Twin Shell Machines
Used Twin Shell Equipment
Twin shell powder mixers or twin shell blenders are designed to mix solids to solids, or solids to liquids. Twin shell blenders have two connected blending shells that are connected to form a V-shape. The V-shape of a twin shell blender results in more efficient blending. As the twin shell blender rotates and the V-shape is upside down, the product is divided into to equal or unequal volumes (depending on the design of the twin shell blender). As the twin shell blender rotates so that the V-shape is right side up, the product in both ends of the V accelerate towards the point of the V resulting in the impact of the two masses of product and increased product mixing due to the addition forces of the impact. V-shaped twin shell blenders can be outfitted with a rotating intensifier bar or liquids / solids bar. Intensifier bars are designed to break up clumps of solids while the product is separated in the two ends of the V (when the twin shell blender is upside down).
