What is Horizontal Tank Mixer?

A horizontal tank mixer is a type of equipment used in various industries to blend or mix substances. Unlike vertical mixers, which stand upright, horizontal tank mixers are designed with a horizontal orientation. They are commonly used in applications such as food processing, chemical manufacturing, and pharmaceutical production.

These mixers typically consist of a tank-shaped container lying on its side, equipped with an agitator or mixing device. The agitator can be customized to suit the specific materials being mixed. It rotates within the tank to thoroughly combine ingredients and create a consistent mixture.

One of the key advantages of horizontal tank mixers is their ability to provide a more uniform blend of materials, which can be crucial for certain applications. Additionally, they are well-suited for incorporating ingredients with low inclusion rates, often as low as 1 kg per metric ton. This precision makes them particularly useful in industries where accurate mixing is essential.

Horizontal mixers also tend to have little or no residue left in the tank after mixing, thanks to their design, which ensures complete discharge of the mixed material. This is a notable advantage in applications where cross-contamination or leftover material can be problematic.

In summary, a horizontal tank mixer is a specialized mixing equipment with a horizontal design, ideal for applications requiring precise and uniform blending of ingredients while minimizing leftover residue in the tank.


A Tank Mixer comprises several key components, including a tank cover, tank mixer motor,an agitator, bearings, a driving mechanism, and a sealing device. Depending on your requirements, you can also add heating or cooling equipment to the tank.

Both the tank body and cover come with various features like inlets, outlets, observation ports, temperature and pressure gauges, steam distillation ports, and safety vents. The type of agitator used can vary based on the specific production process, with options such as paddle, anchored, frame, or propeller types. If needed, the factory can customize the design to meet your specific needs.


A Tank Mixer is a hygienic and clean piece of equipment with a fully enclosed vertical design. It comes equipped with functions for heating, cooling, insulating, and mixing. This versatile tank is specially designed for use in the food, dairy, beverage, pharmaceutical, winemaking, flavor, and chemical industries.

The tanks feature a jacketed layer, allowing you to heat or cool the contents by introducing steam or cooling water. The agitator within the tank ensures that the materials are thoroughly mixed at the most suitable temperature.

What does a tank mixer do?

A tank mixer plays a crucial role in winemaking by ensuring that everything inside the tank, like the grape juice and other ingredients, is mixed thoroughly. This gentle stirring action takes place during fermentation, maintaining an even temperature and making sure yeast and nutrients are evenly distributed. It’s also handy when it comes to creating a uniform blend before the wine is bottled, ensuring that every bottle of wine is consistent in quality.

Horizontal Tank Mixer is ideal for blending various ingredients, such as short doughs, tortillas, fillings, pie doughs, health breads, cheesecakes, muffin batter, and a range of other recipes. These mixers come with different mixing arms that can be tailored to the specific type of dough or mixture you’re working with, offering a high degree of customization.

Advantages of Horizontal Mixers:

Uniform Mixing: Horizontal mixers provide a more consistent blend of ingredients. This is particularly important for animal species or classes that receive smaller meals, although it may not be as crucial for others.

Lower Inclusion Rates: Horizontal mixers can incorporate premixes with lower inclusion rates, typically as low as 1 kg/MT. In contrast, most vertical mixers have a minimum inclusion rate of 3 kg/MT.

Minimal Feed Carryover: Horizontal mixers are designed to ensure complete discharge of the mixed feed, minimizing feed residue. Vertical mixers tend to have some unavoidable residue.

In summary, the advantages of one type of feed mixer are often the disadvantages of the other. Therefore, the choice should be based on the specific products being mixed. Consider the following scenarios:

Home Mixers for Farms: Small to medium farms, usually dealing with a single animal species, tend to opt for vertical mixers. This is because they aim to reduce costs and typically purchase low-inclusion level products like premixes locally, which do not require the precision of horizontal mixers. Large farms that make bulk purchases of micro-ingredients may choose a vertical mixer to offset the cost by reducing raw material expenses.

Mixers for Local Feed Plants: Local feed plants primarily focus on producing complete feeds for end-users and generally do not use very-low inclusion level micro-ingredients. They often concentrate on one or two species, with the exception of feeds for sheep and monogastrics, which require minimal feed residue for copper content reasons.

