Compare Even Mix™ to Other Mixers
“We (Mansfield-King) are a large manufacturer of personal care products, everything from creams to lotions to shampoos. That means we have a ton of mixing needs for products that vary widely in their rheology. Especially in drums and IBCs, traditional mixing technologies are pretty weak--we find that Even Mix is an outstanding solution. Even Mix brought used their patented blade in a very specific and challenging project with us and it has worked out very well. Our whole team has been impressed.”

You need to mix your various inputs to create creams, lotions, or shampoos with an even and consistent makeup. Once you've gotten them mixed you need them to stay mixed. We have the experience supplying personal care product contract manufacturers, CBD manufacturers mixing CBD oils into lotion, and several hand sanitizer producers. If you are beginning with a lotion or gel or introducing a thickening agent to produce a gel, we can help get you there. You pay a lot for the chemicals and additives you use and you need them to be mixed completely and evenly. Even Mix™ can easily be installed on an IBC or plastic tote as well as an open tank up to 5,000 gallons to mix the entire contents quickly and consistently.
Types of Mixers
Most mixers look like boat props and produce a lot of vertical flow. These mixers are usually ran at high speeds and produce a deep vortex. They sheer the product and introduce air into the liquid. Others are impellers and produce only axial flow (outward horizontal flow). These mixers don't create much circulation and don't mix much vertically. Finally, there are pitched blades that have a constant pitch across the blade. They produce a significant vertical flow and a deep vortex. They don't accomplish much horizontal mixing and introduce a lot of air into the liquid. We don't sheer and don't introduce air into your product.
Even Mix™ and our patented mixing blades are uniquely designed not chop and blend the inputs we give them movement. Our blade design creates a 3D circulation around the entire tank or vessel. Our mixing blades create circulation down and then out creating a cycling motion from bottom to top and inside to out. We used a NASA Engineer to design the optimum flow pattern for liquids to give you the best results. Notice that Even Mix™ blades have a variable pitch. They begin at 90 degrees and bend gradually to 30 degrees at the end of the mixing blade. This variable pitch is the patented feature and creates circulation without high speed, a vortex, or sheer which are all undesirable outcomes when mixing.
Our mixers are made with non reactive and food grade Stainless Steel 316 on all of the wetted parts. The mixer is sealed to insure that gear box grease doesn't make it into your product. The components of the mixer are easy to disassemble, clean, and put back together. Cross Contamination is a primary concern of your industry and we have an innovative product that you'll be interested in. Our air or electric drive are able to be used with multiple mixers. They are easy to connect and disconnect to mixers allowing the mixer to be dedicated to a specific product and avoiding cross contamination.
We have integrated our mixers into all types of containers up to 5,000 gallons. We can interface with NPT openings, flanges, Tri-Clamp Fittings, and many others.
