There’s an old saying that contains a hardcore truth, and it’s all about getting what you pay for. That’s because whether you pay a lot or a little for something, the fact is that going with something at a discount price generally means it isn’t something of the highest quality. All of this comes into play in a big way in the business world, as company owners, especially those that work in heavy industries that must keep up their equipment rosters, must make the hard buying decisions when it comes to committing to new pieces of equipment.
Ultimately, buying heavy industrial equipment is a big decision on the part of a company, and that’s why it’s so important to carefully do the research before making a commitment to buy. These types of purchases are expensive, but quality equipment, even if it costs more, will serve a company’s needs for a longer time and ultimately pay dividends over time.
Types of Industrial Mixers
Companies that use industrial mixers need to consider the many types of mixers available today before deciding on a purchase, and think about the pros and cons of each type and how they will be applied to a specific use.
Rotary drum blenders are becoming a more popular choice for industrial use, as these blenders can mix materials quickly and thoroughly. Unlike ribbon blenders or rotary blenders, this type of blender doesn’t actually have moving parts in the blender drum. This can be an advantage as there isn’t any danger of product being sheered away while the mixing is happening. In addition, these blenders take up less space, and they use less horse power. Though they are priced higher, the savings in power use can lead to a greater savings over time.
Fluidizers are a newer choice that is actually more efficient than ribbon or paddle style blenders. They haven’t totally caught on in the US market yet, but they are likely to over time.
Yes, there are many aspects to consider when ordering a new industrial blender, so it’s wise to take the time to really get the purchase researched in full, and to remember that since you get what you pay for, don’t try to save money by getting materials that are cheaper, but of lower quality.
