Readco’s Continuous Processor (CP) has been a revolutionary piece of equipment for over 60 years, for a wide variety of industries. From food, chemical, pharmaceuticals, to polymers, and building materials; it has done it all. Designed to mix one or more dry materials with one or more liquid materials on a continuous basis, producing a homogenous product at the discharge end of the unit. The variable configuration of its co-rotating mixing elements and feed ports
allows it to process a wide array of products! Need a mixer that can produce high shear and handle high viscosity material production? No problem, the Readco Continuous Processor loves high viscosity materials; and with the capability to precisely adjust the amount of shear imparted into a product. This allows it to be used for gentle kneading as well as lower viscosity applications.
