With our small mixer (type MP 50, capacity approx. 35 liters), we perform free trials at the customer’s premise. The purpose is to give the customer the opportunity to test our mixer on site and with his own products.
How does it work?
The customer provides the power connection (socket 400 V, 16 A) and the products to be mixed for each batch. Minimum amount per batch: approx 5 liters, or approx 15 liters if refining or de-lumping of the mix is required (use of high-frequency knife head), the maximum is approx. 30 liters per batch for the trial mixer.
We travel by car. The mixer is dismountable and mobile and fits in the trunk. The mixer is assembled (approx. 15 min) and then wheeled to the desired location.
After discussion of the desired sequence, the tests begin. One test involves the entire process: Filling, mixing, emptying and cleaning. It is possible to perform several tests with different products, or to repeat the trials with the same products, but by changing the process. For example, process changes can be: The activation of the high-frequency knife-head to refine the mix or for a fast distribution of small components in liquid or grease form, the optimization of the tilt angle, a shorter or longer mixing time, adjustment of the speed of the mixing screw, the use of a pneumatic vibrator, etc. Tests are documented with pictures and videos, which we send to the customer after the trials.
A test takes about one hour. However, we don’t set any time limit and perform all the tests that are desired by the customer.
