Paddle Blender & Pug Mixer


Pug Mixers are similar to ribbon blender except for the blade configuration. These mixers are also called as the paddle mixer. They are used for numerous processes including compounding, fine mixing, dispersing, suspending, emulsifying, deaerating, tempering, accelerating chemical or physical reactions, granulating, breaking down agglomerates.

Design Highlights
  • This is the most versatile agitator we build. It contains an equal number of forward and reversing paddles which constantly move the ingredients from one end of the mixer's tank to the other.Paddles, which move material toward the outlet, are fitted to the bottom of the tank.
  • Unloading is also faster and clean out more thorough due to the fact only the forward paddles come in contact with the material in the tank when the last part of the load is being discharged.
  • The paddles are positioned to move the material in opposing lateral directions as well as radially. The paddle design is generally employed where friable materials are being blended.
  • Paddle blender consists of several elements: a centrally mounted horizontal shaft that rotates within a cylindrical container, paddles, ploughs or other shaped mixing elements that are attached to the centrally mounted shaft, special openings at the top for feeding materials, flush fitting access doors at the front of the mixer, a flush fitting discharge valve at the bottom of the mixer, which is pneumatically or manually operated, inside a cylindrical conduit and a complete drive unit.


Salient Features

A distinct advantage of this agitator is its ability to precision mix small batches. The mixer may be loaded to only 20% by volume without affecting mixing accuracy. Consequently, a larger mixer may also be employed to mix an occasional small batch without sacrificing mixing accuracy.

This agitator is excellent for mixing both wet and dry ingredients. It's recommended for mixing heavy, resistant items such as fertilizers, plaster, chemicals, vitamins and minerals, detergents, sweeping compounds, drywall products and caulking, as well as coffee, teas, and soil mixes.



These are horizontal mixers utilized for blending dry material, powdery granular, short fibered, moist solids and liquids together with pasty substances up to and including highly viscous masses.
Pastes & Filter Cakes

Liquid addition is possible through spray bars. Cakes and pastes are usually thick and resist blending without a proper mixing design. The mixing action of the "bent" paddle design effectively moves materials such as pigment, minerals, ceramics, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals. Contact parts of the mixers can be polished to any level to help release these sticky materials for minimal batch retention during discharge.

Abrasive Materials

Abrasive materials present a unique challenge to mixing equipment. Standard mixers can wear out quickly when processing abrasive materials. Our line of paddle mixers has the solution. Our special paddle design gently lifts and pushes material producing a gentle cascading action, thus reducing the wear of the agitator. The welded paddles allow for easy wear compensation and eventual replacement. This lengthens the useful life of the agitator while reducing overall maintenance costs. For especially aggressive materials, we can make the paddles from abrasion resistant steel and install abrasion resistant liners for the tank.

Animal Feed

Our Blenders are widely used in Feed mixing industries creating uniform mixes effi ciently. We understand that health of an animal can be dependent on mixes being accurately and uniformly blended.
