Industrial mixing technologies and mixer designs depend on the nature of the materials you need to mix. Whether you are mixing powder, paste, slurry or liquid applications, there are a variety of industrial mixing equipment and mixing technologies in the market. And after investing so much time, money and energy into finding the right mixing equipment, the primary goal is to have it operational for many years to come. After all, the longer it continues to operate at optimal levels, the better the return-on-investment.
However, even the most state-of-the-art system will eventually be replaced. Due to scientific advancements and changing technologies in the industrial mixing and blending industry, it is likely that yesterday’s mixing system will become obsolete as newer, more efficient models emerge. Besides, changes in a product’s composition or addition of new ingredients to the production also create the need for updating mixing equipment. Fortunately, there are many distinct advantages to investing in a new type of mixing equipment.
Here are 4 benefits of using new industrial mixing technologies:
Reduced Production Time
Time is much more valuable than money because it can never be replaced. Therefore, mixing equipment operating under new technology will yield the same or better results in less time, the improved performance is a great benefit to your production.
Modern mixing equipment can also significantly reduce the amount of raw ingredients wasted during each production cycle. The elements used to create the end product often represent a substantial cost to the manufacturer. Therefore, even small reductions in this area can translate into significant cost savings over time.
Increased Production Capacity
This benefit is directly related to the first two. Saving time and reducing waste allows for greater production output without spending more time or investing in larger amounts of raw ingredients. As long as there is a ready market for this enhanced output, having more product to sell at the end of each production run will directly benefit the bottom line.
Lower Operational Costs
Newer systems like the high viscosity mixer are often more energy efficient than older models. Scientific advances in mixing equipment technologies have made it possible to achieve optimum results with smaller energy inputs in some cases. Spending less to run the system can yield significant long-term savings.
