The Vrieco Nauta Cyclomix® is a revolutionary high-speed, intensive paddle mixer and agglomerator that has been specially designed for cohesive powders with liquids or melt binders. It also handles pastes, slurries and liquids with ease due to its combination of high-shear and high-impact forces.
It is a multi-purpose, high shear mixer suitable for a variety of applications and offers:
Fast mixing times (from 30 seconds to 5 minutes)
Fully self-emptying vessel
No bearings or seals in the product zone
Good control of product temperature
This mixer offers a high level of homogeneity in the end product as frequently demanded by the food, chemical, plastic, toner, mineral, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.
