

Innovative mixing head

The innovative, ultra-flat mixing head reduces cleaning.

The flat mixing head has a smaller surface and can therefore be cleaned more quickly and easily. The large distance between the mixing tool and the mixing head enables cleaning in the installed state. This makes extremely fast recipe changes possible. The new tool design ensures optimum mixing stream formation (vortex) with moderate temperature input.

No bottom plate for easier hygiene

By saving the bottom plate, additional cleaning effort is reduced.

Dust-proof machine components

The dust­protected machine components also contribute to reduced maintenance cycles as well as minimal cleaning requirements.

Optimized suction

Optimized extraction by means of a special dedusting device on the mixing head, which sucks off the fine dust produced in the mixing vessel after the mixing process.

Explosion-proof version ATEX/NEC

The container mixer can be designed for operation of explosive applications according to customer specification in ATEX categories.

Temperature sensor in mixing head

Temperature sensor in the mixing head for recording the product temperature during mixing. The temperature is displayed on the control panel.

Several batch sizes

One mixer for multiple batch sizes: the mixing head can be designed for 3 different container sizes.

  • lower investment volume
  • flexible batch sizes and recipe changes
  • no conversion of the mixing head necessary
  • use of existing containers possible
  • seals are attached to the mixing container
No melting and adhesion

Moderate circumferential speeds of 4 – 15 m / s reduce product buildup.

High flexibility

The container mixer i4 can be used for a wide variety of mixing tasks with many mold and motor­ combinations. The technology, components and mixing accessories are also designed for operation over several floors.

Functionality. A head start through innovative mixing technology.

As the inventor of the container mixer, we at MIXACO feel committed to innovation in industrial mixing technology. With the new i4 container mixer, we are once again taking a big step forward into the future of industrial mixing.

The container mixer i4 is a further development of the proven container mixer concept. However, the CM i4 has new features that make the container mixer even more attractive.

In contrast to the Multitool container mixer, it has a completely new type of flat mixing head, which offers significant advantages for cleaning. The mixing tools do not have to be removed for cleaning. The design without a base plate also significantly reduces the cleaning effort.

The i4 is therefore particularly suitable for applications in which different recipes require frequent cleaning of the mixer. The additional efficiency is an important cost reduction factor in your production.

The MIXACO i4 can be used for operation over several floors in your production thanks to its mobile containers and accessories, just like the container mixer Multitool and container mixer Vortex. Via appropriate connections, the mixing container can be emptied dust-free or air-tight directly into extruders, kneaders, secondary vessels, weighing and bagging devices in the next process step.

With its revolutionary mixing system, the MIXACO container mixer i4 opens up versatile application possibilities for the production of numerous products. Another option is the use of multiple container sizes with one mixer.

Industry 4.0 / IoT (Internet of Things)

This mixer represents the features of Industry 4.0 / IoT (Internet of Things) used in the mixing industry. Excellent mixing flexibility, high quality and cleaning effort reduced to a minimum are its distinguishing features.

Control System. Safe, efficient and economical.

The control of the container mixer i4 is based on a Siemens S7 PLC and meets today’s requirements for safety, efficiency and economy. The development and programming of the control system from a single source ensures optimum integration of the mixer components. Alternatively, it is also possible to use Allen-Bradley components (incl. Panelview operating unit).

The control can also be designed according to UL / NEMA. In addition, the control can be equipped with an interface for data exchange to a higher-level control.

Siemens TP700

Up to 99 mixing programs with ten work steps each can be created in tabular form via the TP700 touch control panel. Data acquisition and storage of the measured values takes place.

Allen Bradley

Control to UL / NEMA standards with an Allen Bradley PLC and Panelview control panel.

Mixing positions. Basic, mixing and cleaning position in detail.

Basic position

In the basic position, the mixing head is lowered and is loaded with a container containing the raw materials. During this process, the container is automatically positioned correctly and engaged for the lifting process.

Tilting process

The swiveling process by 180° via the motorized lifting device into the mixing position can only take place when the mixing container is securely engaged. The mixing container is upside down after the swiveling process, the raw materials fall onto the mixing tools.

Mixing position

As soon as the mixing position is reached, the mixing process can be started, the mixing tools begin to rotate.

Cleaning position

In the special cleaning position, the mixing head can be cleaned quickly and easily – without having to remove the mixing tool.

Mixing methods. Various mixing techniques can be used.

The MIXACO i4 container mixer is used in a wide variety of applications, for example in powder coatings, in masterbatches, in the preparation of toner, color concentrates or additives.

With its revolutionary mixing system, the MIXACO container mixer i4 opens up versatile application possibilities for the manufacture of numerous products.

Another option is to use multiple container sizes with one mixer to allow different batch sizes with only one machine.

  • Homogenize
  • Dispersing
  • Wetting

The most flexible container mixer available.

Our i4 industrial mixer offers all the functions and mixing processes of our proven container mixer concept. Temperature-reduced mixing is also possible with the i4.

The novel mixing system of the MIXACO container mixer i4 enables the processing of countless raw materials from a wide range of industries:

Innovative mixing tools. Designed for mixers with flat mixing head.

The MIXACO mixing tool i4 was specially developed for use in a mixer with a flat mixing head. The innovative design of the i4 tool enables good mixing stream formation, even at moderate peripheral speeds. These amount to 4 to 15 m/s, depending on the application. Excellent homogenization and color application are guaranteed.

Due to the large distance to the mixing head base, the mold can be cleaned while installed. The large distance to the mixing head and also to the container as well as the innovative geometry of the i4 mold minimize material caking, which also significantly simplifies cleaning.

The advantages of the new i4 tool

  • short mixing times with excellent homogenization of the material
  • moderate temperature entry due to low circumferential speeds (4 – 15m/s)
  • minimal product adhesion due to innovative geometry and large distances to mixing head and container
  • cleaning of the mold and mixing head can be done with the mold in place
