Self-Cleaning Paddle Mixer

The FlexTurbulizer® bridges the gap between high-shear agglomeration and the need for a self-cleaning mixing operation. Using a consistently flexing mixing chamber, this technology can process materials that would otherwise build-up in static-bodied wet agglomeration processes. The FlexTurbulizer® introduces enough energy into the material to create a strong, stable product that can’t be achieved in existing self-cleaning agglomeration equipment, such as vertical instant mixers. By adjusting the liquid addition rate and rotor speed, particle size is controlled to produce consistently sized and particles that meet your requirements for density and dissolution.


  • Self-cleaning chamber results in less wear and more consistent power draw and granule quality when handling cohesive materials
  • Liquid delivery system designed to ensure uniform distribution without fouling
  • Inherent interaction between material and the flexible mixing chamber results in more consistently rounded particles
  • High-shear and controlled retention creates stronger, denser particles up to 3mm

The FlexTurbulizer® paddle mixer provides a solution for agglomerating or granulating cohesive materials. During operation, the flexible mixing chamber is consistently depressed, clearing material buildup from the inner walls. This continuous cleaning cycle prevents excessive material buildup which minimizes wear and provides more consistent operation and granule formation. It is often provided as part of a complete wet agglomeration system, including material handling ahead of the mixer, a curing step (typically a Bepex Fluid Bed), and particle sorting following to maximize yield and product consistency. It can also be retrofitted into existing agglomeration systems where cohesive materials are causing processing headaches.

The FlexTurbulizer® paddle mixing system is just one of the agglomeration technologies we employ to develop industrial process systems that meet your application requirements. At Bepex, we are committed to developing the best agglomeration process systems using the right technology. Between our proven industrial process equipment and decades of experience serving the industry, we are able to design a wet agglomeration system that is right for you.
