The mixing of solids, powders, granules, fibres and flakes represents one of the essential basic processes for the production of foodstuffs, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, plastics, dyestuffs, detergents and intermediate materials.
This book covers the theoretical and practical aspects of the mixing of solids and presents an overview as well as detailed know-how and experience. The book demonstrates the state of the art of mixing and segregation technology, quality control, design of mixers, design scale-up and engineering of complete processes. Various designs of batch and continuous mixers are analysed.
The book includes checklists for the layout of mixing and processing plants, criteria for the selecting of batch or continuous process and examples of installed mixing systems. The text is filled with helpful tools for mechanical, chemical and process engineers and chemists involved in the planning, engineering and operating of such systems.
