Mk X Rollo-Mixer® - Snack Food Batch Blender
The Mk X Rollo-Mixer® is a food grade industrial blender for snacks, designed for extremely gentle batch mixing of very friable dry snack food ingredients. The Mk X 50-35/35s can blend dried fruit and very fragile cracker bits, cashews and a variety of nuts uniformly in 80 seconds. The Mk is Continental’s newest Rollo-Mixer®. It features gentle, uniform blends, complete discharge in seconds and can be rinsed & dried in under 12 minutes. The Mk X Rollo-Mixer® can be made with a fully compliant food grade specification. The rotary drum blender has 35 cu ft of working load volume, as loads vary from 600 to 1,100 lbs depending on product density. Raisins, cranberries, pineapple chunks and other ingredients are loaded into the side of the drum, gently blended and complexly discharged at the six o’clock position, while drum is moving at 4 rpm, and requires only 5 horsepower.
The Mk X is an ideal industrial blender for mixing snacks and nuts, snack mixes, frozen or dehydrated fruits, vegetable and more.

Mk X Applications
The Mk X is easily indexed into to the loading position for loading with touch screen controls. A pneumatic gate comes out to allow the operator to very friable products gently into the drum. Usually these nut and fruit snack blends come in bags and boxes. Once loaded, the mixer blends @ 5 rpm as you can watch your products fold into a uniform state in 80 seconds, or less than 10 revolutions.
Discharging the Mk X is complete and quick requiring only 2 revolutions. A pneumatically actuated discharged door on the drum opens to allow the entire batch to unload into Gaylord bags / boxes or conveying equipment. The Mk X Rollo-Mixer discharges 100% of the batch and is easily cleaned and sanitized.
Homogeneous trail mix blends in 80 seconds, rinsed & cleaned in under 10 minutes.
