Nauta® Minimix lab mixer

The Nauta® Minimix is a gentle conical screw mixer, specially developed for R&D work. It offers high quality powder mixtures without the risk of product distortion. Its mixing results offer reliable process information to scale up your process to a production level. The design of the Minimix is based on the Nauta® conical screw mixer, the most common mixing technology for high accuracy and gentle mixing of free flowing powders and pastes. The Nauta® Minimix is available in 3 sizes; 5, 10 and 20 litres.

Typical applications:

  • Gentle mixing of free flowing, fragile and/or segregative powders
  • Mixing of pastes and slurries
  • Liquid addition to powders and pastes
  • Temperature treatment, cooling / heating
  • Reactor vessel in pressurized / vacuum conditions (special option)
  • Live hopper for sticky or segregative products

Nauta® Minimix


The Nauta® Minimix is a convective mixer with high mixing efficiency, gentle on the product and it guarantees the highest level of mixing accuracy without product distortion.

The mixing effect is achieved by a rotating mixing screw and orbit arm. The rotating cantilevered mixing screw conveys the product from the bottom of the vessel to the product surface. The mixing screw is suspended from an orbital arm which takes the mixing screw along the conical vessel wall, causing a convective mixing effect of particles.

When recirculated by gravity in a conical vessel, the speed of particles in the downwards mass flow increases as the vessel diameter decreases. These simultaneous actions result in fast and intensive mixing with low power consumption and high mixing accuracy.


The Nauta® Minimix is a stand-alone mixer with support frame and controls, available in 3 sizes and 2 types.
