Marion Mixers’ horizontal batch mixer features adjustable paddle blades and mixes and disperses in one operation, increasing production volume. The combination of an optional chopper motor and the paddle blades produce an effective mix. The mixer features a T304 stainless steel trough with internal product contact surfaces polished to #120 and internal fillet welds ground to a minimum #80-grit finish for easy clean-out. The paddle agitator consists of T304 SS welded arms and welded paddles with a blade clearance set at .030-in. from the bottom centerline of the trough. The main-shaft seal is an easy-clean, adjustable, split stuffing box seal with air-purge provision designed to prevent shaft run-out in the seal area. The powertrain consists of a 20-hp motor with a Dodge shaft mounted reducer.
