    Continuous mixer

Mixing homogeneity and hygienic design characterize the continuous mixers GCM made by Gericke. The GCM 800 ECB and 1200 ECB are equipped with a cantilevered shaft and a shaft seal which can be dismantled completely in a very simple way. In the hygienic version, the parts in contact with the product are polished. The design allows the user to extract the drive and the mixer housing for easy access. The mixer offers a mixing position and two cleaning positions

The continuous mixer has no cavities where residue could build up. Experiences made with the mixers during the operation have led to an improvement in accessibility to all components and the cleanability of the mixer. The GCM mixer is suitable for the operation in ATEX zones. Optionally the mixer can be delivered with heating/cooling jacket, different weir plates for the adjustment of the residence time and a pneumatic batch process unit.

Continuous mixing processes help to make to process flow more efficient. The energy consumption per output is low, the physical manipulation of the bulk material is minimal and therefore the risk for segregation can be eliminated. For the accurate feeding of the ingredients into the continuous mixers, the company proposes its approved and adapted range of volumetric and gravimetric feeders.
