Continuous Manufacturing of Highly Viscous Products


As manufacturers of highly viscous products such as sealants and insulating compounds are aware, the critical stage in the production process involves mixing fine particulate solids with a viscous fluid. Costly extruding machines with a high energy consumption are generally used for this purpose. Ekato RMT has developed a new machine concept which significantly reduces the energy used in this process. The mixing tools are designed to divide the container, through which a continuous flow of materials passes into two parts: an intensive back-mixing area and an area of high shear intensity. The solids are wetted in the mixing area and then fully dispersed in the shear area with plug flow behaviour, which ensures consistently high product quality.
