The paddle arms sweep the feed to the top of the mixing chamber. The feed also passes between the serrated knives, where additional cutting is performed on the fibres. Finally, the mix reaches the top of the mixing chamber and gently tumbles back into the mixing chamber. The specifically designed paddles are fitted with angled sweepers, pushing the mix along the entire feeder body. These angled sweepers guarantee a complete end-to-end mixing of all the ingredients.
Mixing The FEED-FLO was developed on the Mixmax range to create a more even mix. Each paddle is essentially angled to move the feed along the entire body of the mixer. The angled paddles gently lift the feed out of the mixing chamber, allowing it to fall back down. This FEED-FLO action offers greater end-to-end mixing inside the body using very low horsepower requirements. To discharge the mix, the angled paddles are positioned to bring the feed directly towards the discharge door.
The Mixmax has built a strong reputation on the low horsepower requirement to operate the machine. A single chain and planetary gearbox are used to rotate a large sprocket at the front of the machine. This large sprocket is used to rotate the rotor and paddles. The simple design produces an even and consistent mix for all machine functions, including mixing and emptying. This practical action ensures an extremely low horsepower requirement and minimal maintenance over the machine’s life.
