09.04.2018 Multi-functional processing for hygienic applications

Maschinenfabrik Gustav Eirich, Hardheim, Germany, has introduced the CleanLine series of multi-functional processing machines which are capable of delivering multiple process operations from a single-pot unit. Newly developed to meet stringent hygienic requirements, they have been designed to comply with the highest quality standards and deliver best product results. CleanLine machines can be employed for either mixing, coating, dispersing, emulsifying, granulating, kneading, dissolving, agglomerating or suspending. All these actions can be performed by just a single machine.
The machines have a rotating container of the type familiar from other units. This container feeds the material that is to be processed to a mixing tool. The unique feature is the fact that the tool can run at any speed up to 30m/s – with or against the direction of rotation of the container. As a result, the power input into the mix can be carefully adapted to the relevant process and to its specific requirements.
This is the reason why these machines can mix, granulate, coat, knead and disperse, with processing times of a matter of minutes. This opens up countless potential applications, e.g. granulates of the highest quality with maximum control over the granulate properties, dry and wet dispersion with maximum de-agglomeration or the processing of high to low-viscosity kneading compounds with selective energy input and reproducible quality parameters.
The advantages of this technology have been used in many industries for decades. The multi-functional mixers are successfully in operation all around the world in a range of different industries. The process know-how that has been assimilated is now made available to users in areas of hygienic applications for the first time. Processes that previously required several units in series can now be performed in a single machine.
The CleanLine series – which will be launched at ACHEMA in Hall 5, Stand B86 – has been designed with a focus on ease of cleaning and short setup times. Where necessary, heating or cooling can also be provided during processing.
