Vrieco-Nauta® conical screw mixer

The Vrieco-Nauta® conical screw mixer is a batch mixer specially designed for segregative, free-flowing powders and pastes. It’s named after Mr. J.E. Nauta, who developed the first conical Nauta-mixer more than 65 years ago.

The Vrieco-Nauta® conical screw mixer is famous for its low-intensity mixing and is a pioneer in mixing technology. It's especially suited for delicate products and processes where very accurate results are required and is synonymous with gentle mixing of large volumes of up to 100 000 litres.

Active Freeze Drying system

Freeze drying (lyophilisation) has been used industrially for decades to preserve foodstuffs and organic materials. However, traditional tray-type freeze dryers are labour intensive. Hosokawa's Active Freeze Drying system eliminates this drawback and is a big step forward in the field of freeze drying thermo sensitive bulk solids as well as in powder technology in general. Due to the agitated freeze drying process, different product characteristics can be improved without the need of post-processing steps.

The Active Freeze Drying system offers unique possibilities for freeze drying various types of materials in one processing step, always resulting in a fine loose powder which is directly available from the product collector. Material consistencies can range from solutions, dispersions to paste and even wet solids. The key benefits of this technology are efficiency, minimal handling and a consistent, high product quality.
