Staying competitive in today’s world requires intelligence in and on all fronts. That’s why Marion Process Solutions has invested in an expert team of talent to create intelligent solutions through smart controls. iNCONTROL™ is much more than a control system capability. It’s a toolbox of resources and knowledge that will take your machine to the next level of performance. Your smart resource from day one.  At a minimum, all control packages include:

  • An enclosure with a NEMA or IEC rating depending on the application
  • A lockable service disconnect suitable for lock-out/tag-out devices
  • Fuse or circuit breaker protection
  • E-stop and safety limit switch circuitry where applicable

Hybrid Agitator


Hybrid agitators combine the tumbling action of paddle agitators with the rolling pattern of ribbon mixers to create a double-reversing effect. This is ideal for materials that tend to mound in the center of the mixer, increasing energy transferred to ingredients and creating a more even mixing and product levels inside the trough during the mixing process. Marion’s hybrid agitators can be customized with paddle mixers or ribbon agitators on the inside or outside, depending on the application.

Rinse-In-Place and Clean-In-Place


Clean-In-Place (CIP) systems are designed and installed to ensure efficient, automatic cleaning for each of our customer’s unique application and facility needs. Effective cleaning means minimizing cycle time, lowering chemical usage and reducing water and utility costs. Additional benefits include:

  • Improved hygiene
  • Enhanced product quality
  • A safer, more consistent sanitation plan
  • Reduced time spent on manual cleaning

Marion Process Solutions believes that CIP should be a holistic approach. It begins with the foundational element of simplicity in design, and is coupled with the correct selection and layout of appropriate cleaning devices to achieve optimal results.
