With the increasing popularity of IBC mixers in all product areas, Greaves has recently updated and expanded the models and options in this range.
As customers become more ambitious and make greater demands on their IBC mixing processing we have increased the viscosity range performance, added hoppers and funnel inlets as well as variable speed IP66 control units with shaft speed display.
With our new range, Greaves are taking IBC processing away from its roots of low thrust / slow agitator units.
Our new IBC mixers also overcome limitations previously associated with the geometry of an IBC tank.
Greaves Mixers are UK designed and manufactured to deliver solutions developed for serious manufacturers who are committed to high quality, consistent and flexible processing.
With any investment in mixers, it is vital that you get the best and most cost-effective mixing system for your needs.
Greaves have comprehensive specification and performance documentation available but we recognise that nothing beats a real-world test with your own products.
We have a wide and expanding selection of mixers from across our range which are available for trial or demo*. If you are looking for a longer term test, or have mixing needs where you don’t want to tie-up capital, we can also hire* our mixers to you.
With the continuing focus on system improvement and cost reduction, more and more manufacturers are recognising that reducing the number of process stages in their product cycle can deliver significant benefits.
When IBCs were first introduced in the mid 1990s, they were seen as an ideal transport container and storage solution but for any material processing, product was transferred to a dedicated mixing vessel. More recently there has been a trend towards product mixing directly in IBCs bringing a range of efficiency improvements:
Reduced capital outlay
Reduced stock holding/working capital
Reduced cleaning time
The growth in IBC mixing has led to the development of a number of products to help customers achieve maximum benefit:
Clean in place systems
The demand for scalable samples mixes whilst maintaining production on bulk mixers has also led to the development of a range of laboratory mixers. This is an important element of achieving the best efficiency improvements.
During the first quarter of 2016 Greaves have experienced a 5 fold increase in our already popular IBC mixer range. This mixer unit delivers all the benefits listed above. See here for full details
