The Turbulizer is a continuous high-speed horizontal paddle mixer with paddles located in a single helical or double helical pattern around the rotor shaft. This high-speed paddle mixer has been developed for fine and cohesive powder applications.

The mixing intensity of the Turbulizer can be tailored to the specific application by adjusting paddle pitch and shaft speed. It has maximum tip speeds of up to 40 - 50 m/s and is very effective at dispersing materials in a short amount of time. Typical residence times range from 1 to 20 seconds. The Turbulizer is ideal for low quantities, which in combination with short residence times can provide increased energy efficiency.

The Turbulizer offers flexibility and adaptability for a wide range of applications, like high-intensity mixing, coating, fine agglomeration or continuous reaction of powders with gases. It is capable of extremely high, heat transfer efficiency due to close contact between the material and the heated inside surface. Units can also be fitted with a heating or cooling jacket depending on the process requirements.
