Mixing Kneader type MK 5, standard steel version
The mixing kneader with screw discharge is a combination of a preparing and a homogenizing machine which is a cross between the well-known Z-arm kneader and an extruder. This particular combination secures the advantages of intermittent (thus very exact) mixing and kneading of the clay body with those of extrusion as a shaping method. The machine can handle all kinds of different material, from crude or ground clay to filter cake and prepared body, granulates or powder.
This unit prepares crude clay and ground clay batchwise and is simply set in the continuous mode for homogenizing filter cake. The shape of the emerging column depends on the type of die which is used.
|Technical data MK 5||Value|
|Mixer content (plastic body) approx.||50 kg|
|Case length approx.||500 mm|
|Case height approx.||400 mm|
|Case width approx.||400 mm|
|Worm diameter||150 mm|
|Motor power mixer||3kW|
|Motor power worm||2,2 kW|
Option: Infinitely variable speed control of the worm by means of a frequency convertor installed in the switch cabinet.
Mixing kneader type MK 5 with vacuum attachment type VV1 or VV2
This combination of machines unites the advantages of a mixing kneader with those of a de-airing pug mill. The mixing kneader intensively kneads, mixes and homogenizes the material to be processed.
The vacuum attachment de-airates the body and produces a column the shape of which depends on the die in use.
Such units can be used for processing crude clay, ground clay, filter cake, prepared body, granulates or powders.
If the vacuum attachment is combined with the mixing kneader, the frequency converter for the infinitely variable speed control of the mixing kneader’s worm shaft, is necessary.
|Technical data vacuum attachment||Type VV 1||Type VV 2|

|Speed of worm approx.||25 rpm||same|
|Cylinder diameter||100 mm||150mm|
|Motor power vacuum pump||0,75 kW||1,1 kW|
|Suction capacity||10 m³/h||25 m³/h|
