New Software for faster and more energy efficient Mixing

A key component of Dinnissen Process Technology’s mixers and mixing solutions is the Smart Mixing software tool developed in-house for automatically managing the complete mixing process. The newest software version 8.0 allows for mixing processes to proceed faster and consume less energy.

According to Dinnissen, with the newest Smart Mixing software tool ingredients can now be mixed more quickly, homogeneously, and gently with less energy.

While ingredients are being added to the mixer, the software removes air and creates a partial vacuum. This allows ingredients to be added to the mixer much more quickly and also prevents problems in relation to pressure build up and the emission of fine particles. The improved software tool also distributes the ingredients even more evenly inside the mixer so that carrier substances and micro ingredients are distributed more evenly over the contents of the mixer, thereby increasing the speed of the entire process. The software also optimises the tip speed of paddle mixers to <1m/s in order to further minimize the risk of sparking and ignition when working with ingredients that present an explosion hazard. Finally, it measures the upward acceleration of the particles being mixed and automatically calculates and regulates the optimum rotation speed of the mixing mechanism in order to arrive at the ‘magical’ Froude number = 1. When optimised in this manner, heavier particles do not sink to the bottom during the mixing process. The end result of this newest Smart Mixing software tool is that ingredients can now be mixed more quickly, homogeneously, and gently while at the same time consuming less energy.
