The different of the horizontal mixer and the vertical mixer

In the fertilizer production line,the fertilizer mixer play an important  role in the process of the production.There are different types of the mixer.According you different meets,you can choose different model mixer.Our company producing different type mixers,and what differences of their?Today we will tell something about the horizontal mixer and the vertical mixer.
Regardless of the horizontal mixer or the vertical mixer,the mixing uniformity of the materials is an important indicator for evaluating the performance of a mixer,and it is also an important factor affecting the whole process and product quality.For the fertilizer production industry,the mixing uniformity influence on the process.
The mixer are mainly composed of a power motor,a transmission mechanism,a dtirring device,a feeding member,a discharging deveice and the like.According to the installation position of a horizontal mixer and a vertical mixer.According to the number of the stirring shaft,it can be divided into a single-shaft mixer and a double--shaft mixer.
Regardless of the structure form of the mixer,the ratio of the feed capacity to the geomertric volume of the mixing chamber,the feeding sequence and feed position of the mixture,the geometry of the arrangement and arrangement of the mixing blades,the speed of the agitation and the blade lining the wear condition etc.These all directly affects the mixing quality of the materials being stirred.
Taking a horizontal mixer as an example,the internal blades move relative to each oher to form a shearing surfance,thereby cutting and boring the material.With the constant rotation of the auger,the material will form a vertical drop when it accumulates to a certain height,free all by the material's own weight to overcome the friction and cohesion,or it will silde down along the inner wall of the feed mixer to form a diffusion.The dropped material is mixed with the material at the bottom of the soil,and the mixture is tumbling in the axial direction to form a cross-mixing mition,which realizes convection and extrusion of the mixture in the soil,thereby making the difference in particle size,mass and water content larger.Different materials slide and infiltrate into each other in the soil,and the material is multi-cycle stirring motion in the three-dimensional space in the silo,and is continuously and uniformly mixed by shearing,smashing,spreating and stirring to effectively prevent the mixture.The material produces agglomeration,which makes the material more fluffy and guarantees the quality of the post-granulation.

Vertical mixer
Unlike the horizontal mixer,which uses a cyclindrical gear reducer,the vertical mixer has a vertical cycloidal reducer.The mixing chamber has a low cylindrical structure,and the material is laid into a thin layer,so the required power is not very large,and it is more suitable for the stirring of the fertilizer raw materials.Because the fertilizer raw material and its easy moisture absorption,and has a certain viscosity,it is easy to stick to the wall of the disk during production ,forming a dense material bonding layer,resulting in a large interal friction of the machine,so that the blending mixer is subjected to excessive load.In order to avoid  the impact of motor overload on the production ,the feeding port is equipped with a movable protective neet to prevent too much material from entering the mixer on the one hand,and as a safety precaution to prevent accidents during operation.The inside of the soil can also be lined with plastic plates to reduce the material adhesion and friction,and it is not easy to cause the plate body to rust and prolong the service life of the whople machine.
Horizontal mixers and vertical mixers have different adaptability to various materials due to different design methods.In the family of fertilizer production equipment,horizontal mixers are used in organic fertilizer production lines,while vertical mixers mostly used in compound fertilizer prodduction line,for example,in the production of pelletizing granulators,but as a user what kind of mixer is used,you also need to choose according to your own material type.
