Container mixer sets new standards in safety, productivity

| By Gerald Ondrey

The CMQ container mixer (photo) supplies a product that meets the requirements for mixing quality, dispersion, efficiency and safety. This is proven by the recently issued E.U.-type examination certificate according to ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU, meaning that the CMQ container mixer is approved for mixing bulk materials that require a design in equipment category 1/3 D (zone 20 inside, zone 22 outside). The patented CMQ container mixer can also meet the requirements of dust-explosive substances, thus making inerting obsolete. In addition to meeting high safety standards, the CMQ container mixer guarantees very high dispersion thanks to its innovative design. The airfoil mixing tool in combination with the winglets ensures good formation of the mixing stream, fast material movement and keeps mixing resistance low. This protects the products and can reduce the temperature rise to a minimum, for example by a maximum of 2°C/min for a powder-coatings premix. — Zeppelin GmbH, Garching near Munich, Germany
