HASLER Group’s R&D laboratories developed the Ultimate Continuous Processor™ to meet the production constraints of high viscosity material conversion.

All production stages are integrated into the same unit:

  • Granulation
  • Crystallisation
  • Densification
  • Coating
  • Encapsulation
  • Densification
  • Disintegration
  • Grinding
  • Homogenising
  • Baking
  • Crystallisation
  • Compacting
  • Coating
  • Mixing
  • Kneading

The advantages of Ultimate Continuous Processor:

A SUITABLE SUPPLY SECTION: Capable of handling materials with varying particle sizes and low bulk density components.

A DOUBLE HULL: compatible with temperature control (heating or cooling). This shell extends the range of UCP functions (reaction, melting, crystallisation, controlled phase change) and optimises quality (consistency).

TIGHT CLEARANCE: (moving parts/walls – moving parts/moving parts), optimised shear, heat exchange (ideal for heat sensitive products) and improved residence time control.

CONSTANT AND OPTIMISED PROCESSING VOLUME: The output hatch can be used to optimise the use of the processing zone volume. The narrow gap between the components in the processing zone prevents material from accumulating in unused areas and also ensures a constant processing volume.

HIGH TORQUE AND LOW SPEED: The UCP operates at high torque without generating pressure. This feature reduces energy and maintenance costs while ensuring compatibility with demanding material transfer processes.

EASE OF CLEANING: Easy access to the areas to be cleaned and a small internal space.

LOW MAINTENANCE AND SOLID CONSTRUCTION: Low wear (slow rotation, low internal pressure, etc.)

LOW ENERGY CONSUMPTION: Optimum power/performance ratio (high torque) and optimised heat exchange thanks to the close spacing of the components in the processing zone help to establish the UCP as a low-energy system.

INSTRUMENTATION AND CONTROL SYSTEM: Thanks to its instrumentation and control system, the UCP can be used to accurately track batches and production.

CONTROLLED TEMPERATURE MIXING: Low temperature mixing is possible to protect the structure of the material and heat sensitive materials. The UCP can also be used for hot melt mixing.


How can mixing, which is simply defined as the work of viscous products, relate to the industrial priorities of today and the future?
