Plow blender's design incorporates a cylindrical mixing chamber and high intensity plows to create a fluidized mixing zone. It handles materials that are extremely fibrous, interlocking, dense, abrasive or moist/oily. The cylindrical unit blends at higher speeds, with higher intensity. It consists of a cylindrical vessel and a horizontally-oriented mixing shaft that fills the entire mixing vessel with fluidized material, maximizing transfer rates while minimizing impact and degradation. This blender can be configured with: single or multiple charging ports located on the top of the vessel; contoured access doors on the side; double lip, lantern ring or gas/liquid shaft seals; and a paddle gate, knife gate, plug gate or universal flange at the discharge.
