Mixed flow dryers are column dryers that have air flow in both counter and concurrent directions. These dryers often have multiple zones and can use higher air temperatures without crop damage. The dryers are usually self cleaning and have high energy efficiencies.
Mixed-flow impeller is an impeller for a pump or compressor, which combines radial- and axial-flow principles. They are used for medium discharges and medium heads. This impeller imparts energy partially by centrifugal force and partially by axial force, since the vanes act partially as an axial compressor. Mixed flow impeller pumps are suitable for pumping untreated wastewater and storm water. They operate at higher speeds and are usually of lighter construction. They also deliver greater airflow than centrifugal fans, and more pressure than axial fans. The impellers are designed using the latest computer aided technology, and the MF blade angle adjustment feature provides a wide range of performance options that are exceptionally quiet and efficient.
Mixer Blender is a single shaft mixer used to blend ingredients requiring moderate shear. This is accomplished using a high vane blade rotating at 3000 to 3500 feet per minute peripheral speed. The blade imparts some shear forces to the ingredients, but also blends due to the pumping action of the high vane design. It is most often used for let down or thin down of pre-dispersed products into liquids.
