The Shear Mixer Handling Attachment was designed in response to a customer requirement in the pharmaceutical industry to lift a ‘Silverson’ shear mixer into and from a variety of mixing bowls and containers.
The Shear Mixer and attachment are secured to a ‘Compac’ Lifting Machine where it can be safely lowered and raised.
This bespoke solution features a mounting plate to complement the shear mixer’s bolt hole pattern and ensure a secure hold.
The lifting attachment incorporates geared rotation to tilt the mixer to any required angle to assist with cleaning of the shear mixer and easy handling and storage in an area with restricted height. The rotation or tilt feature is operated by a handwheel with gearbox. The handwheel mechanism is offset to ensure it does not obstruct the lift and rotation processes.
In addition, the lifting machine features safety proximity switches with an adjustable lower limit switch to prevent the operator lowering the shear mixer beyond the required lower limit and damaging the mixing bowl or drum.
The raising and lowering actions of the attachment are made by a battery powered mechanism which is operated by simple ‘up and down’ buttons that are located ergonomically on the machine’s handlebars.
This lifter is entirely suitable for high care, clean room environments, such as food and pharmaceutical industries.
The attachment is backed up by a full bespoke design service ensuring the right solution can be made to suit most applications and requirements.
All Packline attachments are fully interchangeable and can be easily fixed or removed from any model of ‘Compac’ lifting machine that is fitted with the quick release system.
