Integrated controls manage the agitator, chopper, and pneumatic butterfly discharge to create the optimal solution for coloring plastic pellets.
Marion’s paddle agitator is designed for gentle mixing of solids of dissimilar size, shape, density, and viscosity. Materials travel in a 3D figure-eight pattern, constantly pulling from the end of the mixer to the middle for consistent mixing of product. Our paddle agitators can work effectively down to 20% of rated capacity, and are available welded, bolted, or a combination of both depending on the application.
At Marion, we offer innovative and durable SealGuard™ air supply manifold technology to prevent costly seal damage. Acting as an insurance policy that ensures air pressure is on and flowing to the seals prior to mixing, it is a simple yet effective component of preventive maintenance that will ensure your industrial mixer is performing optimally.
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:
Custom is what we do, and our covers are no exception. Doors, inlets, dust collection vents, threaded temperature probes and pressure relief ports are just a few of the endless ways our covers can be configured to meet your needs. It all starts with safety and ergonomics. Hinged doors that provide full-width access can be counter balanced and/or counter weighted, as well as cylinder actuated for easy opening. The doors and safety grates located underneath are guarded by electrical interlock switches to prevent unsafe use.
A superior product may be achieved by installing a chopper that provides the ability to blend and disperse in one operation. Mounted through the sides of the mixer trough, the agitator continually brings material into the chopper zone while mixing. Various styles of cutting edges on the intensive 3600 rpm chopper blades rip apart and circulate lumps and agglomerates, break up liquid-rich shot balls, open matted fibrous materials, and distribute pigments. Sample chopper applications include:
Accurate batch sizes are a snap when utilizing integral load cells.
