Which Industrial Mixer Should You Choose?


Whatever you are producing on a commercial scale, you need to make sure you choose the right industrial mixer. Here are the pros and cons of all your popular options so that you can make an informed decision.

Paddle Blenders

These look like the mixer that sits on your kitchen counter. The mixing method involves beating ingredients in a bowl with a paddle until they are all blended. This familiar method is very effective when it comes to large batches of ingredients. There are also fewer parts that you need to clean regularly. However, they can be difficult to load and unload.


fluidizer is a popular and very versatile option when you are trying to blend liquids and solids. They produce consistent mixtures because of their method, although they don’t use any paddle to mix ingredients which means a mechanic will need to fix them if they break.

Ribbon Mixers

While you can’t use ribbon mixers to make a fluidized bed gasifier, they are prevalent for coating solids with powders because they save on ingredients. They can range in size from small machines to massive industrial blenders so that they can fit almost any batch size. Additionally, they can mix ingredients in a matter of seconds.

Choose the size based on your intended batch size because larger machines don’t mix small batches thoroughly, and smaller blenders can easily be overloaded. Often, that means going with multiple smaller mixers, which can be costly.

There are plenty of mixers to choose from. The key to getting the most out of your purchase is to choose the right one for your application. Start by thinking about what you will be mixing and which machine can handle that. Then, compare and contrast the pros and cons of each style. This will help you choose the right one for your business.
