Brawn Mixer Advantages

Hygienic Mixer Design

Applications with hygienic or sanitary specifications are common in the food, beverage, and nutraceutical industries. The Brawn Mixer application engineering team evaluates the entire process chain, and takes into account risk factors that extend beyond the mixing operation alone to ensure each mixer contributes positively to overall quality, safety, and optimization goals. Mixers can be designed to conform to applicable standards from all major regulatory bodies, including the FDA, cGMP, USDA, and USP. Comprehensive documentation to fulfill validation requirements is also available.

Brawn mixers are designed to meet hygienic standards are cleanable via either customer or OEM-supplied SIP or CIP systems. All-stainless-steel construction is available for many mixer configurations; drive assemblies can also be coated with Steel-It paint.

Controls and Automation

Many applications demand a high level of process control, or have mixing components that require independent or integrated controls packages. The in-house Brawn Mixer controls team works closely with our UL-listed panel build shop to design and execute a customized solution for ensuring accurate, repeatable mixing results, every time. From NEMA-rated enclosures, to menu-driven touchscreen HMIs, Brawn Mixer has the resources to help you achieve your process goals.

Data Reporting and Integration

Brawn mixers can integrate with local process equipment, or with operation-wide SCADA systems, to improve process control and real-time reporting. Increasingly, isolated islands of equipment are being replaced or upgraded with integrated systems that deliver greater performance. Brawn mixers can be configured to interface with these systems with minimum complexity. And, our installation and service team can provide onsite support for startup and commissioning.
