Maag Americas Announces New COLORex™ Color Mixer
The COLORex™ is used to mix product in-line with a pulverizer to eliminate the typical cleanup time of a central mixer.
Maag Americas adds The ColoRex™ Color Mixer to its line of Ambient Pulverizers. The COLORex™ is used to mix product in-line with a pulverizer to eliminate the typical cleanup time of a central mixer. It is designed for most polymers and for production rates up to 907 kg/h (2,000 lbs/hr).
The COLORex™ can also be used off-line with a loader system and multiple feeders. The COLORex™ mixer is a great alternative to traditional high-speed mixers which are time consuming and costly to clean and maintain.
The COLORex™ Color Mixer will allow the operator to color natural or virgin resins directly out of the pulverizer or from a silo. This is a high intensity mixer that will incorporate any pigment or additive homogeneously.
The COLORex™ Color Mixer is controlled by variable frequency drive for the motor speed and 480V for the mixer itself. The loss-in-weight feeder (LWF) uses 110V. International voltages available.
