FEECO Industrial Mixers

FEECO industrial mixers are an ideal solution for processing solid and liquid feeds into a homogeneous bulk solids mixture. We offer two primary types of industrial mixer, each highly customizable and backed by our unmatched expertise in bulk solids processing:

 

Pin Mixers

Pin mixers are a medium-shear industrial mixer ideal for processing ultra-fine materials in the presence of a liquid binder.

 

Pin mixers utilize an intense spinning action to mix and densify particles into rough agglomerates. They are widely employed for processing carbon black and coal, as well as a variety of materials in the chemical industry.

Pug Mills

Also known as paddle mixers, pug mills are another type of medium-shear industrial mixer. Pug mills offer a more gentle, high-torque motion compared to pin mixers, imparting a kneading and folding action on the material to homogeneously mix liquid and solid feed materials. They can be used with a wide variety of materials and are especially adept at processing more challenging materials that require a heavy-duty solution; they have become an essential tool in processing copper concentrates, as well as steel mill by-products and digested dairy manure

Both industrial mixer types can be used as a stand-alone unit, or as the preconditioning step in a larger agglomeration/granulation setup. All FEECO mixers are designed around the unique characteristics of the material to be processed in order to produce the best processing solution.

 

Testing

The FEECO Innovation Center is a unique testing facility where we can test pin mixers and pug mills at batch and pilot scale to determine which type of industrial mixer will best suit the material, as well as work out variables in process design and scale-up.

 

Aftermarket Services

In addition to engineering and manufacturing custom industrial mixers for hundreds of applications, we can also provide an array of aftermarket services to help keep your pin mixer or pug mill running its best. This includes:

  • Annual inspections
  • Process and equipment audits
  • Routine maintenance and field services
  • Spare parts
  • Training programs
