PMD / PMD-VC Intensive Mixers

Inspirational Mixing Technology: Stationary Mixer for large Batch Processing


The PMD and PMD-VC intensive mixers are stationary mixing and dispersing units for processing large batches.

Separation of the mixing and dispersing operations provides for an extremely energy-efficient process that is especially useful for batches over 2000 l.

The compact enclosed design of the intensive mixer allows for integration into fully-automatic plants and prevents contamination from gases and dust.


  • The PMD / PMD-VC intensive mixer is equipped with a height-adjustable high-speed dispersion disk and a low-speed tank floor/wall scraper
  • Optimal mixing and dispersing efficiency through separation of the two operations
  • The scraper arms support the process in that they intensively move the product into the operational zone of the dispersion disk
  • In addition, the optimal design of the scraper ensures both very rapid product discharge and complete emptying of the tank, as well as good heat exchange via the tank wall
  • The product is dispersed, wetted and homogenized by the shearing forces created by the dispersion disk.
  • Solids are dosed either from above with the ADS (Automatic Dosing System) or below the surface of the liquid with the VDS (Vacuum Dosing System)
  • Both charging systems allow for optimal agglomerate-free dispersion, defined dosing of solids and automatic adjustment of the position of the dispersion disk
  • Excellent product discharge and complete emptying of the tank by means of wall and floor scrapers
  • Various tank geometries allow partial batch processing
  • Emission-free operation due to enclosed design


  • Vacuum design
  • Automatic charging systems for solids and liquids
  • Sub-surface charging system for vacuum operation
  • Fully-automatic cleaning systems (CIP)
  • Feeding of solids via: bag feeding station – Big Bag – silo units
  • Integration into fully-automatic systems possible

So when S & S Druckfarben needed a new manufacturing plant for heat-set - one that would use cutting edge technology and state-of-the-art process controls to deliver a huge 35,000 Tonnes per annum - they too enlisted our services.


When Sun Chemical built a new manufacturing plant using cutting edge technology and state-of-the-art process controls, they looked to the plant and process engineering expertise at NETZSCH.


NETZSCH-Feinmahltechnik GmbH offers mixing, kneading and dispersing machines for low- to high-viscosity products as well as a variety of wet-grinding units for reduction into the nanometer range, tailor-made for each application. When it comes to the processing of dry products by cutting, fine grinding or fine classification, you will find a wealth of experience and an equally varied program of fine-impact mills, classifier and jet mills as well as fine-cutting mills and high-performance fine classifiers.


After a devastating fire in 2008 Sakata Inx España and Sakata Inx Japan looked to the plant and process engineering expertise at NETZSCH. The new production facility for flexographic ink is the largest project of its kind in Europe since 2008, they needed a company that could design the process and then engineer the new plant from start to finish, and also guarantee its final performance.

Ψ-Mix® Inline Disperser

The Ψ-Mix® inline disperser is a revolutionary system for mixing and dispersing solids in liquids. Homogeneous, fine dispersions with exactly reproducible quality are achieved through a controlled, emission-free process.

PMH / PML Planetary Mixing and Kneading Machines

The NETZSCH planetary mixing and kneading machines show their true magnitude with difficult-to-disperse products and high viscosities. In particular, dispersion of finely-powdered and lightweight components in liquids is accomplished extremely quickly with product-specific mixing elements such as crossbeam and butterfly agitators or various dispersion disks.

MasterMix® Dissolver

The NETZSCH MasterMix® dissolvers are fast, high-powered dispersing units for simple mixing tasks. They can easily process products with viscosities up to 100 Pa·s from a broad range of applications.
