Brawn Process Advantages

Application Engineering Expertise

The Brawn application engineering group is tightly integrated at each step in the sales and order process, from initial specification review to design and testing. Brawn Mixer application engineers recommend solutions based on customer requirements, specifications, and objectives, while keeping in mind other considerations like budgetary requirements. Additionally, the applications group has the capability to perform bench and pilot scale mixing tests in order to scale-up to production levels.

Bench, Pilot, and Full-Scale Testing

Recognizing that many cosmetic applications rely on the effectiveness and precision of mixing and blending process as much as they rely on component ingredients, the Brawn application engineering team has developed comprehensive testing protocols. Tools like computational fluid dynamics software help engineering develop solutions for even the most challenging applications, while dedicated testing facilities enable the Brawn R&D team to refine models developed during the design phase. Bench, pilot, and full-scale implementation studies also often play a crucial role for customers, especially for validation and economic viability prediction.

Modular Platform

The Brawn Mixer modular platform is a flexible process package for many applications in the health, beauty, and cosmetics industries, enabling engineering to deliver both standard and custom mixing solutions with competitive pricing and delivery.

This method also allows organizations to easily service and repair mixers, maximizing uptime and reducing the number of required in-stock spare parts.
