Round LPDE Plastic Carboy Mixer

Mixing four plastic carboy containers was made possible using our End-over-End Drum Mixer core design, along with a custom head assembly. 

Customer requirements

A large European pharmaceutical company had a requirement to mix 20 litre carboy containers of a fixed size. The bottles had to be mixed end-over-end, four at a time. As there was no ATEX requirement the unit could be electrically powered via a mains power supply.

Key functionality required:

  • mix plastic bottles at between 2 and 7 revolutions per minute (RPM);
  • mixer to automatically stop when the gate/cage is opened;
  • mixer to only function when containers are secured/locked in-place;
  • docking feature to be fitted to return bottles to vertical at the press of a button;
  • include an integrated mix timer which automatically stops the mixing cycle.
