What are butterfly mixers?
A butterfly mixer, also known as a butterfly agitator or butterfly blade mixer, is a type of industrial mixer that features a unique mixing blade design resembling the shape of a butterfly. It is commonly used in various industries, including food processing, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and cosmetics.
The butterfly mixer typically consists of two symmetrical blades attached to a central shaft. The blades have a curved shape, resembling the wings of a butterfly, and are positioned in such a way that they create a swirling motion within the mixing vessel. This design promotes efficient mixing and blending of ingredients by creating fluid flow patterns and promoting fluid circulation.
What are the advantages of industrial butterfly mixers?
Butterfly mixers are particularly effective for mixing low to medium viscosity liquids, suspensions, and pastes. They are often used for blending ingredients, dispersing additives, and achieving uniformity in the mixture. The gentle yet thorough mixing action of the butterfly mixer helps prevent product degradation and maintains the integrity of sensitive materials.
The size, speed, and configuration of the blades can vary depending on the specific application and the desired mixing effect. Butterfly mixers can be found in different sizes, from laboratory-scale to large industrial-scale mixers, and they can be operated in batch or continuous modes.
