VortX Tornado F3 Starch Mixer Machine Features

VortX uses a proprietary 10-step adhesive mixing process that efficiently prepares precise starch batches in far less time than other systems. Batches are mixed and ready in 10 to 12 minutes versus 30 minutes or more for other systems. This reduction in batch preparation time allows the following production benefits:

  • Faster corrugator start-ups
  • Smaller batches are more closely matched to the product being run
  • Just-in time delivery of starch to the corrugator as needed.

Its precise process control of all ingredient additions and temperatures makes VortX the best solution for any attribute required, especially for microfluting. VortX can be configured for standard corrugators and high-volume corrugators or even two corrugators running simultaneously. Learn more about the benefits of this automatic starch mixing system below.

Benefits of the VortX Tornado F3 Starch Mixer Machine

Including a Vortx starch mixing system to your existing product line will create faster corrugator start-ups, smaller batches more closely matching to the product being run, just-in time delivery of starch to the corrugator as needed, and fresher, more consistent starch that can improve bonding and reduce starch application. Moreover, distinct attributes of the mixing system, can decrease the need to add specialty additives, that result in extra costs.
