Dual-rotor batch mixer devolatilizes too.

The addition of heating and vacuum capabilities to a prototype batch mixer worked so well at removing moisture and volatiles that Technical Machine Products in Cleveland has applied for a patent on the combination. TMP offers the new VMX vacuum mixers in sizes of 5 to 200 liters. VMX is a traditional dual-rotor intensive mixer with hardened rotors and mixing chamber. Sophisticated controls can profile rotor speed or ram pressure according to time, temperature, or material viscosity (amperage draw). Tel: (216) 281-9500, www.techmach.com
