Securing these mixers according to the machine directive can be done using a trapped key interlock system. Access through the Mixer hatches is only allowed after the power supply to the mixers has been electrically or mechanically isolated.
Inspection or cleaning during a manual operation (max. 10% power for 10 sec) is possible when the mixer is equipped with a frequency inverter in combination with our two-hands console.
