Flat-Bottom Processor

The flat-bottom processor has a standard bottom-sweep agitator for rapid, heavy-duty mixing and moves product over the heat transfer surface for fast, efficient heating or cooling. There is also an optional side-sweep agitator. This unit is designed for use with viscous products up to 1,500 centipoise. The blades do not contact the sidewall. Horsepower and revolutions per minute are product and application specific
