The leading German recycling company AURA GmbH was looking for a suitable mixer for the treatment process for metal-containing residues. After a small scale test set-up on Lindor’s site, a Lindor gentle touch mixer was found to be an extremely suitable solution. The mixer then designed especially for AURA GmbH enables different batches of used catalysts to be mixed with other materials to create usable raw materials for various industries.
AURA GmbH has modern, very efficient and environmentally-friendly technology for recycling metal components from used industrial catalysts and other metal-containing residues from the (petro)chemical industry. The Lindor gentle touch mixer is part of a specially constructed treatment plant that carries out various operations such as breaking and screening. After these operations the blender mixes the catalysts with other products, for example with liquid reagents. With the Lindor mixer it is possible to mix different batches of used catalysts to give an end product with a consistent calorific value.
During his search for a suitable mixer, Mr Grünert, head of technology and development at AURA GmbH, discovered the Dutch company Lindor on the Internet. Grünert says: "We then carried out a small scale representative gentle mixing trial with our materials in cooperation with Lindor. This resulted in the decision to purchase this gentle touch mixer".
The Lindor gentle touch mixer is made of SS 316 L. The design is explosion-safe according ATEX Zone 21 (in the mixer) and Zone 22 (outside the mixer). Because of the abrasive nature of the products to be mixed, gland seals were fitted on both the inlet and outlet side. With a 15kW electric motor the mixer’s energy consumption is very low. Mr Grünert was also pleased to add: "The cooperation with Lindor and their after sales service was very good!"
AURA GmbH is a leading recycling company of industrial catalysts and other metal-containing residues from the chemical and oil industry. The plant is located in Helbra, Germany. AURA GmbH makes an important contribution to closing the recycling cycle by processing the metal-containing residues into chemical raw materials that can be re-used in various industries. 'Nothing wasted' is therefore AURA’s slogan.
Four of our Lindor L1000 drum mixers mix tons of Indian ethnic snacks (Namkeen) daily for the Indian snack giant Haldiram’s. For many Indians drinking Chai (tea) is a daily ritual which must be accompanied by a dish of Namkeen.
Lindor recently launched a "gentle touch" production milk powder mixer and delivered a laboratory blender for the new mixing line of a multinational producer of baby milk powder in Asia. Mixing vulnerable baby milk powder is a delicate process.
