Discharge Systems are ideal for removing viscous products from the Removable Mixing Vessels of Planetary Mixers and Multi-Shaft Mixers.
Discharge Systems consist of a platen mounted to a hydraulic ram that is mounted to a structural steel frame. The platen closely fits the inner diameter of the mixing vessel, and, with the help of a special O-ring seal, forces the product through the discharge valve in the bottom of the mixing vessel.
The principal benefit of using the Discharge System is a very high product yield (>98%), and a major side benefit is that the walls of the mixing vessel are cleaned by the passage of the O-ring.
Discharge Systems are available in Floor Mounted versions and Elevator Versions that lift the mixing vessel high enough to discharge the product into drums or other intermediate vessels. These systems are available to service mixing vessels from laboratory sizes to 500 gallons.
