High Speed Choppers

THE NEED FOR SPEED

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:

  • Mixing agglomerated pigments into plastic powder by dispersing the pigment and developing the color 
  • Mixing resin into compacted asbestos, synthetic fiber, or fiberglass by allowing the resin uniformly penetrate and coat the fiber matrix 
  • Blending blocks of solid shortening (or liquid shortening) into bakery mixes 
  • PVC resins, oily plasticizers, fillers and pigments 
  • Blending dry pharmaceutical preparations with thick liquid binders to break up liquid-rich lumps and coat particles to produce a homogenous, compactable mix
  • Dispersing colored pigments into grout/cement mixes
