Mixing and Proportioning

Mixing and Proportioning

SKIOLD delivers diagonal mixers, horizontal mixers, paddle mixers and small batch mixers for all purposes and capabilities.

A single raw material is not sufficient to cover the feed demand of the livestock. A balanced and homogeneous diet requires mixing of different ingredients. The type and character of the raw materials to be mixed, and requirements to mixing time, are factors to consider when choosing which type of mixer.


The diagonal mixer from SKIOLD is suitable for accurate mixing of almost any kind of raw material in the form of meal or granulate. It is possible to add liquid raw materials, such as fat, molasses, or oil, during the mixing process. The mixing principle based on a large, slowly rotating bottom auger is gentle to the structure of the raw materials, which makes the diagonal mixer well-suited for mixing of feed for cattle, which contains crushed material.

The diagonal mixer is available in three versions:

  • Uni-Mix 500 – 500 kg

  • Uni-Mix 1000 – 1000 kg

  • Uni-Mix 1500 – 1500 kg


The horizontal mixer from SKIOLD is a batch mixer suitable for very accurate mixing of almost any kind of mealy or granulated raw material. The duration of the mixing process is 4-12 minutes, during which it is possible to add liquid raw materials such as fat and oil, as well as up to 50% corncob maize (CCM). SKIOLD’s horizontal mixers are equipped with open double auger, and the mixing chamber is designed with the exact same cylindrical curving as the auger. This ensures a homogeneous mixing and facilitates complete emptying of the mixer.

The horizontal mixer is available in three versions:

  • 1-step – mixer only

  • 2-step – mixer + pre-bin

  • 3-step – mixer + pre-bin + discharge bin

The number of steps is based on requirements to capacity.


The cone mixer from SKIOLD is an accurate weighing bin and efficient mixer in one. The scale is constructed in heavy-duty stainless steel and is very reliable. The function of the cone mixer is to weigh out batches of 30 to 50 kg. The throttle on the mixer opens automatically by means of an air cylinder. A 300 x 300 mm discharge bin made in galvanized plate facilitates even and continuous feeding of material to the mill. A full level sensor ensures that the discharge bin always contains a sufficient quantity of weighed out raw materials to keep the mill fully loaded at all times.


The twin-shaft paddle mixer is suitable for mixing of compound feed and feed ingredients. The mixer is supplied with a double gear box drive and is in heavy duty industrial execution. Quick filling and emptying, and full emptying through “bomb doors” are some of the advantages. It is possible to add up to 3 different liquids during the mixing process. The mixer is available with pre-bin and discharge bin. Mixing time and accuracy are verified by MTSE, Germany.
