Mixing Equipment

A comprehensive range of mixing equipment is available, all types manufactured in mild steel or different types of stainless steel.

  • Horizontal paddle/ribbon mixer in single and double shaft design for batch mixing of granular or powderous products with or without adding of liquids. Capacities ranging from 2.000 up to 14.000 litres.
  • BRABANT Tipping mixers for batch mixing in very short cycle times, especially for every homogenous mixing with gentle mixing action without product degradation. Total emptying without residue.
  • Continuous mixing equipment.

Sorting and cleaning

Equipment for cleaning and grading of granular and powderous products:

  • Pre cleaners for removal of coarse impurities.
    Types available: rotating drumsieves up to 600 m3/hr capacity, BRABANT silo cleaner with free swinging sieves and air separation, BRABANT windsifter.
  • Cleaning and grading
    Cleaning of the products by means of accurate sieving and windsifters in several stages in order to obtain a clean end product. Accurately calibrated sieves for grading on particle thickness and indent cylinders for grading on particle length.
    Types: BRABANT V, Indent Cylinder, MULTIPLEX.
  • Very fine cleaning and grading
    Type BRABANT VII recirculating air windsifter. By means of an airflow which can be exactly regulated a very sharp cleaning or grading can be obtained. Thanks to the recirculating air, external influences are eliminated and neither cyclones nor filters are needed.
  • Specific gravity separators
    Type BRABANT SG for calibration based on very small differences in specific weight of individual particles.

Dryers

  • Drum dryers
    Rotating drum with paddles to keep the product moving in radial and axial direction through the drum. Heated air is drawn through the drum thus heating and drying the product. With this drying system the product is intensively stirred making it suitable for drying of products with very high moisture and for very coherent products (e.g. sugar beet pulp). Available in diameters from 1000 up to 2000mm and length of 5 up to 20 metres

  • Vertical grain dryers
    Vertical cascade type graindryers with direct and indirect heating/drying of the grain. Upper part is for drying, and the lowerpart is for cooling back to ambient temperature. These dryers are assembled from a number of standard modules in a great variety of sizes and capacities, adapted to specific requirements. Capacity up to 100 tons/hour with 5% moisture reduction in on single passage.
