Improving products and processes can help dramatically in getting ahead in your respective industry. Finding and customizing the right piece of process equipment for your process can help overcome challenges, points of resistance, and frustrating problems. At Mixer Direct, our experienced team was able to engineer a custom tote mixer for the purpose of research and development at KDC. The custom tote mixer build included a custom drum lid, air lift, variable frequency drive, and two folding impellers. You can see this custom tote mixer in this short video below.
