The Rollo-Mixer® Mk VIII rotary batch mixer has been setting high standards in the contract manufacturing and dietary supplement industries for many years now.

This design is ideal 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.

Mk VIII Featured Industry Focus
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.
After uniformity is achieved, Mk VIII is ready to discharge the batch in the 6:00 o’clock position. A programmable butterfly valve is adjustable from 0 to 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. Large Mk VIII Rollo-Mixers can discharge 2,000 lbs in 8 seconds. Discharge is 100%.
The Mk VIII Rollo-Mixer® was more uniform and cleaned out better than out V and Cone benders.
The best dry blender we have found and we’ve had them all.
