ZX Mixer Extruder

The ZX sigma mixer extruder delivers a combination of the highest shear forces to the product along with the extrusion of the final product through to the next stage of the production line.

Constructed entirely from stainless steel, with optional 316 grade stainless steel for product contact parts, tailored finishes including polishing, bead blasting, or mill finish are available. Special hardened steels, coatings, and finishes cater to high-wear applications, with customisable die plate arrangements for pelletising, drying, or pure extrusion based on your product needs.

Discover the versatility of Winkworth’s mixer extruders, meticulously crafted to excel in kneading viscous substances and even the most challenging doughs with precision. While primarily tailored for batch mixing, these mixers seamlessly transition into semi continuous operation when needed. As the extruder screw rotates, it enhances the mixing, folding, and kneading stages, ensuring optimal consistency. Upon completion, a simple reversal of the screw directs the product away from the blades, facilitating smooth extrusion through a nozzle or die plate.

Standard Features

  • The twin Z blade design makes the kneading and folding action highly efficient
  • Screw extrusion provides controlled discharge and easier product handling
  • Full stainless steel construction throughout
  • All models conform to the “CE Mark” European Directives and the “UKCA” marking requirements
