The SEMCO Pressure Mixer is designed for blending two or more liquid or viscous materials into one homogeneous mixture, without the possibility of air being admitted. Any quantity from a full quart (Model 1350), to 5 quarts (Model 1378) of materials may be mixed in a few minutes and the mix delivered, while still under pressure.
Action of mixer is provided by two double acting air cylinders. The lower cylinder first forces entrapped air through an air bleeder and seal at the top of the container and then holds the container under pressure while the upper cylinder forces a dasher through the material with an involved motion that gives you a thorough mix and blend.
An automatic reversing mechanism has been provided for the dasher. This feature guarantees full stroke, making positive contact between dasher and container, top and bottom, regardless of the amount of material in the container; otherwise space left either top or bottom would leave some material unmixed.
A counter registers the dasher cycles assuring positive uniformity of batches. The number of cycles necessary to give thorough mix is determined by experiment, or by material manufacturer’s recommendation.
The cabinet is stainless steel. The pot and dasher readily disassemble for easy cleaning.
