The system is based on the high peripheral speed of the mixing mechanism of up to 40m/s, the resultant centrifugal force forming a concentric annular layer of product. The profile of the annular layer features a high mixing intensity, which is caused by the high differential speed between the rotating specially shaped mixing tools and the mixer wall. The product is moved through the mixing chamber in a plug-like flow, with the residence time beeing influenced by the degree of filling, the number of revolutions, the geometry and adjustment of the mixing tools as well as the mixing vessel length and the volume flow rate. The system offers the possibility to divide the mixing chamber into zones of different shear intensity, thus permitting system optimisation for varying product properties. The liquid components are directly introduced into the annular layer. This ensures a homogeneous distribution within the mixture and avoids wetting of the mixer wall and mixing shaft. For mixing operations with intensive premixing and safe remixing, the CoriMix® is combined with a continuous Ploughshare® Mixer or a mixer type TurbuMix®. The CoriMix® CM has been further developed on the basis of the practice-proven type CB.
