V Powder Mixer

The Hywell Machinery V powder mixer, sometimes also called Y shaped Mixer or V cone blender, is one type of the well-known Tumbler Mixer (the other type is the EYH series rocking mixer) which is very popular for the intimate blending of free-flowing dry powders, granules, and crystals. It is featured by the very simple design and easy to clean construction. V series powder blenders are featured by a gentle high-flowing mixing process for solids/solids in a proportion of up to 1:100 with the possibility of using an intensifier bar to enhance the mixture and solids/liquids in powder or granulate form with different specific weights

V Powder Mixer is characterized by low energy input and this operation works well with formulations that are free-flowing and have similar physical properties. Portable units are available to working volumes of up to 300 liters and stationary units may be designed for batch volumes exceeding 5,000 liters. The barrel of V type mixing machine adopts arc shape connections and its well polished and reach GMP.

V Powder Mixer Principles

The V Powder Mixer is composed of two drum formed and welded together. The shape of the container is asymmetric with respect to the axis. The motor and reduce are connected by belts. When the motor to drive reducer , The reducer rotate with the coupling to make the barrel rotary continuously. Due to the rotating motion, the powder particles are continuously alternated, divided, and merged in the inclined cylinder; the materials are randomly transferred from one area to another area, and at the same time, the powder particles are slipped between the particles, and the particles are superimposed multiple times in the space. It is continuously distributed on the newly generated surface, so that shearing, diffusion and mixing are repeated. The V mixer machine is our widely absorbing, digesting foreign advanced technology, combined with the new type conditions of successful research and development. Reasonable structure, stable performance, convenient operation. The whole machine features novel design, compact structure, and good appearance, the evenness of mixing reaches 99% , and thevolume charge maximum factor reaches 0.6.

Due to the characteristic shapes of V powder mixer formed by two normally identical sections joined at a specific angle, axial flows are created inside which separate and join the product to be mixed, and which together with the radial action of the mixture, results in a rapid and uniform mix Discharge is via an outlet at the base of the two cylinders, where a butterfly valve is fitted with lever control or pneumatic activator. Contact us to learn more about our complete lines, Mixers and high shear granulator mixing solutions for customers in the adhesive, food, and chemical industries.All V powder blender can be supplied with appropriate safety railings and Safety railings with limit switch/safety switch interlock.

Components of a V Powder Mixer

1.Mixing Chamber

The mixing chamber is the main component of a V-type powder mixer. It is a V-shaped container that is designed to hold the powder or granules that need to be mixed. The shape of the mixing chamber ensures that the powder or granules are efficiently mixed, and there is minimal dead space.

2.Agitator (Optional )

The agitator is the component of the mixer that is responsible for mixing the powder or granules. It is usually a paddle or ribbon-shaped structure that rotates around a central shaft. The agitator is designed to lift and tumble the powder or granules, ensuring that they are evenly mixed. this part is optional, normal powder mixing is not needed for this part.

3.Discharge Valve

The discharge valve is located at the bottom of the mixing chamber and is used to discharge the mixed powder or granules. It is usually a simple butterfly valve that is manually operated. for the medicine powder mixing process, the discharging valve needs a GMP model that can disconnect and clean each part of the valve.

5.Driving unit

the driving unit includes the motor and gearbox and chain and so on.The motor is the component of the powder mixer that drives the V-shell drum.


The frame is the structure that supports the mixing chamber, the agitator, and the motor. It is usually made of stainless steel or mild steel and is designed to provide stability and support to the entire mixer.

7. Control Panel

The control panel of the Y shape mixing  is composed of a Start button, a Stop button, an Emergency Stop button, and power indicators.

How The V Shell Blender Works

The Hywell Machinery series V blending Machine has a “V” chamber made up by two cylinders. Powders and granules are fed into the V chamber either manually or by a vacuum conveyor. A gear motor drives V blenders to roll in 360 degrees. This multi-dimensional motion makes the powders and granules inside tumbling up and down and colliding to each other all the time, and achieve uniform mixing in short time.
