Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1022053A1] A mixer (1) e.g. for use in the food or chemical industry comprises a vessel (2) having a base portion (3) and an upper portion (4) whose interiors have rotational symmetry about an axis (S), and blades (6) carried by arms (7) which are rotatable about an axis (R) so that an edge (9) of each blade (6) sweeps across the interior surface of at least the base portion (3) of the vessel (2). The base portion (3) of the vessel (2) is hemispherical, the axis of rotation (R) of said arms (7) is obliquely inclined to the axis of symmetry (S) of said vessel (3), and the blades (6) are carried by three arms (7) and are spaced apart along each arm (7) and staggered as between one arm and the next thereby to allow sweeping of substantially the full extent of the interior surface of the base portion (3) of the mixing vessel (2). <IMAGE>