Local Premix Plants: In markets where home mixing is common, local premix suppliers often provide comprehensive premix packages for various species. These businesses are recommended to invest in horizontal mixers for the reasons mentioned earlier, and it can serve as a marketing point of differentiation, although this is not commonly practiced for various reasons.

There are several types of tank mixers, each designed for specific applications and mixing requirements. Some common types of tank mixers include:

Agitators: Agitators are simple mixers that use rotating blades or impellers to stir the contents of a tank. They are commonly used in various industries and come in different configurations, such as paddle agitators, turbine agitators, and anchor agitators.

Static Mixers: These mixers don’t have any moving parts. They rely on stationary elements within the mixer to create turbulence and mix the fluids as they pass through. Static mixers are often used for blending and homogenizing liquids and gases.

Homogenizers: Homogenizers are used to create a uniform mixture by forcing materials through a narrow orifice or valve at high pressure. They are commonly used in the food and pharmaceutical industries to create stable emulsions and suspensions.

Emulsifiers: Emulsifiers are specialized mixers that are designed for creating emulsions, which are stable mixtures of immiscible liquids, such as oil and water. They are used in the production of various products like mayonnaise and cosmetics.

High Shear Mixers: These mixers are used to apply intense shearing forces to mix or disperse substances within a liquid. They are often used in the production of pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and cosmetics.

Ribbon Blenders: Ribbon blenders have a horizontal, U-shaped trough with a ribbon-like agitator that rotates inside. They are commonly used in the food and chemical industries for blending powders, granules, and other dry materials.

Planetary Mixers: Planetary mixers are commonly used in the bakery and confectionery industry. They have a mixing head that rotates on an offset axis while the mixing bowl rotates in the opposite direction, providing thorough mixing.

Magnetic Mixers: These mixers use magnetic fields to rotate a magnetic stir bar within a sealed container. They are often used in laboratories and in applications where it’s important to avoid contamination or leakage.

Bottom Entry Mixers: These mixers are designed to mix the contents of a tank from the bottom, providing efficient mixing and preventing settling of solids.

Top Entry Mixers: These mixers are installed through the top of a tank and are used for mixing large volumes of liquid or slurry materials in industries like chemical processing and water treatment.

The choice of the appropriate tank mixer type depends on factors such as the specific application, the characteristics of the materials being mixed, and the desired mixing results.

During the mixing process, the materials inside the machine are subjected to the action of two rotating rotors moving in opposite directions, creating a motion that conforms to the machine’s design. The paddles on the rotors drive the materials to rotate counterclockwise along the inner wall of the machine while also causing the materials to tumble from side to side. This tumbling motion results in a zone of weightlessness at the intersection of the two rotors. In this area, regardless of the shape, size, or density of the materials, they momentarily experience a state of weightlessness, causing the materials to continuously tumble and interact in all directions within the machine. This leads to a fast, gentle, and uniform mixing effect.

Within the machine, the particles of the materials are influenced by the action of the paddles, undergoing both circumferential and axial movements. Depending on the mixing state of the materials, there are convection mixing, shear mixing, and diffusion mixing.

Convection Mixing: As shown in the diagram, the materials in the two rotor zones flow axially in opposite directions. Upon reaching the ends of the rotors, the action of a set of small-angle paddles at the rotor ends redirects the materials towards the other rotor zone, creating a horizontal cyclic flow of materials throughout the machine. Simultaneously, the materials in the two rotor zones also rotate around their respective axes, forming a vertical cyclic flow of materials in each rotor zone. The materials at the boundary between the two rotor zones also undergo lateral cross-flow.

Shear Mixing: Under the action of the paddles, the materials create shear surfaces and interact by sliding and colliding with each other, resulting in shear mixing.

  1. Diffusion Mixing: Diffusion mixing occurs throughout the machine but is more prominent in the central region, where the two rotors rotate in opposite synchrony. In this area of rotor blade overlap, materials near the central axis are affected by the rotor blades. As these materials leave the paddles’ influence, inertia causes them to disperse in space. During this dispersion process, materials rub against and permeate each other, creating a fluidized area near the central axis. Each particle can move freely in this fluidized area, allowing for thorough diffusion mixing. In this region, friction is minimal, and the mixing action is gentle, preventing segregation of the mixture. This is particularly beneficial for fine particle materials (trace additives).

In summary, the double-shaft paddle mixer achieves efficient and uniform mixing through a combination of convection, shear, and diffusion mixing, resulting in a homogeneous blend of materials.
