Paddle mixers are exceptionally suitable for mixing foods, such as vegetables, cheese, meat, confectionary and many more other products.
Our paddle mixers:
- A minimum of product residue and cross-mixing of batches
- Flexible programmable mixing for excellent consistency over a range of products
- Easy operation, handling and sanitation for low cost of ownership
Our twin-shaft mixers are designed for extended products such as hamburger patties, meatballs, luncheon meat and ground sausages, and for pre-mixing for wiener and frankfurter emulsions. The paddle mixers are all made of stainless steel. The mixing barrel and the paddle wings are high-precision manufactured, with minimum clearance between barrel and paddles ensuring an optimal unloading and minimal product crossover.
The mixing wings are independently direct driven providing various mixing actions for optimal mixing and protein extraction. The variable wing-speed is standard which gives a lot of flexibility to the machine.
The twin shaft paddle mixers are designed according to the latest sanitary design standards and possibility to add cleaning nozzles for easy cleaning. The shaft seals can easily be opened/removed for cleaning.
The effective mixing action with high peripheral wing speed gives good protein extraction, uniform distribution of spices, additives and liquids, and provides effective salt activation.
Working principle from the UniMix
The GEA UniMix is PLC controlled and has a colour touch-screen for a complete user-friendly operation. Up to 999 mixing programs can be stored, each with up to 20 individual programmable steps which provide full flexibility.
Both mixing wings are independently driven by two motors and a single-speed drive with soft starter is standard. Programmable variable speed is optional. The minimal clearances between mixing wings and hull ensure that powders and other additives are thoroughly mixed in.
Frame, body and mixing wings are made from stainless steel. All corners of the hopper and cabinet are curved and surfaces are fine ground and bead-peened to facilitate thorough cleaning. The leak-proof shaft seals are easily removed for daily cleaning.
Equipped with two large outlet gates, the GEA UniMix has a very short discharge time and leaves minimal product residue between batches. Multiple applications within recipe mix are available for red meat, poultry, fish and vegetable products. Wing options include ribbon types for liquid mixing applications, and paddle with round bars for tumbling and massaging.
