Schuler - Model MS550/MS750 - Multi-Screw Mixers
That has been the foundation of Schuler Mfg. since we began manufacturing cattle feeding equipment in 1964. Located in the heartland of America, our goal has always been to earn our customers' business by delivering equipment that is built with pride and value.That's why we were one of the last mixer companies on the market to introduce our MS550 and MS750 Multi-Screw Mixers. While other companies joined together two single screw vertical mixers and called it a twin-screw 'mixer', we wanted to design and build a better, improved multi-screw mixer with the multiple mechanical means to FORCE exchange of feedstuffs between the mixers.
Even though single screw mixers can be designed to mix well, two single screw mixers mounted to a common floor plate, sharing an open end between them, still act as two independent single screw mixers. The Schuler MS550 & MS750 multi-screw mixers aren't just improved over other twin screw mixers, they incorporated a basic mixing science that works better and adds more value to a multi-screw mixer.
1.With each revolution of the augers, feedstuffs are pulled out of the opposite auger chamber, positively creating exchange of feedstuffs between the augers. Overlapping augers also speed up the cleanout of feedstuffs at the end of a batch. The rear auger can easily feed the front auger and the discharge door because of the overlap feature. Also, baffles between augers are small as a result of the overlapping design. Large baffles slow cleanout and restrict end-to-end feed mixing.
2. Directional baffles between the augers are uniquely designed to produce end-to-end feed movement by being offset from the centerline of the mixing tub. The RH baffle center edge is closer to the front auger and the LH baffle center edge is closer to the rear auger. Because the baffles are offset, feedstuffs quickly transfer over the perpendicular center edge of the baffle when the mixer is being loaded while mixing, creating feed transfer between the adjacent augers which is essential for consistent mixing.
3. Tri-pulse legs on both augers enhance mixing and clean out.
4. Replaceable edge deflector pulls feedstuffs from the mixer sidewalls to load the center of the auger and reduce mixing time.
5. Variable pitch auger flighting reduces horsepower robbing feed drag between the flights. Flighting is 5/8” thick, AR200 steel.
6. Mixer chamber sides are 1/4” thick. Mixer floor is 3/4” thick. Sides are AR200 steel
