Batch mixers are industrial mixers that work with a single load of material at a time before being refilled with one load after another. Industrial mixers typically have two modes: batch and continuous-feed. Batch mixing is the more common of the two kinds.
The mixing of batch mixers begins after a substance is poured into the industrial mixer. Once mixing is complete, the substance is poured out of the mixer for further processing and the mixer is then cleaned before being refilled. Batch mixers are capable of mixing a wide range of products from fine powders to heavy, dense, materials like cement. There is no single mixer that is automatically a batch mixer; practically speaking, almost any mixer can work in batches. Continuous-feed mixers are usually placed in a production line that carries materials and products through an automated system. Batch mixers may also be part of a production line; however, the line would be required to pause and come to a standstill as the mixer completes one batch at a time. There are countless substances batch mixers are used for including beverage, medicine, toothpaste, glue and petroleum product industrial mixers. Batch mixers are also readily used for cementing services, as they consistently provide cement slurries of consistent densities. Batch mixers are common in the food processing, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and toiletry, chemical, agricultural, pulp and paper, automotive and adhesive and sealant industries.
