Mixers & Homogenisers.

Find out how this RS Industria module could help to make significant operating cost savings for industries utilising mixers and homogenisers.

Industrial homogenisers and mixers are used across a range of different sectors from bakeries through to the preparation of lubricants. They can be designed to mix a range of products across all three phases and can be both batch and inline.

High speed batch mixers are used in a range of different applications such as bakeries and in the production of potato snack, crackers, hard biscuits, rotary, wire cut and pet food biscuit dough with mixing capacities up to several tonnes in capacity. They can be either vertical or horizontal shaft arrangements and are fitted with a variety of systems to handle the feedstock and the finished mix.

Indicative Savings.

RS Industria - Icons_R2_RS_Energy


A 300 kW mixer will consume around £200,000 worth of electricity (June 2022 prices).

Mechanical issues with motors can reduce efficiency of the motor by 10%, increasing electricity cost by £20,000/annum

RS Industria - Icons_R2_RS_Change


Understand causes of quality issues and avoid scrapped batches of product, often costing up to £3,000 or more.

Preventing a catastrophic breakdown will avoid spares spend and production downtime. A typical breakdown would be 12 hours lost time at £1,000 per hour, resulting in a £12,000 cost.

Indicative Costs & Payback

600% ROI Payback within four months.

Year 1 cost - £7,000

Annual Monitoring Cost - £1200*

Hardware costs - £4,000

Commissioning - £2,000

* This represents the mixer's share of the annual monitoring fee.


Required hardware will depend on source of consumption data and variables monitored:

  • Energy meter—if no process control data available
  • Vibration sensors


Our specialists configure the system and run end-to-end testing prior to go-live.

Monitoring Cost

Share of Annual service fee, based on monitoring 11 parameters for this asset type.

Actual implementation may use more or fewer parameters than this example, depending on requirements.
