As the New Year unfolds, many embrace a commitment to health by turning to nutritional supplements. This surge in demand has propelled the nutraceutical market’s growth in the past two decades. Various factors, including post-holiday upticks, continuous material discoveries, and a global health focus, contribute to the industry’s expansion.
The Nutraceutical Landscape
Beyond seasonal upticks, a multitude of external factors shape the nutraceutical industry. Daily discoveries of new materials promoting a better standard of living drive the market’s constant pursuit of innovative ways to incorporate these findings into products. A growing preference for natural alternatives to pharmaceutical medications, particularly among younger generations, intensifies the demand for nutritional supplements at an earlier age. Additionally, a global trend towards personal health improvement opens new markets beyond the United States.
The Role of Plow Mixer Technology
In response to these pressures, companies in the nutritional supplement sector are turning to plow mixer technology. This unique approach enables multiple unit operations within a single vessel, offering unparalleled efficiency and versatility.
Diverse Applications: Plow mixers, such as those offered by Processall, are utilized across industries, from Metal Stearate production to vanilla bean sterilization.
Size Range: Available in various sizes, from 4 L lab units to 30000 L industrial units, accommodating different production scales. All Processall machines can also be purpose built to fit the application requirements. Also, we offer the ability for customers to come in and learn how we customize our machines to fit their specific needs.
¹Come in two different versions– a short compact model and a longer thinner model
² Can be equipped with an optional tilting mechanism
