Mixing is not only a part of many industrial process steps, but is also to be found in numerous everyday areas, such as the kitchen (mixers), the car (carburetor) or the building trade (concrete mixers).
In cosmetic and pharmaceutical process technology, a distinction is primarily made between liquid or highly viscous products when mixing, as well as whether the phases to be mixed easily mix or even repel. Depending on the basic parameters, the mixing process has to be adapted to these and can vary from relatively simple to highly complex.
Mixing processes are applied (as a sub-area) in virtually all cosmetic, pharmaceutical and chemical production processes, for example in
The economic efficiency of a mixing process depends on the energy expended for the mixing process. The mixing process may take place in a batch or in a continuous process. Agitation, a sub-area of mixing, typifies this, as it is possible to adapt the energy input over a wide range of applications to the end product and thus to produce a large number of products. In order to produce a mixture from substances which do not spontaneously form a homogeneous mixture, it is crucial that the mixer generates as much relative motion as possible. Ideally, the intensity and direction of the force input tend to change continuously throughout the process. The variety of production machine designs is owed to the multitude of different applications. Depending on the process, the procedure of the mixing processes can vary considerably. Thus, a coordinated interpretation of the process is a guarantee for optimum production results. We will be pleased to advise you on the subject of mixing.
