Feed Mixers 

Horizontal Batch Feed Mixers

The horizontal ribbon mixers from Rhys Thomas are the ideal equipment to efficiently produce homogenous mix from granular and dusty raw material bound for cattle feed, chemical, mining, and construction industries.

The mixers can be upgraded with liquid injectors for ingredients such as oils, sugar cane molasses, and chemical additives of varied composition.

Our mixers operate under the principle of fierce load agitation by the combined movement of the load in multiple directions and differential velocities.


Starting at  $15,599.99


The external ribbon extends from the main rotor, and pushes the load length-wise, at the same time it raises the load in a combination of vertical and oblique movements, which angles and velocities change variably, thus, producing multiple stroke zones giving a thorough mix.


An inner ribbon brings the load in the opposite direction, at the same it produces the same movement effects previously described above.

The load, composed of stock and additive materials, achieves a homogenous mix in a very short time.

Our mixer is comprised of a batter style container of a semi-circle profile, fabricated of steel gauges strong enough for long operational life. 

Inside this container, is a main rotating shaft with two opposite (outer and inner) ribbons.

The width of the ribbons is carefully balanced to achieve a similar flow between them despite the difference in the sweeping radius of each.

At one end of the shaft, sits a reduction gearbox linked to a power source through pulley-belt transmission setup.

  • Wide main shaft to absorb load spikes by overloads and startups with full dry/mixed loads. Big diameter rotor, that transmits high torque at slow RPMs.

  • Reduction gearbox in all models, allow our mixers for a continuous 24/7 operation.

  • Different power sources available by three-phase/ single-phase motor in different voltages and frequencies. Available also in tractor PTO and engine configuration. 

  • Integrated discharge valve in centered or offset position.

  • Bearings oversized to demanding loads, protected from contact with the load through relief shims, and retainer stuffing-box style and/or synthetic seals.

  • Top cover with built inspection hatch with sight safety guard. Nipple connection included for optional liquid injection systems built into the equipment.​

  • Nipple connection for optional liquid dispersion systems built into the equipment.​One or two liquid dispersion rods can be assembled from the factory.

  • Each bearing is equipped with an additional steel collar fixed to the rotor to guarantee its axial position.
