Throughout these eight decades, we’ve had the privilege to serve brand leaders who expect us to be exceptional. As an industry leader, we at Marion leverage our design and manufacturing prowess to accelerate competitive advantage for our customers. Deep partnerships with our customers have created a natural momentum that is palpable and has resulted in success through excellence for everyone involved.
Introducing the Marion Momentum Series, engineered with the craftsmanship you expect…because momentum only happens when we move forward together.
Marion’s Momentum Series of equipment allows you to enjoy Marion quality and service for more of your mixing needs. Classic designs such as the V Cone Blender and Double-Cone Blender provide you options for replacing old equipment without any changes in your production line. The Fluidizing Paddle Mixer dramatically reduces your mix times while maintaining low operational costs. Finally, the Lump Breaker makes sure everything goes smoothly by reducing particle size and breaking up agglomerated or oversized materials. Marion quality means your production line will easily pass compliance requirements for consumables and medical applications. Welded joints and paddles, customized details and food-grade materials make the difference between a Marion and the competition. Put simply: Marion gives you peace of mind. Let’s move forward together.

For fast and gentle mixing, Marion’s Fluidizing Paddle Mixer uses large paddles with two-directional sweeping motions to create a fluidizing bed. Minimizing direct contact with the paddles, material is swept by the moving air pushed outwards and inwards in fluid mixing movements. The result is a mixer perfectly designed for delicate materials.
With food-grade finishes, Marion’s superior craftmanship is what makes this Fluidizing Paddle Mixer stand out from the competition. The patented conical shape means that, compared to the competition, you’ll get easier and more complete material discharge, as well as better drainage for cleaning of the mixer, with nowhere for residue to hide.
As with all of our mixers, you can add precise customizations that fit your application, because we manufacture all of our machines here in Marion, Iowa. Our laboratories and tooling facilities mean that you get the exact mixer you need for your application--every time.
The V Cone Blender expands Marion’s product line to provide a classic design for nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals and other free-flowing materials with uniform particle size. For producers who want to benefit from Marion’s superior quality and customized solutions, but who don’t want to make changes to the production line, the V Cone can be the perfect fit. The V Cone design provides easy discharge and cleaning. The mixer rotates on its axis, with material gently converging and dividing for an even, consistent blend. The tumbling action is also gentler for delicate materials.
Marion’s Double-Cone Blender provides a great fit for coffee, teas, pharmaceuticals, glass and ceramic mixing. Tumble blending offers a low-impact motion, which is particularly good for abrasive solids and gentle mixes. Adding flavoring or trace supplements is a specialty for the Double-Cone Blender. Optional load cells and automated controls for measuring ingredients ensure consistent blends for every batch. As with all of our machines, best-in-class materials and high-quality tooling make the Marion mixers stand out from the competition.

Some mixes start with fine particles, but others contain ingredients that are clumped or too large for the desired mix textures. The Lump Breaker mechanically breaks agglomerates and clumps and grinds solids to a maximum size for further processing.
Marion’s Lump Breaker uses a rotating beater assembly which grates materials through a perforated screen, eliminating oversized particles. The output of the Lump Breaker may come before or after a mixing process, or be used as a stage before fine milling. The Lump Breaker adheres to Marion’s strict safety and sanitary standards and can be used for food, fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals and other applications.
When breaking down particles, the Lump Breaker provides a consistent output, with a narrow particle size distribution and minimal generation of fine particles. The machine operates in a continuous fashion for high throughput. A variety of customizations are available for different applications and industries.
