YX closed mixing tank, also called stainless steel mixing vessel, is one of the industrial mixing machines for the manufacture of low viscosity preparations and fluid in the cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, food and chemicals industries. It has very similar design as YX vacuum mixing tank except for the thickness of stainless steel and vacuum system.
YX closed mixing tank is usually made of mixing tank, heating and cooling system, temperature control system, electrical control panel etc.
The mixing tank is usually composed of an anchor agitator mounted from the top cover. Two or more baffles depending on the tank size are attached to the inside wall.
During the mixing operation, the anchor agitator rotates clockwise slowly driving the materials move along the wall. When the liquid meets the baffles, some change the moving direction and some pass the baffles from around.
The left part of the anchor mixer moves the liquid upwards and the right part moves it downwards. Because of the two opposite forces by the agitator, the liquid rolls over the vessel from top to bottom and back to top repeatedly. When the liquid is completely mixed and blended, the heat from the jacket is quickly transferred to every part through the inside wall.
