Mixture of liquids and fibrous solidsIndustrial stirrers allow the mixing of liquids and fibrous solids. This complex mixture requires the introduction of liquids to homogenize the solution and avoid the entanglement of fibres around the mobile.
This process is made particularly difficult due to the instability of the mixtures produced. The system used to make the liquid/fibrous solid mixtures must be of the highest performance.
MARLLIN, manufacturer of agitators (stirrers), turbines, propellers and anchors, is at the cutting edge of technology thanks to its Ax4 propeller which combines performance and efficiency.
The propeller type AX4 is a perfectly adapted solution for the mixing of fibrous liquids. The shape of the propeller is designed to project the fibres centrifugally and limit the formation of heaps.
A mixer mounted at the bottom of the tank with the Ax4 propeller and equipment of perfect reliability allows a high shearing effect at maximum speed and favours the complex mixing of fibrous liquids and solids without risk of entanglement around the mobile agitator.
What are the applications for mixing a fibrous liquid and solid in the food industry?
In the food processing sector, bread making is a good example of mixing a fibrous liquid and solid requiring specific equipment.
Indeed, the transformation of bread components requires the mixing of flour with water, salt, fat and yeast. A foam is created when water and yeast are brought together. Their mixing is necessary so that no solid residue remains. Each component has to be mixed in a specific way so that their mixture is homogeneous. The final volume of the mixture is related to the initial weight of the components, their respective proportions and the time of operation of this complex mixture. The aeration of the paste and its homogenization will be influenced by the mixing process.
