Energy efficient powder mixing

The Alfa Laval Hybrid Powder Mixer
The Alfa Laval Hybrid Powder Mixer

Boost your productivity and energy savings
Increased productivity and energy savings are both important targets in most industries. Together with our partners throughout the world, Alfa Laval is committed to help you reach these targets and beyond.

High rate of dynamic shear mixing
Mixing and pumping both wet and dry ingredients into a homogenous blend can - depending on viscosity - require up to four separate electric motors, consuming a lot of energy. The Alfa Laval Hybrid Powder Mixer can accomplish the same using only a single motor drive, including efficient mixing in the associated production vessel, when used in combination with the Alfa Laval Rotary Jet Mixer.

The Hybrid Powder Mixer combines pump and powder dissolving technologies in a single versatile unit. It is the only hygienic powder mixer capable of drawing powder into the unit while simultaneously pumping the resulting process liquid at pressures up to 4 bar, making the need for a separate discharge pump obsolete. It effectively pre-blends the powder and liquid before the mixture enters the high-shear stage, which contributes to faster and more effective dissolution.

While other inline powder mixers create mechanical shear in a small area, the Hybrid Powder Mixer creates high dynamic shear in several different steps, which require less energy to ensure complete dissolution of the powder. The Hybrid Powder Mixer can also be used as part of an efficient Cleaning-in-Place (CIP) system.

You benefit by reducing:

  • Installation costs: A unit with only one electric motor for powder mixing, pumping and CIP.
  • Operating costs: Low power consumption, providing up to 50% energy savings.
  • Maintenance costs: Service is simplified due to fewer components.
  • Processing time: Fast and homogenous powder mixing at high dry matter concentration.
