New mixing systems offer huge energy-saving potential

MTI Mischtechnik at K 2010

Detmold, Germany, October 2010 - With its MTI Eco®-line heating-/cooling mixer combination and the radically new Cool tec cooling mixer, MTI Mischtechnik puts the focus of its K 2010 trade show presentation on two forward-looking machine series. Both systems are designed for minimized energy consumption. As a result, they provide a high cost-efficiency in the production of dry blends and WPC compounds as well as in other heating and cooling processes – without compromising on product quality. By combining this equipment with an automatic raw material feeding system, a very efficient heating-/cooling mixer combination with high specific throughput rates can be achieved.

The particularly cost-efficient and innovative heating-/cooling mixer combinations from the MTI Eco®-line series of MTI Mischtechnik are designed for batch sizes from 60 kg up to 1,000 kg and throughputs of up to 7,500 kg/h. Typical uses include compounding of PVC-U for volume-market products such as pipes or profiles, PVC-P for highly filled recipes, and other applications without frequent product changes. MTI Eco®-line mixers offer a particularly advantageous combination of high throughput, low energy consumption and attractive pricing, due to careful match of mixer sizes and required mixing power, the use of highly efficient electric drives and optimized usage of cooling water. Therefore, a changeover from externally sourced dry blends to in-house compounding may pay off after a very short time.

As its most recent development, MTI Mischtechnik is presenting the Cool tec system – an innovative cooling mixer design for all cooling applications in polymer processing which defines new benchmarks of throughput and energy efficiency. At its core is an all-new cooling technology developed in cooperation with Reisner AG, one of the leading manufacturers of cooling and refrigerating equipment. Offering 30% higher cooling capacity than the existing MTI standard, the Cool tec mixer offers a huge energy-saving potential (up to 25%) and hence, substantial mixing cost savings to the customer. At K 2010, MTI will exhibit the prototype of its Cool tec series at its stand B22 in hall 09. After the fair the Cool tec mixer will be returned to the company's own R&D test centre for mixing trials on customers’ request and further testing.

MTI Mischtechnik International GmbH, established in 1975, is an internationally operating manufacturer of mixing and processing equipment for the plastic processing and chemical industry. With a staff of around 70 working at its headquarters site in Detmold/Germany, this family-owned company manufactures around 70 mixer systems of different types each year. MTI Mischtechnik also operates a U.S. branch in Salina/Kansas, and is represented by a license partner at Tokyo in Japan.
