Horizontal Ribbon Mixer


Thorough blending doesn’t have to waste power. Our horizontal mixers give you a precise match of horsepower-to-load requirements. We ensure the motor is accurately sized for energy efficiency by taking the time to analyze your product, process, and capacity needs. The same holds true for the rest of the machine as well. You get exactly the features you want! 

We offer sizes from 0.25 cu. ft. to 1500 cu. ft.; in configurations from standard, to short, to long and trough designs from “U”, to cylindrical, to obround. 

Our mixers can be directly scaled up based on testing results because of our agitator design. Several types of agitators are available; multi-pitch, standard double ribbon, paddle and trowel.

Mixer bodies are supplied with either slotted ends, removable ends, or fixed ends to meet customers requirement for agitator removal.

All mixers are custom designed to meet customer requirements. Agitator and drive calculations are performed to ensure trouble free operation for many years. High/low pressure and temperature designs are not a problem.

The agitator is the most important component of the mixer, and we offer several options:

Double Ribbon Multi-Pitch

Double Ribbon Standard



All agitator types have at least one thing in common; the outer ribbon/paddle conveys material towards the discharge and the inner ribbon/paddle conveys material away from the discharge.
