Performance Analysis and Parameter Optimization of a Planetary Mixer
According to axial symmetry of geometric and kinematical features of the mixing domain of a planetary mixer, definitions of impact factor of crossing, mixing rate and mixing time were put forward for the performance analysis and parameter optimization of the mixer. It was found that the speed ratio of rotation and revolution of the screw blades has strong influence on the mixing process. An optimum revolution speed was obtained on conditions of the speed ratio of rotation and revolution being constant. The fluid mixing system in the mixing tank can be optimized through geometric and kinematical parameters optimization.
