Slide Pegasus® Mixer at Powtech in Nürnberg


Sliding mixer maximises accessibility of ancillary equipment for cleaning, inspection and maintenance.

The ability to clean mixing equipment thoroughly and quickly is becoming more crucial now that manufacturers increasingly invest in a single process line for multiple products. Dinnissen Process Technology already offers a number of solutions for this need, such as slide-out mixing shafts, oversize inspection hatches and air-based automatic cleaning systems. With the introduction of the Slide Pegasus® Mixer, Dinnissen has succeeded in adding new and exceptionally useful functionality to the company's Pegasus® Mixer. Not only are the mixing shafts of a sliding design to allow rapid and thorough cleaning, Dinnissen's purpose-designed guide track system allows the Slide Pegasus® Mixer to be effortlessly slid out of the way as a complete unit. This feature provides optimum access to all the production equipment close to the mixer for cleaning, inspection and maintenance.

The Slide Pegasus® Mixer can be effortlessly slid out of the way on a guide track system
The twin-shaft Pegasus® Mixer has become one of Dinnissen Process Technology's true classics. In recent years, the company has manufactured mixers for customers active in the feed, food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries and continually refined the design to ensure compliance with the requirements of each individual application. For example, mixers have been developed for products varying from those that require the gentlest possible mixing method at one end of the spectrum, to products that are sticky and difficult to mix at the other extreme. Different mixer designs have been created in order to spray 10 to 18 different fluids on bulk goods, to meter with extreme precision and to mix tiny quantities or very large quantities. There has also been strong demand for the extra hygienic versions of the Pegasus® Mixer which feature slide-in mixing shafts, automatic cleaning systems and oversize inspection hatches. These options allow the inside of the mixer to be cleaned quickly and thoroughly. 

Also useful when calibrating and creating a bypass or second discharge line
The Slide Pegasus Mixer is a new product from Dinnissen. This hygienic version of the continuous Pegasus® Mixer has a capacity of 100 to 20,000 kg per hour. The Slide Pegasus® Mixer is mounted on a guide track system as standard. This allows the complete mixer to be slid to a new position with minimum effort. When cleaning, inspecting or carrying out maintenance, this arrangement allows maximum access to ancillary equipment above, below or adjacent to the mixer, such as the outfeed funnel, discharge, vibratory chute and floor under the mixer. The Slide Pegasus® Mixer has also proved its worth when calibrating the production process and engineering a bypass or second discharge line. The mixer can be simply slid into position underneath a weighing system or above an outfeed funnel. It is also possible to install a dust elimination filter below or above the mixer. The filter is easily accessible for cleaning and inspection after sliding the Slide Pegasus® Mixer out of the way. In addition, Dinnissen offers a range of ultra-hygiene options for the Slide Pegasus® Mixer, such as electrochemically polished surfaces and hermetic dust seals. Metering units that feed ingredients to the mixer can be equipped with quick-release flexible hoses. The Slide Pegasus® Mixer is part of Dinnissen's strategy of developing hygienic, easy-clean, compact and energy-efficient equipment for the solids processing industry within the framework of the company's Hygienic Compact Containment Concept.
