Twin Shaft Horizontal Batch Mixers

Scott Equipment's new Twin Shaft Mixer (TMS) Series of horizontal mixers offer another option to consider when selecting the mixing technology for your batch mixing process. The TSM Batch Mixer offers counter rotating ribbon/paddle agitators that produce a homogenous mixing of various materials in a balanced action throughout the mixer. The combination of paddles and ribbon flighting mounted on the twin agitator design offers unsurpassed mixing efficiency for a wide variety of products.

Our twin shaft mixers offer a high rotation mixing action in combination with an end-to-end conveyance design of the agitator which results in shorter cycle times and better repeatability from batch to batch. The TSM also offers the opportunity to mix a wide variety of batch sizes and still achieve excellent mixing results. With its lower overall mixer profile, because of the low diameter to length ratio, the TSM is an excellent choice should height limitations be a concern.
