Designed for "on-line" continuous shearing and mixing action. Texturizes to give a smooth body and texture to such products as ricotta cheese and food pastes. Emulsifies to make stable emulsions of products with both oil and water base ingredients; blends to provide continuous, on-line blending without air incorporation or lumps of dry product; reconstitutes to assist reconstitution of powdered products such as milk powders; suspends/disperses to give stable solids in liquid suspension; polishes to improve the appearance of products by providing a smoother and more uniform surface texture.
These mixers are extremely compact and simple in operation, making them ideal for either continuous or batch processes that require recirculation. Pre- and post-blending are unnecessary in most operations; often eliminating lumping, flooding, or foaming.
Shearing/mixing forces produce controlled, highly sheared, uniform dispersions and stable emulsions. A wide range of product viscosity may be processed, limited only by the maximum 150 psig (10 bar) inlet pressure. Higher viscosity products are processed at lower flow rates to stay within the pressure limit.
The patented Votator 4 x 120 is designed to deliver efficient performance for lower initial investment, as well as lower maintenance cost. The Votator 4 x 120 is a unique concentric scraped surface heat exchanger designed for heating and cooling moderately viscous products.
With Votator units, companies in the food, chemical, petroleum, pharmaceutical, and allied industries have reduced labor costs substantially, because their reliance on expensive artisan skills have been minimized or eliminated. Votator Scraped Surface Heat exchangers continue to replace many slow, inefficient batching operations with more uniform, controllable, and repeatable continuous processing. And, because of superior heat transfer performance and ability to handle a wide range of viscosities, they are still the clear choices over tubular or massive plate heat exchangers in viscous applications.
One-Piece Mechanical Seal
Hard Faces offer more durability for longer lifeFewer parts allow for easier maintenance
100% PEEK™ - no filler or insert - provides longer life and no stress separationCan be used on any heat transfer tube, with any product at most process temperaturesFDA compliant
