High-Speed Vrieco Nauta Cyclomix Mixer from Hosokawa Micron

The Vrieco Nauta Cyclomix®, available from Hosokawa Micron, is a high-shear paddle mixer and agglomerator designed for mixing solid powders with liquids or soften binders. It combines high-impact and high-shear forces for mixing pastes, liquids and slurries. This multi-purpose mixer relies on a centrally placed high-speed rotating shaft that can be controlled from the mixer cover. Paddle-shaped mixing elements, integrated into the shaft, rotate near the vessel wall for thorough mixing.
