Continuous Kneader

Continuous Kneaders

The LCI Continuous Kneader is a counter rotating twin shaft mixer. The Kneader mixes powders and liquids together continuously and homogeneously, making it ideal for continuous downstream processes that require consistent moisture levels.

The Kneader’s rugged industrial design, coupled with the described features, make this device ideal for wet granulation processes and provide years of trouble-free operation.

Dry powder is introduced into the Kneader at a constant rate. Liquid is added to the moving dry powder through a drip bar or spray nozzle. Liquid and powder are intimately mixed by special kneading blades on each shaft, producing an extrudable wet mass. The twin shafts rotate inward, transporting material along the barrel toward the discharge. The LCI Continuous Kneader is constructed of stainless steel and equipped with a variable speed drive.
