The Mk VIII Rollo-Mixer®

Superior Uniformity & Cleanout in Dry Blending

Mk VIII Rollo-Mixer® Dry Blender

The Mk VIII Rollo-Mixer® is a dry blender designed for uniformly blending dry food grade powders vitamins, nutraceuticals, sports drink powders and dietary supplement powders. Data shows the Mk VIII Rollo-Mixer® to be one of the best dry powder blenders for mixing supplement and food powders. It has been setting high standards in the contract manufacturing and dietary supplement industries for many years now. Tests have proven and results have shown the Mk VIII to be superior for uniformity, clean-out and overall efficiency than typically used dry powder blenders in those industries such as V, cone, and ribbon or paddle blenders.

This dry blending equipment design is excellent for high purity batch mixing applications, where cleanout and easy access are critical for quick product change, such as: nutritional powders, nutraceuticals, dietary supplements, powdered drink mixes, supplement powders, and other food grade powders. Also, metal powders, plastic piping & tubing and refractory ceramic powders.

Loading

The Mk 8 Rollo-Mixer is designed to receive material by gravity at the 12:00 position, shown above. Bag & barrel stations are used to charge the mixer, and can be fed through de-lumpers. The innovative retractable seal design, allows for a safe, smart, dust-free load in cycle.

Discharge

After uniformity is achieved, the dry powder mixer is ready to discharge the batch in the 6:00 o’clock position. A programmable butterfly valve is adjustable from 0–100% open, giving full control of product flow. The retractable bladder seals against any barrel, tote or super sak. As batch is discharged, we allow ventilation for the tote by displacing the air to a dust collector or plant wide system. This provides a dust-free batch cycle on the dry powder blending. Large Mk VIII Rollo-Mixers can discharge 2,000 lbs in 8 seconds. Discharge is 100%.
