Vertical kneader

The advantages compared with horizontally arranged kneading blades include low-maintenance seals on the kneading shafts, the option of processing minimum quantities and the possibility of using a number of kneading bowls.

Options:

  • Kneading bowl with bottom discharge valve
  • Interchangeable kneading bowls
  • Vacuum emptying system (press discharge)
  • Vacuum system
  • Temperature control system
  • Sensors for temperature measurement in the product and in the double jacket
  • Wear-resistant coatings
  • 3000 Series machine: additional drive for the central kneading blade for a variable speed ratio of approx. 1,2 to 10
  • Ex-protected design in accordance with ATEX regulations
  • Upstream and downstream systems, e.g. dosage, temperature control and filling systems
Advantages of vertical kneading machines at a glance:
  • Intensive kneading and dispersion of high viscosity products
  • Shorter processing times with improved product quality
  • No seals in contact with the product
  • Minimum processing capacity of 10% of the total container volume
  • Infinitely variable speed adjustment of the kneading blades via a frequency converter
  • Automation possible in accordance with customer requirements
  • Low-maintenance seals made from high quality materials
  • Operation with a number of kneading bowls possible (available on request)
Applications for vertical kneading machines:
  • Dental compounds (plastic or ceramic)
  • Technical ceramics
  • MIM (Metal Injection Molding)
  • CIM (Ceramic Injection Molding)
  • Pharmaceuticals and cosmetics
  • Lubricants
  • Color concentrates (printing inks)
  • Battery compounds
