Flexibility of process:

The new mixer line offers you the possibility to adjust the mixing energy to a level which is most optimal for your process without compromising to the end result. Frequency controlled drive units, an “intensifier” high speed rotor and a range of mixing screws enables you to adjust the mixing process to your demands.
