Gericke paddle batch mixer type GBM.

Batch mixer GBM

The GBM single-shaft mixer has been designed on the basis of more than 120 years of experience in building mixers. The modular design ensures the best possible adaptation to the requirements of the process.

The GBM series offers impressive processing, flexibility and reliability. 

Process flexibility by interchangeable mixing tools

Bolt-on mixing paddles are used in the standard version. Optionally, the GBM mixer can also be equipped with ploughshares or a spiral strip. The paddles can also be exchanged subsequently.

The Gericke Batch Mixer principle of operation.

Paddle batch mixer principle of operation

The rotating paddles divide and blend sequentially the mass of product and generate a quick and intense movement of each particle through the mixing chamber (convection). 
Due to the defined angle of the paddles, the mixer shows an excellent axial and radial dispersion. 
Using choppers, additional energy is applied to the product to break up lumps and ensure the dispersion of any agglomerates or liquids. They are also used for granulation processes as well.

Optimum configuration of the mixer housing and paddle shape as well as the favourable positioning of the infeed ducts for micro-components mean the mixing process is three to four times shorter than in comparable devices.

For emptying, the product is transported to the outlet valve for a quick and complete discharge of the mixer.

Advantages of the Gericke Batch Mixer.

Vorteile des Gericke Batchmischers GBM

High mixing quality

Eight mixing tools have optimised shape and geometry, and lead to a powerful flow through the mixing chamber.

Greater throughput thanks to a short mixing time

Optimum configuration of the mixer housing and paddle shape as well as the favourable positioning of the infeed ducts for micro-components mean the mixing process is three to four times shorter than in comparable devices. 

Flexible process configuration

A reproducible mixing quality can be guaranteed efficiently and without deterioration of the mixed materials through the combination of matching drive packages and the particular mixing chamber geometry. 

Energy efficiency

A required mixing volume can be mixed without deterioration, although requiring less energy. As a result, the GBM helps to save energy. 

Quality and performance

The GBM series offers impressive processing and reliability. Attention has also been paid to ensuring that the control elements are comfortable for operators to use. The mixer concept has been completely redesigned, and impresses as a package with a top price/performance ratio that is unmatched by any other machine.
