As of May 2013, all new Patz 1200 Series, 2400 Series II, and 3600 Series II Vertical Mixers feature the “VORTEX® TECHNOLOGY BY Patz” decal to indicate that their mixing design includes the patent pending Vortex® Screw. A decal is positioned on both sides of the mixer tub for optimal visibility.
Vortex® Technology by Patz
So, how does the Vortex® Screw actually work?
The Patz Vertical Mixer blends large volumes of assorted material for a uniform mixed ration. Using the Vortex® Screw, the ration is combined quickly and efficiently without crushing the ingredients.
Feed is pulled away from the bottom of the mixer walls by the specially designed Vortex® Screw, allowing more material to fall as the screw rapidly lifts the feed. The continuous lifting and falling action creates a thoroughly blended mixture of ingredients within minutes!
The Vortex® Screw quickly moves the Total Mixed Ration to the discharge area for even distribution while providing superior cleanout.
