The Gardner HE Series of U-trough ribbon mixers (photo) has mixing troughs with unconventional short aspect ratios (length to diameter). Short mixing times combined with low-energy, gentle action and high efficiency ensure that minor ingredients are dispersed homogeneously without the need for pre-mixing, says the manufacturer. The mixer is equipped with a high-efficiency “double helix” agitator that has only six mixing blades. The Gardner HE Series has capacities ranging from 50 to 20,000 L. The mixer also features a large top cover for ease of access and is suitable for handling sticky powders. — Kemutec Group Inc., Bristol, Pa.
