modularplants

pilotscale

With an output of 2-4 tons per hour, it is ergonomically designed to be able to easily add or change equipment to streamline the development stages of a agglomeration project.

fullscale

Our full scale modular plant was developed up to the highest international standards. It has an output of up to 25 tons per hour. It's main focus is to have the smallest possible footprint,  ensuring the least civil works and roof covering.

mixing

whatdeterminesagreatmixer?

  • Homogenic mixing capacity
  • Optimized mixing times
  • Reduced wear, tear and maintenance
  • Cost efficient parts
  • Ease of use
  • After sales service

mixingmethods:

There are mainly two methods for mixing: 
  • High energy mixing High energy mixing is used in more intensive and complicated mixing processes such as the agglomeration process where small amounts of materials and binders needs to be mixed homogenic in short periods of times. 
  • General mixing General mixing is common in the brick making industry where large volumes of materials are mixed together in the most cost-efficient manner.
  • Lab scale mixing Lab scale mixers are generally used to test the required application for larger mixers or to mix small volumes of material in precise lab conditions.

determiningthetypeofmixingtechnologytobeutilized:

Different types of mixing technologies can be utilized to either improve mixing efficiency or reducing the cost to be more suited to your own requirements. The following examples are types of technologies we utilize:
  • High intensity agitators (High speed spindles)
  • Mixing arms
  • Wall scrapers 
  • Mixing pan 
  • Liquid dosing systems 
  • Dry Material dosing systems 
  • Moisture sampling instruments 
  • Automation

mixeroperation

Mixers can be operated in two different methods:
  • Batch
  • Continuous 

Our mixers also have the capability of agglomerating products into pellets or micro pellets. 

howwedesignyourmixer:

Picko designs each mixer according the specific requirements of the client. We use the following information to determine the best design for the appropriate applications.
  • The SG of the materials
  • Moisture content of the materials
  • Client expectations (Agglomeration/Mixing)
  • Fractions and composition of the different materials
  • Mixing recipe required by client
  • Automation/Instrumentation requirements
  • Adding to existing process or installing a new plant 

Engineering design criteria 

  • LV motors are selected according to the specific energy required to efficiently mix the clients material
  • Technologies utilized in the mixing process is selected to best accomplish the requirements set by the client 
  • Automation and instrument requirements are set out by the clients according to their requirements and applicable laws in their area.
