Vortex Mixers are used to prepare mixtures of clay bonded foundry sands.

Vortex Mixing is distinct in the high linear and rotational velocities of the filler particles. The distribution of the binder in the mixture volume and on the surface of filler grains goes under the action of high dynamic energy. The intensive multidirectional translational-rotational motion of the whole mixture, its micro volumes and each particle provides a high-quality homogeneous mixture with the flawless covering of each grain. High speed grain motion and continuous collision of the particles lead to the so-called mechanical activation of the binding complex, thereby increasing the strength characteristics of the mixture.

Continuous mixture aeration while mixing process improves its mouldability and rammability and allows preparing of high strength mixtures up to 20 MPa practically maintaining the mixer performance.
