Blending and Coating
Pigments & Colorants in the Rotary Drum Mixer
Uniformly mixing 11 different ingredients with thimble amounts of pigment additives is critical to the powdered paint industry. The Continental Rollo-Mixer ® Batch Mixer works well for matching delta L,A,B,& E values, batch after batch, which eliminates the need to rework the batch and adjust the formula with more expensive pigments. Yellow and white highway paints are gently mixed in the Rollo-Mixer ® Batch Mixer without imparting any heat or friction into the powdered formula and makes cleanup between batches much easier. Cleanout is very important and the Rollo-Mixer ® Batch Mixer allows full internal access from the front and rear, as well as clean-in-place features for water flush and surface drying cycles. Large batches of ink toner and printing pigments are homogeneously mixed in the Rollo-Mixer ® Batch Mixer, as well as pelleted pigments which are used for color matching dashboards and door panels in the automotive industry.
