For fast and gentle mixing, Marion's Fluidizing Paddle Mixer uses large paddles with two-directional sweeping motions to create a fluidizing bed. Minimizing direct contact with the paddles, material is swept by the moving air pushed outwards and inwards in fluid mixing movements. The result is a mixer perfectly designed for delicate materials. With food-grade finishes, Marion's superior craftmanship is what makes this Fluidizing Paddle Mixer stand out from the competition. The patented conical shape means that, compared to the competition, you'll get easier and more complete material discharge, as well as better drainage for cleaning of the mixer, with nowhere for residue to hide. As with all of our mixers, you can add precise customizations that fit your application, because we manufacture all of our machines here in Marion, Iowa. Our laboratories and tooling facilities mean that you get the exact mixer you need for your application--every time.
