Z Blade Mixer｜Shearing and mixing
The sigma mixer extruder works best in the mixing of adhesives, explosives, putties, sealants, cake dough, glass fiber resin dough, metal powder, silicone rubber, butyl rubber, food and confectionery products, molds, soaps and detergents, charcoal paste, gaskets, pencil gum gel, cherries, sugar pastes, chemicals, hot melts, plastics, viscous rubber solutions, chewing gums, inks and pigments, putties, crayons and pencils, magic bread, refractories and many more.
Kneading and mixing of materials with high viscosity work best with a sigma mixer extruder. A jacket arrangement is placed between the sigma blade and the mixing tank to enhance the heating and cooling.
Advantages of Z Blade Mixer：
- low grinding fineness
- Wide range of applications
- high working efficiency

Guidelines For Kneader
Can you use the kneader mixer for different applications? Do you have a clear idea about how the kneading mixer works? There is more demand for disperser and mixer mixers to save the cost of the raw materials. The customers can try to preserve the human cost if they can find the suitable kneader of their choice. The best customer services are offered to the users, so there is no need to compromise on the quality of the twin-screw kneader. It is possible to find a safe working design if you are interested in opting for the best kneader mixer.
The FRANLI z blade mixer is a mixer used for evenly mixing semi-solid materials. The mixer contained a U trough bowl with two Z shape blades that rotate in opposite directions for accurate blending of particles. Moreover, the blade mixer has an ideal capacity motor and gearbox designed according to the features of the products and process. Z blade mixer is a form of kneader blade used in most of the mixing processes.
Why given the word Z blade?
This is because of the kneading mixing shaft which is in a “Z” shape whereby both ends of the mixing shaft are on a conical head. The conical head of the Z-blade mixer on one side of the mixing shaft is connected to the motor outside the mixing tank by a rotating shaft, and the conical head on the other side of the mixing shaft is attached to the inner wall of the tank through the rotating shaft. This kneading is more effective at mixing viscous materials and is equipped with conical heads at both ends of the mixing shaft, reducing the gap between the outer tip of the conical shaft and the mixing tank. The Z mixer has a simple structure, which enhances high mixing efficiency.
How does the Z blade mixer function?
The Z blades rotate at different speeds parallel to each other, making the materials move from one end of the mixing shaft to the other end. The tearing and shearing action of the particles against the rotating blades and the side walls causes the disintegration of particles into smaller sizes. Discharging processed particles is attained by shaking the container or through the valves at the bottom of employing an extrusion screw beside the container.
In a tangential design, the blade rotates tangentially within the channel. Front blades spin faster than the back blades, usually in a 3: 2 ratio. Tangent blades work best in high viscosity materials such as adhesives, rubber compounds, dyes, and pigments.
The sigma kneader is the perfect mixer for high viscosity fabrics, sticky and sandy slurry.
The hydraulic lid opening system in the z-arm mixer empties the hydraulic trough by tilting the hydraulic bowl directly into the container.
The laboratory z-blade mixer works better in laboratories or research facilities for product development, testing, and quality control. It is one of the smaller types of z-blade mixers. It is estimated to have a working capacity of 455 liters.
What are the advantages of a laboratory z blade mixer?
It is very flexible. Due to its availability in two sizes: 3-litre and 4-liter working capacities, with variable speed drive. Optional extras include vacuum construction, heating/cooling jacket, energy meter, temperature reading, and single-phase power supply.
It is easy to clean. It is easy to clean mixing troughs and rotating blades without using other tools.
Safety fully locked for safe use. Operating this blade mixer is very safe.
The laboratory z blade mixers are used to prepare Chorleywood bread, pastries, puff pastry, cream fillings, cake mixes, thick dough, fondant, marzipan, frosting, licorice, caramel, and more, Adhesives, bitumen, ceramics, clay, carbonaceous materials, dyes, explosives, toothbrushes, adhesives, gums, graphite, DMC, carbon pencils, putties, resins, soaps, rubber compounds, pharmaceuticals, and many others.
How does the kneader extruder work?
The kneader extruder consists of a set of counter-rotating kneading blades and loose screws. During the mixing cycle, the blades spin parallel to each other, and the blending screw spins in opposite directions, constantly introducing new material into the mixing blade. When the mixing / kneading cycle is complete, the screw is flipped over, and the mixed material is removed from the mixing zone through the discharge nozzle for further processing or packaging.
Advantages of z blade mixers
· It ensures complete mixing of materials.
The sigma kneader consists of two blades that extend the entire length of the mixer. One arm is above the other. When turned on, the upper arm rotates much slower than the lower arm. These actions ensure that the ingredients are not left unmixed. Due to the different blade speeds and rotation patterns, all materials placed in the mixer are removed and mixed
· Can process different types of materials
Another advantage of the sigma mixer extruder is that it can process a wide variety of materials. The z mixer is designed to handle liquids, semi-liquids, solids, or lumps and wells. Sigma blades are not suitable for solids, but they can work in a pinch. But other than that, the mixer works well with all types of materials.
· Can process different loads of material
The ultimate advantage of the sigma mixer extruder is that it can handle large amounts of material. Many mixers are equipped to handle specific loads such as 100 liters of liquid or ten cubic meters of additional material. If you add too little to the mixer, you may not be able to mix well.
The sigma blade mixer is a device for blending, kneading, vulcanizing, and polymerizing highly viscous materials. It is used in various fields such as manufacturing silicone rubber, sealants, rubber food bases, pharmaceuticals, chewing gum, etc.
