The FAMSUN molasses mixer is explicitly developed for ruminant feed production and the challenging properties of molasses. The latest generation of FAMSUN STHJ Molasses Mixers (see Fig.1 and Table 1) are now available for higher mixing efficiency, fewer residues, easier maintenance, and better product quality.
Highlights of the new machine include:
Improved mixing efficiency. Compared to the previous versions of the same model, the production capacity of the new generation is
improved by 15-20%. The adoption of a belt drive ensures stable and reliable transmission, and the service life of a belt for the new STHJ mixer is
expected to be more than one year of working time.
Better mixing homogeneity. Molasses is injected into the mixer by a compressed air-atomizing device, which creates a uniform distribution of
molasses particles and allows them to make uniform contact with other feed ingredients. The paddle arrangement on the mixing rotor includes
optimized angles to achieve reinforced mixing effects and excellent quality products. The product, when discharged from the molasses mixer, is
of uniform color and has no agglomerations in the mixture.
Fewer residues. Thanks to structural optimization, the rotating paddles can create a continuous spiraling trajectory along the shaft during
production. Together with the small gap between the paddle tip and the inner wall of the mixer, the paddles can more effectively push the feed
mash out of the discharge. Because of the minimal remaining residue, the troublesome agglomerations that usually coat the paddle and the
inner wall of the mixer are now eliminated.
Wear resistant paddles. Tungsten carbide coated mixing paddles improve wear resistance and extend the replacement cycle to over
8,000 tons of feed production. Re-use of the worn paddles is made possible by adding new layers of tungsten carbide, significantly lowering
Easy cleaning. The new generation molasses mixer is also equipped with a heat preservation device to prevent hardening and accumulation
of feed particles on the inner wall of the mixer, which facilitates periodic cleaning work.
More precise feeding.The mixer includes a standardized molasses screw feeder that matching the size of the unit. Sensors at the molasses
feeder provide critical feedback and feed delivery information to the control system. This approach prevents molasses from injecting without
feedflow, thus avoiding further agglomeration problems. For the technical parameters of the molasses screw feeder, please refer to Table 2.
