A new product from Inox Australia – based on the highly regarded and proven Instantiser mixer for high-speed and high-shear mixing of powders and liquids – was released this month for food manufacturers of viscous product such as dips, soups, and sauces.

The point of difference here is that the Scorpion Instantiser has been fitted with cutting blades and a scraped surface agitator, in combination with the proven standard Instantiser impellor design.

This means that food manufacturers can load the unit with whole pieces of product such as onions, vegetables, peas, or any solid food product that can be cut, to produce a consistent and well blended product.

The Scorpion Instantiser can process very high viscosity food products due to the scraped surface vertical agitator, which ensures the movement of the product, as well as peeling of product from the side walls of the internal tank shell.

Inox Australia is a food process system and equipment manufacturer. From single specialised process equipment and end-to-end process food processing projects. All completed within its Melbourne facilities.

Inox is a member of the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA).
