E.E: What’s the news for 2021 about new products?

HANSA MIXER: Hansa Industrie Mixer has not been used to work with chemically driven foams, due to the fact that the focus has been made on high-quality machines for mechanically manufactured foams. However, the continuous mixing of solids with liquids have always been interesting for customers and therefore one part of the day-to-day business. It was a request from the block foam industry, which started the development of the PUR-Mix, specifically designed for the continuous mixing of powders or solids with polyol for block foam systems.

The magic word of the working concept is called “real-time compounding”.

It means that the PUR-Mix always mixes exactly the amount of finished compound that is actually needed. Therefore, an absolutely homogeneous, fresh compound is always available in consistently good quality. It is possible to connect the PUR-Mix directly ahead the block foam system. Immediate processing excludes inhomogeneous compound areas.

Tree different dry substances and 10 liquid medias can be mixed at the same time. The total production capacity of up to 20.000 kg per hour or more can be implemented according to customer requirements.

Thanks to the existing recipe management, a new recipe can be stored, selected and produced on the touch of a button.

Due to the very small momentary quantities and short distances, a recipe change is possible in the shortest possible time. In order to convince foam manufacturers of the advantages of real-time compounding,

Hansa Industrie Mixer has a machine available on rental basis on request to its customers.

Because of the many different configurations which can be individually adapted to requirements, you have the ability to mix various dry substances with up to 10 liquid substances in an inline process.

Precise recipes and production in line with demand are possible due to the mixing vessels with capacities of just 60 – 100 l, which has the advantage for constantly fresh batches.
