SOAP MIXERS
The Mixer is usually the first machine of a soap finishing line. The main purpose of a soap mixer, is to amalgamate the soap noodles with colorant, fragrance, solid / liquid additives and fillers (this last for laundry soap). The soap mixers can be divided mainly in 2 types:
 
OPEN SIGMA "Z" MIXER
This soap mixer is characterized by the presence of 1 shaft that assembles 2 mixing blade. It is used in Toilet soap manufacturing, where fillers are not required. The discharge of mixed soap is on the bottom part of the mixing tank and usually is a door that is open and closed by means a pneumatic cylinder.
 
DOUBLE ARM SIGMA MIXER - DSM
This soap mixer is characterized by the presence of 2 mixing shafts for a vigorous mixing. It is mainly used in Laundry soap manufacturing, where fillers are required. Intensive or micro mixing is achieved when the soap noodles are broken up to expose more surface and to allow the ingredients to penetrate inside the soap noodles.
The double arm sigma mixers are equipped with two massive, tangential counter rotating “Sigma” type blades that can handle all the power required in the process. The blades are supported by a set of heavy-duty roller bearings and are driven by two separate gearboxes.
The discharge of mixed soap is on the bottom part of the mixing tank and usually is composed by 2 doors that are open and closed by means a pneumatic cylinder. The double arm sigma mixer can also have a special tilting discharge system. The mixing tank can be jacketed for heating and cooling application and machined to guarantee minimum gap between the blade and the tank.
This mixer is also used in Translucent soap manufacturing.
